which boost controller should i run

well guys,

im stuck on which boost controller i should run in my car. i have ideas. but i dont want to make the wrong decision and get something im going to regret. here are my options, tell me which you would prefer for my setup:

i have a on3 turbo kit, i wanna run 18-20psi max, but for street i will run off the waste gate(.8 bar) if i have to(option). i wanna have a setup that will allow me to switch up without much hassle.

options:

hallmon pro MBC

turbosmart single stage MBC

turbosmart dual stage MBC

greddy Profec B Spec 2 EBC

AEM tru boost gauge type EBC

HKS EVC-S EBC

If there any other boost controllers that you guys know of that are good, but dont cost an arm and a leg chime in please.

For only 2 boost settings I'd keep it simple and cheap...sure an electronic one is nice. But I got other things I can spend $500-$1000 on...like an auto swap

you have hallman pro right?

when you dont run high boost settings, do you just bypass the hallman pro or just turn it down?

Yea...currently I just turn it down. But I grabbed a evap cannister solenoid from a Fox. And going to use that to make my own dual stage...solenoid open car runs wastegate spring pressure. Close solenoid that forces it to go through the Hallman which is set for 20lbs. When the solenoid is open the Hallman acts as a checkvalve. I got the solenoid for free from a junkyard...just gotta wire it up to a toggle now.

Well, just bought a E Boost Street off ebay. Best price i've seen as far as i've been looking...brand new in box, said inventory blowout until the end of the month for $274.95 to my door. They have 100% positive feedback and looks like 1 left if anybody's interested... tunerpartsusa is the name.

I would recommend AEM Tru Boost. I had a Greedy and installing the AEM unit was FAR easier and simple. I am not familiar with the other products I am just commenting on what I have experienced.

after thinking really hard, i have choose to go with the turbosmart e boost street. the reason i choose them is because of the ease of control and swap over of boost settings. also i can hook up my meth kit to the controller and run my meth kit of the boost controller since it reads rpm and boost pressure. i really appreciate you guys giving me all this info.

I was wondering, how much is a boost controller needed? My car gets driven only a couple times per month, and I'd want it making max boost pretty much all the time. Does a boost controller have other uses? Thanks...

electronic boost controllers do many things. manual boost controllers do exactly that, manually control boost, some have gate systems that spike boost and others dont. now electronic boost controllers have multiple settings for boost, gain, boost correction factor, over boost and rev limit warnings, and some have the capability to attach meth kits to which can be controlled by the boost controller. the price is what your going to hurt on. a good manual is about 100-175 dollars. a good electric boost controller is from 350- 800+dollars. i was really wondering which was the best for my situation, and found out that for the money and what i need the turbosmart e boost street will do me perfect. it will run both my settings i want, and control my meth kit.
