Exclamation EVO Electronic Boost Controller Install - HOW TO ARTICLE

Boost: the replacement for displacement. Simply increasing turbo boost over stock levels can yield decent power gains at the turn of a knob. That knob can either be on an electronic boost controller (EBC) or manual boost controller (MBC). Both types of controllers perform the same basic function: regulate the opening and closing of the wategate.

An electronic boost controller will allow you to adjust boost from the comfort of the driver seat or quickly switch between multiple preset boost settings at the push of a button. Additionally, most EBCs offer features that just cannot be had with a MBC: built-in vac/boost readings, peak boost memory, warnings, scramble modes to cut boost should an overboost situation occur and gain controls to more precisely actuate the wastegate.

Most EBC installs will be identical or very similar to this one as far as hard parts/connections, though setting up the head units will vary based on available features, so be sure to consult the user manual for your particular EBC prior to installation.

The GReddy Profec Type-S that we will be installing here is a great controller. Using the solenoid from the more elaborate Profec B Spec II and having just three knobs ala the original Profec B (HI/LOW boost and GAIN), it offers the latest on the electronic side while making it extremely easy to dial in.

* WARNING: Do not attempt to adjust boost levels without a way to monitor boost pressure (boost gauge or EBC reading if applicable)!!
* It is up to YOU to determine what is a safe boost level for your turbo, engine, octane and tune. Increased boost means increased cylinder temps and an increased risk of detonation to go along with it. Some Evos have no problem knocking at stock boost, so datalog, monitor gauges, read your plugs and boost safely!
