Just picked one up. It is worth the $15 just to play with it. I don't have the time to install my E-Boost2 right now!

I bought an MBC that looked exactly like that one on eBay under the brand-name VOOdoo MBC. It was by far the most reliable and best functioning part of my whole setup. I think I paid $15 and made a small mount that affixed it to the fender-lip behind the headlight. There's a thread I started somewhere with pics and observations.

Even after I went MS and was using the EBC, I still left it mounted in the engine bay just in case I needed it.

spool must be measured on a flat surface starting at 1.5K-2K in your 1:1 gear.

Awesome. im jealous. although I'm currently hitting 13psi at 3600RPM, which is 400rpm faster than a few weeks ago from simple little changes to my setup. Using a MBC as well this time too.

I was kinda stunned actually. I noticed it while driving how fast it was making 1 bar and then MLV showed the numbers. I have a 15psi WG actuator and the MBC mentioned about. Before, with only the actuator it would spool around 3500rpm or a little later.

The fact that my manifold is finally not leaking helps too...

Hey everyone -- I think i'm going to pick up one of these soon.

What kind of power difference does the MBC make at lower RPMs?

SpookyFish said 15psi at 3000 rpm.. how does that feel by the seat of the pants vs lets say 3 psi that I get w/o an MBC?

I got whistling around 6 psi on a hill and 8 on a flat road. Some suggested the hose was too small and was causing the BOV to leak. I have the same MBC, but the noise was getting to me, so I took it off.

What was probably false judgement on my part. After fiddling with it and sorting a solid 15psi boost level, I'm seeing full boost at 3250-3500rpm depending on load and weather.
