Default Boost controllers BEFORE ebay

OK, I'll give you guys a couple of days on these before I put them on ebay.

Hallman Pro MBC (purple) - wrapped in a paper towel for the ONE DAY that I actually used it before going to electronic boost control. I wrapped it because I only wanted to use it for a one day test and knew that I would be reselling it. You could consider it NEW (but tested). I'd take $70 for it.

HKS VBC manual boost controller - Probably has 100 miles on it (only used for testing but was on the car for many small runs). I'd take $50 for it.

Then I borrowed a friends JimB style MBC to see how it did. Then I purchased the Hallman Pro to see how it would do (again, just a 1 day test). None of the 4 did any good for me. I finally went back to EBC and replaced my vac tubing with a larger size and redid my exhaust system. Something in that combo made the boost control great. My guess was my extremely small tubing was hurting my boost control. I never did go back to check the MBCs again because I wanted to run EBC all along. I'm selling all my other stuff since it is now working.

The Hallman has been sold (or at least a MO has been sent for it). I still have the HKS MBC if anyone is interested.
