you dont need or want a manual boost controller with the DSP. Load the DSP 93 octane tune and be on your way
if you want to get a little more fancy, get a CMR DSP tune and up the boost.
what year?
If you got an auto, see if you can locate a S1 pcm and start saving for a trans rebuild.
If you're a mtx, skip the S1 pcm

I'd try and find a stage 1 PCM for your year & trans instead of the diablo... MJB ((what year & trans??)

Why do you advise a Stg 1 instead?
