Default boot controller question

fill in your profile so we know what car and mods you have


As for boost controllers, you can add an MBC to a wrx to increase boost - but without a tune or at least monitoring/logging your car after you increase the boost you run the risk of damaging your engine.

Also, rather then use an MBC, if you have a 2001+ wrx or sti, you can use the factory boost controller to increase and control boost just fine - all you need is ECUFlash and an openport cable.

Now go fill in your profile

You can do it with an openport 1.3U cable and the free ECUFlash (or RomRaider) software - you can also do it with COBB AP.

Check the romraider forums on what to do.

If you are unsure, you can get an email tune for around $100 that will be able to sort out your current mods and add a more boost.

Not really a built motor discussion question, and the answer to your question is in unibomber's faq.
