Default Finally got the MBC installed!

Didn't have it installed w/the rest of the Stage 0 pkg because I didn't have my boost gauge yet. Got the gauge and MBC installed on Tuesday. What a difference a "boost" makes. I've got it set to 15.5 psi max boost. Seems to be a safe, yet noticeable increase. Man, when the turbo kicks in, it really kicks in. It's strong...more like a thrust than a spike. The head definitely gets into the headrest during full throttle! Of course, now I'm wettin' my lips (& trying to pad my checking acct) for the Stage 1....if it ever gets released, that is!

BTW...Happy 4th July to All!!

I'm using the stock boost control solenoid right now, controlled by the tec3.

Nothing beats a ball and spring MBC (like the one I had on my car for the last 15000 miles) for that kick in the @ss turbo feeling.
