Default installed boost controler

woohoo man did this make a difference. the tires brake loose even with traction control on. before my boost gague would read between 3-5 pounds of boost. now it stayes around 10 pounds. never goes over 15 pounds. i know i can get more out of it, but i can't lie, i'm too scared. the car feel really good now. took no more than 5 min. to install. hopefully i can take it to the track soon, aswell as get it dynoed. by the way i used the turboXs controler.

What kind of guage pod did you use? Where you able to find one that matched the GT interior?

deez92, is this the same boost controller as described here? They have three models and it looks like what is referred to here also.

Spiking to 17psi is rather risky, spiking to 18-20psi is just Insane and asking for trouble. I have the $50 Hallman controller and have mine spiking at 13psi dropping to 10 or 11psi, well within safe limits and still WAY faster than stock. I went back to stock for about an hour the other day, and it was like the turbo charger wasnt even there, definatly cant live without the boost controller now.
