Default Turboxs UTEC Pros/Cons ?

IS the Turboxs UTEC the best at what it does and what i am looking for? I want one device to control my boost levels duty cycles of injectors air/fuel ratios. Will i need a seperate boost controller with this device? Can it handle over 20 psi of boost level? Is there any other possible electronics that i will need or does this thing cover them all? If it is the best why? or why not? Im not worried about not knowing how to use it im sure i can learn.

from what ive heard the UTEC handles boost great...A/F isnt a problem and the cool thing is that it properly handles timing where you want it to.

you should really go read the while utec thread before you get flamed. Every question you asked in answered in there and then some. Yes it controls boost, it is rock solid at what you set it at. It will allow you to tune every aspect of your engine if you choose to do that. It will come with there stage maps loaded in stock.

As noted by Jesse, I'd recommend (re)reading the Utec thread above. You do not need a seperate boost controller. I am running 20 PSI on the stock solenoid, Phil is running 22 (at the track) on it, and Jorge has run everything from 14~19 I believe. It works and it's accurate. No need to drop money on extras. That's why my EBC went up for sale. Yes the Utec will do fuel/timing management as wellb (provided you know what you are doing). A better suggestion would be to get it tuned, on a dyno. It's worth every penny.
