yeah for more simplicity sake you could run a WG with the boost setting you want in 1st and then in every other gear you could have a system like this to bleed style, upp the boost.... so have a momentary button on the shifter that will allow connection while your thumb is on it during 1st gear or whatever and connect teh system via a 5 pin relay and use the 87a pin to arm the boost upping system..... there fore youwill always be in higher boost unless your finger is on the button which will dissarm the boost controler.. falling back onto the stock WG spring setting

It should, but why not just run one MBC for "hi-boost" and let the w/g spring take care of the low boost ?

You're saying you tune your 's AFRs via boost controller?

That's nice.
no, I was refering to his real-time ems...the a/f is tuned, but what about ignition.
thats all.

most people using junkyard turbo's need more than the 5-7psi the stock WG comes with, but if someone is using an external unit you could leave it out



i know there is a VW part that you can use for the electronic 1-way valve but i have to remember the part number. they are like $10 at the dealer and can hold ~35psi,much more than what 99% of people need





EF's are the ---- in camo. and is that an Si seat in front of the tires in the first pic??
