Default Installed Dual stage boost controller

Now that the build is done and the car is running great....I can't leave it alone. So today I installed my TurboXs Dual stage boost controller. Install was easy..about 30 mins. taking my time. Mounted switch right below stero. Hit road for some setting (Long empty backroad). Ended up with 8 psi for first stage and 13 psi when I flip the switch. Some reason underhood pic didnt come out..I'll try again tomorrow

I set the first stage at wastegate (approx. 8psi) Then if I want more flip the switch. Even under fuul boost I can flip switch.

Very nice, clean! And the mounting is cute. Good short lengths, too. Well done!

I guess I always wonder what the issue is, though - when do you need less boost? :-)
