Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: Can I lower the boost

A: No a boost controller can only go down as low as the wastegate spring will allow.


Q: how does it make my car faster?

A: Our design will increase power output by raising the pressure the turbo creates. Every engine combination is different and we cannot give you an exact number. As a general rule your HP is a function of boost pressure and naturally aspirated HP. The magic number to use is 14.7. that is because there is 14.7 psi in 1 atmospheric pressure.Example : NA mustang making 300hp and at 14.7 psi it should make 600  at 22psi it will make 750hp. In addition to raising the pressure our design will hold the wastegate closed longer, therefore making the boost come in faster. In some applications as much as 600rpm.
