Manual ECUs cars have no boost cut so don't worry about fuel-cut. But anything over 12psi is way too much boost for the timing of the stock tune anyways. <p>Turbo line to whatever end has the ball. Spring side to the wastegate. Keep the BCS plugged in but unhook all hoses going to it. Keeps the ECU happy.

Re: (lookforjoe)

Joe,<br>So, with that boost controller you are running it back into the one on the car? and is that a better way to do it versus just letting it sit there? Also how much boost were you running with the stock ecu? thanks <br>NIck

Re: (painthunter9)

I would leave a manual boost controller under the hood and use an electric one inside the car. If you didn't know, the S70 has about a 1/2" grommet and protective sleeve running from the engine bay to the drivers foot-well.<br>Once you get under the hood and find the lines you need to tap, the install will be pretty straight forward. I haven't boosted my S70, but I did my 940's. I used a name brand(something like TurboXS) and it adjusted with a small knob and had locking screw. I left it under the hood and had no problems. Only thing is, if you boost it up high, you can't change it until you stop and pop the hood. My 940Turbo started at ~7Psi stock. I went to 12psi and raced, and my turbo had a glow too it. I wouldn't go over 10psi. <br>When you install it, make sure you are CLOSING the boost controller so that you can get a stock PSI rating and then, with the car running slowly change it. I accidentally OPENED the boost controller my first time installing one, and boy, was that fun to test down the street.
