I've noticed some people say the Apex AVC-R should not be used w/ a single turbo, why is this? Do they fail? I'm trying to convince a friend of mine to get a MBC... Anyone know if one MBC is better than another?

Ack sry its i the wrong section.

TIA

I had an AVC-R on my car. It worked well at BPU, but sucked when I went single. It allowed major boost spikes. I switched to the HKS EVC-EZ and it has worked perfectly. If your friend wants an EBC, this is the one to get.

I'm the one going single with the AVC-R. I was thinking that I wanted gear-based-control to try and get traction in the lower gears. I'm going with a small single, an SP60, so it wont be generating too much boost. I'm not upgrading the fuel system, so I am also ordered an HKS GT Wastegate so that I can set the boost lower to prevent me from running too much boost and consequently blowing my engine . Let me know what you guys think given these details. Thanks!

I agree with the King on this one.
Running high boost MBC, the Street EBC.
So far my EVC-EZ is holding up. When it fails I will go to a MBC.

Argh! What is it about the AVC-R that isnt good for the single? I understand its a lot of gadget. I plan on running one boost setting all the time, so I dont really want the remote switch on the profec-b.

In theory, the AVC-R sounds great. I can set the boost level lower in lower gears to try and keep wheelspin down. Sounds good to me... what is the hidden print?
