Default Boost control with Megasquirt?

Perhaps I'm retarded and this is just a given, but how is everyone doing boost control with the Megasquirt? Are you all using MBC/EBCs or does the MS do it somehow?

there are circuit mods that will allow ms to control a fast switching solenoid. If you google search it you should come up with the msns site that will have the diagram for it. There is a member that has it working on his already, hopefully he will chime in with more detail.

I did the circuit mods this weekend, real easy. It's not functional yet, but I used a Saab 900 solenoid. Google "megasquirt boost control", I used a thread from an e30 board along with Al's thread.
