I have the same problem with my Hydra. Just can't get it to be stable in the morning and the evening. Overshoot in the morning and boring drive home in the evening... sigh. So I talked to FM about it and they told me to get a manual boost controller. Apparently they no longer include the solenoid with their FM II kit. The only include the MBC. Guess they got tired of the complaints too.

Got a load of new parts to install but my new MBC is scheduled to come in on Friday. Day in the shop working on the car on Saturday! Oh yeah, then retuning EVERYTHING :(

Just a little bumpage for those that wished they had closed loop EBC with their megasquirt.....

MS2E has it. I had no idea till I just looked. It has closed loop EBC though. You just enter the P, I, and D settings and then a "boost control target table" shows up instead of "boost control duty table". And if I go into autotune, you can autotune the table. Crazy.

AFAIK this doesn't really work - or am I wrong? Abe? I thought the code for this was wrong in some way?!

The Hydra has a boost control target table as well. Unfortunately, the only thing it is useful for is setting your overboost limit. 3 psi above any value on the table and it cuts fuel. I got my MBC in the mail on Friday. Hopefully I can get the car back together today and start retuning everything. By the way, the FM one is sourced from 3barracing.com. Price is about the same, but shipping from CO was a byatch! 1 lb UPS package = $13...

I'm just going to chime in and point out that while there is a handful of people contributing to this thread and related ones and expressing their desire for a stable control of the EBC with MS, there are a LOT of people, like myself who while not contributing posts to this, are waiting and following along and hoping for something to emerge that works better than what we've got with MS's EBC currently. Until then, I for one will be using a reliable and cheap MBC from ebay. If the MSPNP guys are listening or anyone else who knows a load more about this than I who can actually help develop a better option, know that there is a large demand for this.

Still say you're a bunch of sandy vaginas pissing and moaning over a $200 ecu that just happens to include EBC. Guess I'm easy to please when I pay pennies for something. I figure if I have more boost in the morning then I get to work faster and it works out in the end.

What are the stand alone boost controller options? Any that have accurate closed loop boost control?

not that I know of. None of them use a temperature correction table to adjust the solenoid values. It would be awesome, but honestly, it would probably take FOREVER to tune it correctly. That is why I decided to (probably) sacrifice a little spool time and just get the MBC. That way I can start tuning for A/F ratio and get some mileage back.

Reading that thread is pretty typical for that site, I'm actually really disappointed in the level of support offered to many areas of Megasquirt. **** I posted a question on one of their boards and it took 2 weeks before anyone even replied, and they basically stated my problem was something I mentioned already fixed so they didn't even bother to fully read my post.

I've got a 7psi wastegate spring, so I'll just put a switch to disable the EBC and run on 7psi.

the same frustration elesjuan is having with B&Gs support and such is what prompted this.


Betcha his software won't read coolant temps from -40*F to 215*F.
