Default UTEC boost controller or SBC-id

sup people, trying to decide.... I know the utec has a boost controller option using the stock solenoid, but i am planning to get an sbc-id boost controller this tuesday. Would it be better to save the $500 and use it towards the UTEC? eitehr way i will be getting a utec in the near future. My main concern is the solenoid. Wouldnt it be better to have an aftermarket solenoid such as the dual solenoid that the sbc-id provides? or is the stock solenoid plenty. anyways, help me out a bit!! thanks!

UTEC's closed loop boost control owns....

Hardley helps technicaly... but an enthusiastic post whore response, nonetheless.

For stock turbo the UTEC is fine. I had to get EBC as did many others when you upgrade to a larger unit.

god,

Can you expand on your reply a little? I have a VF30 and will be getting a UTEC in the next month or so.

Are you saying I should keep my SBC-id? I was going to sell it after hearing what most other people have been saying.

Have you tried running using the UTEC's cloosed loop boost control vs the SBCid even though you are then using the stock solenoid that I know you are not a big fan of, IIRC you didn't think that it reacted as fast as the bigger dual ones that come with the SBCid?

I agree with what you say when it was the unichip controlling boost but if the closed loop is as good as Jorge says it is I could it be a better option. Or is the cloosed loop boost control still in testing?

We blessed static figure closed loop testing last week, and are currently testing the matricied version of it. If it all goes well, and it passes the panel test, ya'll will get it in the next public release.

So far, thumbs up... but I parked my car for the last few days till tommorow so I can find my misfire issue.

Well, from when I talked to Mark this week I am about 2 weeks out on the list based on the volume the are receiving at this time so maybe by then it could be ready to go, that would be nice. Other wise I will leave my MBC on there for now. I have an SBCid sitting in the garage that I was going to use but I think that I will just sell it now.

Dan,
The Utec boost control works quite well with a larger turbo. When did you try it?
