Ever thought of searching? There were a few posts a while back that people had installed it and found some caveats, etc.

Other then that, it worked for them.

Try FCD as a search word

I use the HKS FCD with my VF30, STI injectors, HKS EVCIV & HKS SAFR etc. Since installing the FCD, I have yet to hit boost cut and have had no problems with it whatsoever. It is completely invisible, which is exactly its purpose...
You can tap into the ECU - which wires exactly, I forget, but call HKS USA and they will give you the exact colors/codes and get the wiring diagram off of www.northursalia.com
Also, I set the FCD to "10". Are you using a bigger than stock turbo? cause the stock turbo probably doesn't work great above 16.5 psi......

One word : potentiometer.

It works, it's simple, and it's cheap.

Just worry about lack of fueling when you get into the higher boost levels.

I agree with 8Complex. The HKS item is very cheap and simple but the MkIV guys say stay away from it. The GReddy BCC is a clamp, so it's better in design. I don't know if it will work for the EJ20 or not.

I use the mrt and it is a clamp. It is pretty cheap and so far works just fine.

Is it a clamp for MAP? I think I am experiencing boost cutt.
I have STI injectors, supra pump, APS R/T spec kit.
seems to cut something at heavy boost over 120MPH(really pushing the car(18-19)PSI
Since I have a unichip it should remove fuel cut?right?
I was told maybe I have air prob?
I think I need a clamp.
what do you think?

I have a Vishnu Stage 2 (unichip) and I get the cut in 4th gear and it's annoying as hell. Second and third gear I get a nice 17.5 psi then on a cold day I get 18 psi in fourth and experience boost cut. I run a MBC and like it, except for this. I am really looking into getting a FCD but am worried about overboosting. I have the pump and STI injectors, is it okay to get like 18-19 psi?

Try pm'ing Pace

He made a few of them, I'm running his right now.

Some loose details:

- Adjustable clamp-type FCD.
- Professional black-box packaging.
- Requires splicing into ECM harness (3 wires).
- Installation instructions included for UTec'd cars, as well as for those with no aftermarket EMS.
- Pre-configured clamp voltage with instructions on adjustment (should not be necessary).
- In-built circuit protection from voltage spikes.
- To be priced under $50.
