no idea and don't care. i paid too much $$ for this car to do a risky mod like that. the computer pulls boost and timing when it detects knock, so if you are using a manual boost controller, how does the computer pull boost away if it starts knocking?!?

Re: manual boost controller (p0cket penguins)

Here's a bit more constructive advice:<p>Send an IM Boosted S60R. He's one of the experts on this.<p>Blot may be able to help to. Johann is also pretty knowledgeable and should be able to give you good answers. <p>There are others, but I haven't gotten time to think of them.
