As Tuca said - while the Unichip can control boost, the factory boost control solenoids (which the Unichip and incidentally the UTEC use) are not the best at achieving full boost with rocket quickness.

One can't beat an ball and spring MBC or EBC for that.

Many people run a Unichip or UTEC but leave the boost control up to a ball and spring MBC or EBC...

EBC = Electronic Boost Control

Even with an MBC or EBC controlling boost, the Unichip is able to control ignition advance, fuel curve, and in TurboXS' case eliminate the 17psi fuel cut...

On the UTEC, can u set the default boost at something low like 9 PSI for everyday driving, and use a EBC to turn it up to like 16? Also, why don't people do this to put less stress on their motors?
