    You do not need a boost controller on your car (with or without a tune....esp not without a tune) and a turbo timer is useless because it doesn't do anything except waste gas.

    What turbo? I haven't seen any smaller oil only cooled WRX flanged turbos in years.

    And you don't need to be playing with boost levels (it's bad juju). The tuner can do that with whatever software he is tuning you with.

    understand

    yeah i get that but all we are using the stand alone for is remaping and louie said i should get one and since i got money to burn i figured why not. it cant hurt to put one on so that i can run low boost on the street and turn it up at the track. i wont need to bring my computer with me. trust me i am not going to run 25psi or higher on the street i will probably run like 18

    You will have to run a different map for the different boost settings because your boost curve will be different and on the lower boost setting you will be running rich. Most turbos now have a water jacket surrounding the bearings to help keep the turbo cooler and prevent coking.

    thanks

    yeah he did mention something about that. see i will only be going to the track once a week so i will leave it at the setting for street and then when we roll up to the track i can play with it. Thats pretty much what the whole night is set up for is test and tune. I got faith in him he wouldnt be ASE certified if he didnt know what he was doing.

    If you want to run two different boost levels TurboXS has a 2 stage bcs that works pretty well. Though you will have to lug around the laptop to change maps.

    On a side note my friends home base is Fort Hood though he is in Iraq right now. Killeen is huge now couldn't believe how much it expanded since the last time I went to visit down there.

    You can't just crank up the boost. You have to use a completely different tune. The ECU won't automatically accommodate for low street boost and then higher track boost. You need 2 different tunes and you'll need to be able to switch between them.

    And as I said, you won't need a boost controller to change boost levels. Getting a good one will allow you to hold boost a little better...but there are cheaper/better things that will do that (3 port boost control solenoid). And oil only cooled FP turbos haven't been made since 2004ish.

    certified vs. shade tree

    okay to the woman who is hell bent on shutting down the idea of a boost control. I am about 100% sure that you are not certified in all 50 states as a mechanic right? okay so leave the maintenance up to the trained professionals. He knows what he is doing and he knows what to put on it. I am pretty sure that since he's built about 15 cars in the past to include 2 different sti's it will be just fine. We are also debating an econ shut off valve you got something to argue about that too?
