Boost Controller help

I just got a Turbo XS high performance boost controler, its the manual one. and i was wondering if anyone knew after i disengage the stock one and install the new one, what type of tuning i have to do to get like roughly 16 or so psi out of it.

Any help would be spectacular, thanx.

I'm assuming you have a boost gauge, right?

Once you have it installed, adjust it to low boost. Really low. Basically as low as you can adjust it. Then go for a drive and see where your boost is. Then adjust it ¼ turn in, and try it again. You'll have to do this many times, but it's better to go slowly than to adjust it too much and hurt something in the engine. Once you get it close, you can fine tune it by just barely turning it in until it gets where you want it.

Also, I forgot to mention, test it in 3rd gear, or going uphill. You need to put a load on the engine for it to work properly.

Yes. You need to adjust any kind of boost controller slowly. Although EBS's can be set for a certain amount of boost, it's best to have a good boost gauge to make sure that when your EBC says "15psi" that you actually have 15psi. As for testing it in 3rd gear, yes you need to do that too. You need to have a load on the engine.
