Default TurboXs Boost Controller

Was turned onto these after seeing Deez92's install.
The Dual one can instantly switch between 2 boost settings from inside the car.
The switch is like a fighter jet and is so cool!!!
Check it out:

Looks like a nice rig:



Their price is $203.00

Here is that Jet Fighter switch:



Description:

Dual stage Boost Controller - Two preset boost levels allow you to switch from "street" to "race" boost with the flip of a switch from inside the cabin - even while under full boost

All the things that you like about the Standard Boost Controller with the added ability to switch between 2 pre-set boost levels from inside the cabin - even when under full boost! The TurboXS Dual Stage Boost Controller is installed in line with the pressure hose running from the positive pressure side of the turbo to the waste gate actuator system. A switch is wired back to the cabin to switch between boost levels. The switch is lit when on high boost. The kit includes: Dual Stage Boost Controller & Mounting Bracket, Electrical Plug and Wiring Loom, 6mm Pressure Hose, Control Switch, and Necessary Installation Accessories. It can be used on vehicles with internal and external waste gate systems and on vehicles fitted with factory electronic boost control systems. (Electronic boost controllers must be disabled.)

That switch would be great by the traction control on the dash...right in the center!

Rob,

It should fit with no problem. There is a blank there that is used on the Canadian model for a "headlight motor adjustment" that raises or lowers the headlights according to weight.

The 2 stage controller switch would look good there, and should not be a problem to access. Just follow the directions in the DIY section for removing the center console cover to get to that panel.

HEY, DOES THIS TURBO BOOST ACTUALLY GIVE YOU MORE HP AND WOULD IT VOID THE WARRANTY IF YOU BLEW UP THE TURBO?
