    What is your defintion of streetable? If it is- better response, low end power, and better fuel economy the Cobb reflash is all of those things. Also, more ponies than you'll get with a MBC, also safer on your engine and turbo.

    I've heard a number of people going from MBC to Access ECU and loving the difference. I understand the "too many places to spend money" thing though. My hobbies all cost lotsa money.

    Just have patients and wait till you get your exhaust installed and then get either ecutek reflash or accessport. It is safer and you dont have to worry about how much boost to run, they set it for you in the ecu. Its worth the extra couple hundred dollars instead of th mbc.

    I've heard a lot of people get boost spikes from ball and spring type MBCs like the Joe P. I believe that God once said he had "a pile of those pieces of junk" lying around that he took off people's cars. But I don't feel like searching for conformation.

    I had a TurboXS bleeder type MBC and I had absolutely no problems with it ever. It never spiked once.

    Thanks for all the input. I do want a manual boost controller in the interum since I am waiting for a down pipe before the up pipe and other goodies. I might as well kill a few birds with one stone since I will have the thing apart.

    I helped a friend make a mbc from parts at Lowe's, but it was a bear to dial it in without a serious spike.

    How are the cobb reflashes? I guess I should say, after I get my exhaust, up-pipe, down-pipe and intake what would you recommend as a management tool to get the air/fuel right and up the boost safely. Coob? Ecutek?

    17 psi is fine for stock turbo. i know plenty of people running that on their stock turbo w/ no problems.
    as long as u dont go over that and at least have a turbo back exhaust and boost gauge.

    you can pick up a mbc from www.dawesdevices.com

    its cheap, effective, and wont boost creep and holds boost steady to redline. i used one for about 6 months w/ no problem before getting the "poor mans UTEC" unichip almost 18 months ago.
