I'm looking at getting an Apexi AVCR elec boost controller to replace the GFB valve boost controller ive got on it at the moment.

Has anyone used or know someone thats using one?

No but the e boost controler from Turbosmart is very programable, can run different boost setting in each gear..Three preset settings etc....

yeah for the eboost is cheaper, eboost2 is not cheap, the best price I could find in OZ was 799 which is F**k rediculous, got one from the US for 450 US. Haven't used it yet but it has more features than I can comprehend. You can fit lights to it that activate at set boost pressures, its a bit ricey but hey, could be handy, has good safety overboost built in.

Why dont you guys use your ECU to control your boost?

What is the benefit of an Eboost over a full ECU?

My Wolf controlled my boost levels fine in the EB and I plan to do the same through the haltech in my AU. Until then I just bought a T piece controller for $100.

My wolfs a V3 so it doesnt run a boost solenoid. Elec boost controllers are awesome... the Apexi AVCR lets you program boost at any revs in any gear and at any throttle position. So you could have it hold the boost to 6psi for anything under half throttle and under 3000 rpm, then give it full throt and have it hit your max boost instantly.

the GFB manual boost controller I have isnt too bad, it holds the wgate shut until 10psi ( spring rate ) where as without it the w'gate starts to open at 6psi then snaps fully open at 10psi

EBC reviews and comments, a lot of people seem to give the AVC-R a big thumbs up only downside seems to be the $$$ compared to some cheaper options, but have a lot less options.

Can also get Apexi AVC-R shipped for $630 form sponsors section on above site not sure what prices you have found so far.

Yea I have electronic controlers on mine wired through Haltech...
You can stage it through gears or speed related...
Mines just variable with no data loging...Well without laptop...But I don't need it...

The E boost can be staged to have different boost in each gear etc...There are heaps of other features like n20 opperation etc... Ring around they are cheaper....
