Default ECUtek + Boost Controller

I did a search and didnt find what i was looking for, but I just got my ECUtek tuned and am very happy with the numbers. Tom @ Payn Tech (tuner) set the boost on my VF22 at a low 17 PSI to be safe with a good amount of power. If it was ever needed to beat a good match in a drag race I was thinking of getting a simple manual boost controller to pump the boost up a little maybe to like 19 or wathever. I was wondering if this would be ok and not lean out my engine. Will the ECUtek still run the same fuel? Any help would be great, thanks.

Buy Delta Dash and make use of the User Tune feature if your ecutek tuner enabled this. Add fuel, reduce timing

Do not just turn up the boost.

I had my car reflashed with ECUtek also. I am using the VF30. Rich at Dyno Comp set my boost to max at 17 psi and said that I shouldn't use any boost controller at all. Mohommad at MZM uses one because he is running an APS SR55 turbo and there is no need with our smaller turbos. He agrred wth Rich from Dyno Comp

I'm running an EcuTek flashed by kingpin. I had an MBC previous to the flash and have left it on with no issues.

Getting ready for a VF22 upgrade.

Kind of off topic. 4830 Deuce.... why such low boost with the VF22? Is that all you can run with the ECUtek? My friend has the 22 but with UTEC running 18.5lbs of boost with 93oct for low boost setting and 21lbs with 100oct high boost. I wanted to go with ECUtek but I don't want to if you can only run 17lbs safely.

Boost in not designated by the Engine Management. You could run any amount of boost with the EcuTek. There are a lot of different philosophies to tuning Subarus but keep in mind boost is not independent. There is a fine balance going on between the boost, fuel, and timing. Not to mention a couple dozen other parameters. The goal is to make the most power and torque. I cannot speak for the tuner of this car but I would go with whatever combination works best. More information is really necessary before a resonable answer can be given. What does the timing curve look like? What does the AFR curve look like? Did the tuner leave you some head room for more boost or are you maxed out?

Thats one of the things he forgot to give me. I never received a print out of my power, or such things as timing, fuel etc. It was an honest mistake by tom payn (tuner) and me for not asking. It was last Saturday morning and he did me a favor by coming in to tune my car. As he was tuning I did pay close attention to my power curve which was very nice and straight tapering off very slightly as the rpms raised. I will try to stop buy and get a print out later this week and post it. Oh by the way the numbers came out to be 240whp and 239ft lbs of torque on a mustang dyno with the shop loading door open in 25 degree weather. Thanks for the replies and keep them coming!
