Fail yet again. I failed first though.
Ebay in-cockpit MBC review

T goes in engine bay, **** goes in cockpit. There's a ball and spring in the T, and just a screw in the big body. Boost moves ball, but the screw bleeds some of that boost. The second barb on the bigger piece is VTA, you can leave it in the car, but it's loud, so the barb is there to vent it back outside somewhere.

Seriously? Dude you know better then to spend your money on ebay crap like that.
Its just an adjustable bleed. You put the T in between the boost source and the WG, the mega china controller gets plugged in to the T and you could let the end vent or plumb it back in to your intake somewhere pre-turbo.

But what you will most likely do is hook it up once then proceed to toss it into a dumpster.

I believe Perrin makes a remote MBC.. I liked it a lot because the **** is attached to an extender.

Will this new addition help you get into the 300whp club?

Nice silicone hose, should work well for bleeding your brakes.

So after a ton of us got the nxs and have had great results and a few got that ebay piece of **** and reported bad results you go and order the latter, shitty one?

lol I guess. His "**** everyone, I do what I want" attitude is refreshing (and more so his financial ability and determination to actually go through with his plans and keep the build going instead of aborting it), though I can only imagine how much money all these screw ups have cost over time

A lot less than paying for someone to do all the work, and a lot less than having a shop do repairs/maintenance on my daily. Keep in mind that this is the car I have learned the wrenching ropes on. That's my cost justification for my hobby.

What's your justification for ignoring everybody's advice?

Sometimes you just have to do things yourself. I personally have made the mistake of buying something people have told me not to and tried to make it work then in the end buy what I should have, but sometimes things work out. I would say Faeflora is on a learning curve still but has come a long long long long way in the last year.lol

True, but it would drive me crazy knowing it was there. Although to be fair there was an attempted fix with some ill fitting plate and a stick welder

Holy ******* ****. Perhaps I only bought that particular MBC because I did not know that it was a piece of ****? Could it be that I have not read every thread in the universe? Just maybe?

Whatever. Even at my current lameass proven 280whp power level my car is still faster than 99% of the boosted miatas out there. I win.
