Default perrin ebcs review

hello all today i present you with the perrin ebcs pro ta da!!
as you can see the quality is very nice. very good product.
i also like that it is round rather then the squarish mac valve type ebcs you usually see being sold.stupid reason to like something i know but thats ok^_^

as for performance it holds boost alot better,its kinda hard describe it just feels smoother and more controlled especially in the top end..turbo feels like it spools alot sooner but it could be a crazy placebo effect.
i feel like this mod would help guys that are catless alot.
mine is catless and boost was all sorts of weird it'd spike sometimes and if it got cold it'd over boost which was very frustrating

but with this ebcs its very consistent weather hot or cold which is awesome especially for all us that get to enjoy cold winters. im very satisfied.i paid 110 brand new i believe normal retail without shipping is 130.
i believe this will be even more use full after the new turbo comes
anyways any questions let me know i also have provided a data-log just in case you were curious
it is a 3rd gear 2500 to red line pull

Are you running an external wastegate with this? Am I correct in believing that it offers no performance benefit unless you are running an external gate? How is it holding up several months later?

hey there brown ops!!!there is is a benefit still without having a external wastegate for me the turbo spooled quicker and held boost alot better in the upper rpms. the car just felt more consistent as a whole after i got the ebcs. and its been holding up great.

its a great piece! hope this helps you

Did you get this from Perrin? If so, did you get a free e-tune from them or anyone else? Thanks for the review and info! Very helpful.

i actually ordered it through a different vendor,i do not believe perrin does free e tunes for these,i got my tune from matt at 555motorsports.com the tune is freaking amazing and the car runs great if you can contact him through http://www.555motorsports.net/index.html

he is a really great guy and will go to great lengths to make sure your satisfied with your car and with his tune,he does e tunes for about 150 and you get an unlimited number of revisions for 1 month then free tweaks after that
