EBC? what EBC?

I'm probably getting my MS3 to do boost control, but this seems to be a good solution all around. I could just wait for my MS3 but I'm not even sure it'll be a winter project anymore lol. $50ish worth of parts for full control is pretty nice. thoughts?

that looks nice. but it doesn't seem to do everything this one does. I need to find my pressure regulator.

so basicly this is what you need. just one that adjust at less psi. the arrow side to the wastegate and the threaded side to the pressure regulator.

Nah man. read the article. It's got boost creep protection (quicker spool), pressure release between shifts, and boost control.

from what i read all it is, is a pressure relief valve. when oost signal from mbc reaches set psi it allows tha signal to pass through to the wastegate. (fancy name for pressure relief valve)

yea. It's a whole thing tho. I can make one for $50. The site you posted has it for $75 and doesn't have all of the other parts to it.

the sight I posted actually is a mbc+a its whats called a anticipator which is pretty much the oppisite of the one your trying to do but it makes for very precise boost adjustments. I can adjust my Saabs boost in .5 psi incriments. (spelling I know, I'm tired) but can you imagine all three together!!!! insane adjustability!!

MBC - for max boost adjustments
+a -for elimination of boost creep and precise adjustability + spool time
EBC - for elimination of wastegate creep + spool time

hhhm its a thought!

if I ever get my MS from Mitch it will have full boost control, flat shift rev limiter, and 2 step rev limiter. I really hope he comes through...

Yea but that might a ways away for me. This is a $50 temp fix that works really well. Not bad IMO.
