One of the popular ones is the Split Second BCS. I would check them out. I had it on my gti for a little while and liked it. www.splitsec.com

don't waste your $$ on an elec MBC. It's not something you really are gonna adjust on the fly anyway. You can get one that works BETTER here....... 20vturbo.com

we put one in a friends last week and he had a elec MBC and it never worked this good- mine should be here soon

But remember w/o a chip if your boost spikes past 15-16lbs. you will go into "limp mode"


-I bet I know what your next question will be.....

its a safety feature built into the programing of the ECU. Whaen you are stock, if you boost more than 15-16 lbs then the ECU cuts the power of your engine to where you can only boost about 5- your car turns into an instant slug. You can reset this by turning the car off then on . When chipped it ususally does not hit limp til 24-25 lbs,
