Default Stock MBC with EWG

I have just attempted to tune my car with an mbc because I wasn't sure how to plumb in the ewg to the stock boost controller cause the line goes to the intake.
No matter how much I turn down the boost controller I still peak at 22psi. I should be at 19.5.
Could you please send or post pics of your ewg setups on a stock boost controller?

Search harder, use the advanced search and get familiar with it.

I can go on and on. The search is your friend.... use this search query I did JUST for YOU.

If you cant find the info in any of those, go to turbosmarts web page, go to any EWG, then click the "Downloads" tab. It will give you install instructions for an EWG, they are GENERAL instructions for any EWG and boost control set up. I believe page 7 is where they start.

Thanks for the help but like I said. The search didn't return any results. And neither did those. In trying to find pictures of an ewg setup in a stock boost controller. I know it can be done.

Mine is setup on the stock controller.... and I used the Turbosmart Diagram! Any 2 port controller is what you need to look at, those links show it.

What spring is in you EWG? Turning the MBC all the way down should essentially be spring pressure. For a MBC setup you should have the line running from the MBC to the "bottom" port on the EWG (all of the other "bottom" ports should have plugs in them). The top port should be open to atmosphere.

A 22psi spring pressure setup is disaster if that were to be the case. Also, boost spike and then it bleeds off???
