Default Poll: EBC or MBC

I am deciding if I want to install a an EBC on my MS, its not hard obviously but im wondering if I really need it. I am planning to plumb the turbo in without any BC because I want to run it at 8psi for a while. But then turn it up later, dont know if I want to add the functionality now or just use a MBC later.

Kinda on the fence.

What do you use?

the EBC is a $30 investment. You're crazy not to.

The solenoid is still $20, the components are $5 or less.


think about this. if you install a toggle switch between the MS and solenoid, you now have on-the-fly hi/low boost. Since the solenoid closes with power, and you fail to give it a ground by breaking the circuit the turbo will spool to the wastegate pressures, flip the switch back and MS takes control of the DC% again.

Probably could get the solenoid for free as well.

Just delete this thread, the answer is obvious.
