So I recently bought a 97 TT and it came with an AVCR unit installed I just bought a Tru boost and I planned to swap it out. Is the AVCR any good? Despite its age is it better than the TRU boost?

I loved my Apexi AVC-R back in the early 2000's. It's still great. However almost everyone these days uses the integrated boost control found in standalone ECU's (Motec, ProEFI, AEM, Syvecs.... etc).

Im still running stock ECU probably wont upgrade any time soon. Just wondering which would be better.

Same here, that thing was pretty advanced for it's time a d never let me down. Just recently let it go for Profec-b but will eventually be going standalone. Haven't used a tru-boost but I'll be installing one in another car this weekend.

I still have an AVC-R in mine, though I literally just bought a Haltech Elite 2500, so it will be coming out. Had it since the early days, and it's been rock-damn-solid. Once tuned to your wastegate and solenoid, it's perfect. Boost zips right up to your setpoint, and just nails there. Paired with the Apexi Super-AFC as a piggy-back, it was (still is !) a great setup for BPU.
