Mbc?

I was wondering if getting a MBC is a good idea I have an aftermarket full turbo back exhaust, aftermarket turbo, aftermarket intercooler kit, aftermarket air intake, walboro 255 fuel pump, and 565cc sti pink injectors. Would this be a good idea??

The short answer: no.

The long answer: Boost Control FAQ: Read if you are thinking of buying one! - NASIOC.

Your best bet would be to get a 3 port electronic boost control solenoid and a protune immediately thereafter.

Would I be able to adjust my boost levels after that or would I need to get something?

A 3 port ebcs + a protune is a set it and forget it kind of thing - no adjustment necessary.

If this is a question you have to ask, then a MBC is not for you.

I'm still stuck in the past. Running a MBC still. Too lazy to change it out and retune. Damn boost creep.

Are you trying to say that I am old and remember when those cars were faster than vettes off the show room floor?

Vew I will have to find the article, but it told how to help with boost creep using a MBC...

I didn't say THAT, we have had a similar discussion in the past... MANY cars were faster than 1980's vettes

Who's getting riled now smarty pants... Yeah, but the GNX beat a twin turbo Callaway Vette, of course the Syclone beat a Ferrari...
