Default Can I mount my MBC in the cabin?

Can I put my MBC in the cabin so I can adjust boost from inside? I have a Turbo XS high performance Boost Controller. Can I use it inside or is the tubing too long to keep it accurate?

yeppers, most people do mount them in the cabin, that's the beauty of an MBC. You'll just need some vacum line.

if you do go ahead with it, get some thick walled silicone line to keep it as accurate as possible.

I think last issue of SCC talked about why the MBC was installed under the hood instead of inside.

I would recommend installing it in the engine bay. Running all that extra vacuum hose can cause the pressure to vary quite a bit from hot to cold weather.

You can put the controller in the trunk if you want. Just be warned though, the longer the lines on the MBC the less control you have. You will have spikes. You will have a hard time keep it consistent. Word to the wise, keep the lines on your boost controller of any sort as short as possible.
