A grainger valve is a pressure-variable restrictor used in industrial compressed air applications. I haven't tried this personally, but here are some links:decooper said:Oolan,
Thanks for the advice. The T-66 sounds great! I'm looking at some of the turbos from Innovative myself. Can you tell me about the Grainger valve if you don't mind? Innacuracy is not reasonable with what I'm looking for.
No "gizmos" or "gadgets."

I have an AVC-R, and I'm thinking of adding a MBC inline with it (set to 15 psi or so) for faster spoolup. Heck, for $20-30, it's worth a try...decooper said:Oolan
Very specific advice-thanks for the links and follow-up.I'll keep this in mind.
I am probably looking for a great electronic controller as opposed to a solution like this. Lord knows this is as simple and direct a solution as you could hope for.
The AVC-R won't go to 100% duty cycle, it will only go to 90% duty cycle. And it will do that only if you set it up to feed back; otherwise it will go to a fixed duty cycle based on engine RPM.Grant said:Oolan, are you saying that the AVC-R doesn't keep the solenoid shut before the turbo spools? Thats pretty poor for such an expensive EBC. It doesn't vary the duty cycle based on boost at all?
