but the twosrus mbc allows you to boost higher than 12 right?
Yes it does. Buy the Two'sRus one and save yourself the headache. Saving a few bucks isn't worth the danger, especially for a piece as critical as the boost controller.

The ebay controller will probably work just fine. But...if it ever malfunctions, or if you need any help in setting it up, or if it ever needs service, you'll wish you had spent $50 for the twosrus.

BTW, the CT26 will make about 20 psi with no boost control at all. But there is little, if any, power gained above about 15 psi.

I never said I was running a CT26 :evillaugh:.
I just need to test my system and am not keeping it in the car for long. Eventually I will go back to some sort of EBC.

Thanks for your responses

I remember making a MBC w/ the online supplied information for my old turbo civic...well, first of all, the car was leaking boost...and the MBC didn't help much as well, nor I recalling seeing boost increase in the boost gauge. So, I decided to give my girlfriend's brother's 91 Alltrac a try. He said he felt little differences, but not by much. So, we discarded the home made attempt, and he settled for a Twosrus MBC.

I've had two eBay MBCs fail...they both had to be backed out extremely far to run 11 or 12 psi, which ended up resulting in the adjustment screw popping out. If you don't ever want to run low boost it should be fine...different eBay MBCs will have different results, too.

My next boost controller will be the twos r' us version. :)

i agree with these guys...i wasted just about $50 on two different versions of the ebay MBC + shipping. the first one only got me to 9 psi and the second one was similar to the one you linked to...same story...except only about 8.5 psi

i would go with the tworus. have had zero problems with mine since i got it. have ran anywhere from 8psi to 17psi. for me $30 savings (twosrus comes with hoses and other hardware) isnt worth it buying on ebay something so important.
