I like those ones from Turbosmart that can be actuated off a switch. I'm thinking of one for artificially raising my basic boost to a suitable level for my uprated APC box (which I only run occasionally). So long as you neuter the APC boost control function and keep things at a "safe level" (read about 0.75 bar peak boost) and always use high octane fuel, I can't see a problem. You can of course leave APC in there as a mere knock detector. Run an LED off a 12V source to the anode and a solder the cathode side to pin 19 in the APC box. But ... Ideally, figuring out the problem properly would be good. Using the MBC as an interim solution should be okay ... So long as you keep things quite standard. Paul 1989 900 Turbo S
