Default so I guess I need some sort of boost control for te 35r :D

What are my other rotated brothrens running. My tuner "Jetfan" and I are lurking for a controler. Any suggestions? I don't need anything fancy either.

I know right. Nino out of suggestions. Actually, He's looking into it. All I can say is he's awsome with a freakin Utec. Watching him tune is like watching my brother play CSS.

Hallman MBC.. Out of all the 35r cars I have tuned its what I use 90% of the time. The other times Blitz DSBC... Thats usually for the cars that want multiple maps pump, pump/meth, race, race meth... I have had 0 problems with either the MBC or EBC... with the EBC I was able to hold 38psi to redline...

That's why I'm asking. We werent to sure what to go with for the EWG. He's used to internal gates. I kinda like the Hallman because if I want, I can install an incar adjuster.

I defer to your experience, but isn't there something you could do when putting it together to ensure that doesn't happen?

The forge includes that option for less money than the hallman. Any ebc would be fine, but the forge is more cost effective, better looking, better quality IMHO and wasy to use.

Although I am researching this GM solenoid idea...

You could also do the hybird GM/MBC setup that ride5000 uses. It is a very nice setup has the advantages of both with no drawbacks.

Well, I have managed to tune a few cars using just the utec and factory solenoid with no ABC before and had great success. This being with much smaller turbos though. It would be interesting to see how well the GM one would work.

Ill have to get my hands on one and try it in my car first although right now my car wont dip below 18psi with the forge actuator anyway so I may bhave to switch to the stock actuator first.

You can leave the forge actuator in but that will be your min boost setting. Adding the GM will allow you to go higher and hold the boost out longer.

Oh, I realize that. i was just thinking for a fair comparison test going stock actuator would give me more a more acurate comparison to the factory+abc option the utec typically uses.

I already know for a fact the actuator solve the boost loss and boost creep problems on my sti. Now I just want to reduce the amount of vacuum plumbing and bs under the hood. This sounds like a way of doing that.

Well let me know, I'm currently the highest bidder for the Hallman Pro at a whopping $37.50

AEM Makes a really nice boost solenoid.... Even comes with AN Fittings...

I have ran both the AEM and GM BCS the GM IS CRAP IMO...

Yes its more expensive but please dont say its a waste of money unless you have actually had one to compare to a GM unit.

Ultimatly for me the appeal is the possibility of reducing components under the hood, or reducing them for that matter. The factory ECU is conjunction with a utec can do a good job of controlling boost, the weak point is the solenoid. Cure that and I expect you have a winner.

The aem looks like a EBC component, not like something I would try wiring into my factory system.

I didn't like the AEM one either. I just ordered the Hallman MBC nino. Hope you'll enjoy it!
