Hey i was just wondering if the ebay boost controllers are worth it. i dont want to blow my engine using one. i know i have to get a boost gauge to make sure im not boosting to much. so are they worth getting?

I got one, as a backup (while waiting on another BC). Cost $12 shipped... Since I did get another one, this one's a spare. Not going to use it and it looks decent-enuff, but pretty much something that you can probably have made yourself. Lemme know and I'll let ya have it for a couple $$ less that on Ebay (my loss your gain ;-)

I bought one... it certainly wasn't as well fabricated as my Joe P MBC. But it seemed to work fine.

mine leaked
but it worked for like 2 weeks so it caused me alot of headaches when it started to leak, because i did not know where the leak was coming from, i have since gotten a hallman and it works way better and is very very precise.

I bought one for around $25... and you truly get what you pay for. Mine spikes like crazy if you tighten it too much and you have to get out, pop the hood, and loosen it a fraction of a twist to get the right PSI you're looking for.

I'll find a picture of the MBC I got from ebay and post it...(It came from Canada)


(Not saying it's this one...but it looks identical to the one I purchased seen after this first image)




and here is mine.

Ha Ha! Wow! That is EXACTLY what mine looked like... In mine the threads for the bolt in the housing were not precisely fabed so I had to wrench on the bolt one turn at a time to thread it in properly. Then it worked like a charm. :)
