MBC question, could find answer in other threads

I have a question about Manual Boost Controller. Will a manual boost controller set at stock boost level help the performance of the car? I have heard that MBC are a little dangerous to run for reasons i didn't understand, would it still be dangerous if i kept boost at stock level?

Yes, it will help the car. It will help you make more low end power. Just keep it at stock peak boost. Don't get tempted....

What should it be set at for mile high, still 14 psi? So if i kept that it wouldn't be dangerous? I know running mods will increase danger, but i don't wanna walk into a bad project without knowing it.

Also would any boost controller work or do i need a high performance one just to keep stock level? I was looking into the TXS standard.

Get a brand name and you will be fine. Don't get the generic ones off Ebay. The TurboXS model works very well. The best one is probably the Hallman RX (www.boostcontrollers.com). Set your peak boost to whatever your boost gauge reads now.
