Ok so I dont want to destroy my engine here, but I want some more performance. I have read in numerous places that you can install a boost controller in such a way that the ECU no longer controls the boost and will allow more boost to be run. I understand that without an ECU upgrade you wont be getting the fuel delivery remapped or anything like that, but does anyone know anything about doing this. I know that its the way to blow the engine like that, but it seems to me that a few extra pounds could be run safetly, just as the ECU would do, and keep the reliability up. Anyway I was thinking about getting something like a Dawes device boost controller or something, installing it as I have seen done, or having it installed, and then running the recomended 13psi or so. Does anyone think this is a very bad idea or has anyone done this with good effect. As far as the ECU cutting off the fuel I have read on more than one occasion that this method will not allow that to happen, thats if you hook up the boost controller so the ECU still has control, inwhich case it will sense overboost and cut fuel. This method doesnt allow the ECU to sense the extra boost, of course the issue is that if the boost controller was to fail or not be set up right it will have no safety to shut it down.
