I would say go with a manual, less problems. Better yet, get one of 2 stage manual ones, I think Turbo-XS makes it.

I've got to go with the manual boost controller. I haven't really needed mine yet breaking in my engine but it is so hard to screw up. I had the AVC-R before and I could never get it to work right. I think it was me because Steve Kan just looked at it and it straightened up.

My boost controller is the dual stage so I can have 2 settings with was a must for me. If I couldn't have gotten that feature then I would have still picked another boost controller than the AVC-R. Probably the profec B...

I concur as well. The only bad thing about the AVCR is doens't allow you to use a simple push button to select between the HI and LO boost or off. You have to hit prev to get out of the data log/display mode, then hit prev again, then scroll down then hit left or right to change between. Not just a simple push.


oh well...

I dont understand why someone would want to have a complicated boost controller. I have the profec-b but im going to ditch it someday and get a 2stage manual.

The simplicity of the Profec B is 2nd to none. Manual boost controllers are junk compared to EBC's. They might be able to make some people happy, but I'd never go back to using one. Reasons why? This subject has been covered about 1,000,000 times already.

Going from a MBC to a EBC is sort of like moving on from eating only Big Mac's to eating Filet Mignon. Both will fill your belly and taste good, but everybody already knows which one is better even though pricier.

Wastegated? Perhaps the best way from what many have experienced, but I've never gone with such a setup.
