It is possible to up the boost with out a edit. I was thinking of using
a manual boost controller to by pass the electric boost selinoid.
And at what boost does the computer see it at being overboost.

Thanks for any input

NO... uLL lose power they only tolerate something like 1PSI extra without it losing power... just get a better air filter in der and a Phoon snorkle thing behind the head light.. or save up and get an edid flashtune done to it..

yeah they went through trying ways around the ECU when they first came out, before the edit.
The ECU is too smart.
CAPA developed a "boost box" which allowed them to do it, kept the ECU thinking everything was okay, but then the Edit came out and it became obsolete.
