What sensor are people planning on using? There are so many available, and I don't know which are better suited for automotive applications.

Most cars with forced induction in the US use the GM 3 bar map sensor available at all GM dealerships and many various places online. Part #16040749

Thanks.

Any ideas on boost control solenoids? I don't trust the stock one.

What do you have to do to get it to fit with the VPC? I'm guessing it doesnt have the same plug right??

The GM 3 bar is the proper one to use. I've used it on a few cars with success. I'm actually using the GM 3 bar now with my VPC. :)

Map Sensor

Why would you need to use a map sensor with the vpc? I may be asking a stupid question but if you don't know ask right?

Exactly.

It seems the Max output of the GM Map sensor is a bit off from the HKS Map sensor as well. I was never able to confirm this, but I've had to use the AFC to compensate a bit on various RPMs. This is still a bit backwards since the VPC is calculating off of pressure instead of just RPM...:rolleyes:
