The factory control is a basic bleed valve controlled by the ECU. Does a bad job and slows down spool. Swapped for an MBC (Dawes type not bleed) works good. Wouldn't consider one on a Saab though. Why not tweak the APC and boost cut switch, they can be made to go much higher. Consider a redbox or M APC if you haven't got one already. The Toyota T-VIS cannot be adjusted. If you insist on a seperate controller, think about electronic dual stage twin solenoid controller. They can react much faster and more accuratley than a ball and spring, and you can cut boost spikes almost totally. BTW, has anyone fitted an Emanage the Bosch LH or Lucas injection? -- Carl Robson Car PC Build starts again. Homepage:
