View Full Version : easiest programmable electronic boost controller

08-11-2002, 10:38 PM
I've looked at all the posts, none talk about programming. Any of you know which one is the easiest to program (meaning no full blast runs to program the boost controller).

Right now I'm looking at the catalogs of Greddy and HKS. I just want your opinions.

Easiest is the HKS EVC EZ - it's called EZ for a reason http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif. It's just a knob - turn it for more boost.

The Greddy Profec B is also a solid boost controller that's easy to use. It's hard to beat it.

I only have experience with mine, but it was pretty easy to figure out. (I only had problems initially because I had some bad boost leaks)

I have a Blitz DSBC. No full blast runs or programming. Just adjust your ratios and turn the knob. Pretty easy - and it's nice having more settings than high/low.

i had a Blitz SSBC (Super Street Boost Controller) installed on my last car, it is prettly easy to install and set up, even though it is a little old, it is just like the Greddy Profec B, it has gain/overboost adjustment, and in-car high/low switch and volume controlls to set the bosst for high and low individually. but can't handle more than about 19 psi. but is the size of a turbo timer with a pressure box to be put inside or in the engine bay, and a solenoid and wire harness etc..

now if i can just get my CA18DET into my current car i can hook it up.

I have the Blitz SSBC also and if you have half a brain you can use it holds boost really well and no complex settings like an avc-r. Just straigt forward boost conroll

Everyone seems to think that the AVC-R is complex. I disagree. It is a little bit more complex if you want a boost controller to just set and forget. But it is actually quite basic for that purpose too. Basically it is as complex as you want it to be.

I installed mine on Thursday and it took me all of 5 minutes and 3 blasts through 1st and 2nd gear to get it set to stable boost. The first setting I used caused a little bit of excess lag cause the duty was too low. I over corrected and got a little boost spike. Then on the third setting it went straight into self learn mode and now the boost is rock solid. So for 5 minutes work and a couple of 55mph runs the AVC-R can do what most other "simple" boost controlers can.

I agree this is definitely more work than normal but for me and the others that use it, it is the many extra features that make this boost controller our choice. I am not knocking any other boost controller, I just think that people should not dismiss the AVC-R because it is "complex"

Just my $0.02. Peace

"Super Street Boost Controller"



I think you mean "Single Solenoid Boost Controller." http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/wink.gif

i am sure thats what my box says, either that or i read that soemwhere, but i amy be wrong http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif i'll check it when i get home

Now that I think about it, I think they also named it "Street Spec" or something like that. I'm not sure why... It's also called the Single SBC as well.

08-12-2002, 02:54 PM
I have the SBC-iD and counting the fact that its a dual solenoid boost controller makes it very responsive with no boost lags/spikes, (not that I've expierenced yet so far) I'm very happy with mine, and I highly recommend it.

The box says "Street Spec Boost Controller" -- I have one sitting in my garage right now http://forums.freshalloy.com/ubbthreads/images/icons/smile.gif

So what are asad's secret plans. You are such a big help to the boards, but you dont talk about your plans for your s13. Just wondering.

08-12-2002, 11:05 PM
Hey Thanks for all the replies. I'm most likely to go with the Profec B. The price you can't beat as far as electronic boost controllers. Besides I did not want all the extras the others have. I just wanted something close to the manual boost controllers only with quicker spool up time.

i agree with beef.

blitz dsbc.
i 5 different setting
stock, 9 psi, 10psi, 12psi, and 15psi for when i get my fmic installed.

adjust it accordingly to weather (heat) and how i'm feeling. right now stock is more then plenty since i get too throttle happy with high boost

"i 5 different setting

Generally How much would the price be for one of those?


08-13-2002, 12:42 AM
I've posted my own plans in the past. In short, turbo KA.

i don't know if blitz make them anymore, since the id series came out. they used to cost about $400 - $450. i know the last ones that came out had the silver casing and blue lcd. i do see them on some www shops though
