Default Boost Controllers

EBC vs. MBC does the EBC really offer a lot of benefits over the MBC? What is a good price for one? Would it be bad to buy one used?

the advantages of ebc over mbc are the obvious ones, adjustment on the fly and not having to pop the hood to adjust. If you are wanting to run two or three different boost levels it makes it quick and easy. There are some manual boost controllers that offer two different boost settings and you can adjust the knob from inside the car but it's not as easy as a ebc where you push the button. The downfall to the ebc is that it is not as easy to setup, requiring some wiring knowledge and tuning to work properly as well as cost. As far as used ebc's I would not buy one unless I know the person selling it, as lots of times there are missing parts as well as if a soleniod sticks it can cause a boost spike and do damage. It wouldn't be the first time that I have seen someone selling one for this reason and not being honest about it. Hope the info helps, good luck.

I'm going with an MBC. I just need a few more pieces to get my car running again and not leaking coolant then its time to get the boost turned up.

i love kcsr

also, i had fine experiences with cheap MBCs back in my teenage days. i dont see it being worth the money for an EBC unless its a serious build.

What can I say hoses get old and need to be replaced?
