Default Part Throttle boost with boost controller

I was wondering if anybody knows how to hook up a manual boost controller without getting part throttle boost.

With that AGP wastegate actuator you will always get part throttle boost.

You need a 2 stage boost controller with the AGP wga. I had the Turbo XS dual stage bc and AGP wga along with the Stage 1 upgrade. 1st stage of bc was set for 15 lbs of boost and no PTB in any gear. 2nd stage was set for 18. You'd have PTB in 1st and 2nd gears (5 speed) if you gave it too much gas. 3rd thru 5th no PTB at all. I'd punch it in 1st and 2nd gears and when I hit 3rd gear I'd go to 2nd stage. What a rush! My GT flew like a bat out of he!!. The Turbo XS dual stage bc is a manual one. You have to flip a switch to go to 2nd stage. I didn't hook mine up so I can't help you there. There are also electronic dual stage boost controllers out there but they are more complicated to hook up and a lot more spendy.
