I will always go with electronic as I can tell if its been spiking. if you can save a bit its a worthwhile mod.

personally i have both, i use the MBC...

reason being is its more reliable and due to the way it works (ball and spring) they get weaker with age and due to that i have never seen one spike

take your pick really:guiness:

i never had a problem with a poowertek one,a cheap one i got wasmn't good at all buit get a poertek one and there are great and the bloke will even set it upon a flow bench so everyone i have had is so easy to fit as it just boosts to the boost i asked him to set it to!

you have to have a boost guage and a good one.if you want a good cheap boost guage get a tim 2 bar one as they are onl;y £20 odd and work well but i would have a boost guage even on a standard car as they are cheap but well worth having

think about it your standrad boost control is the same as a manual boost controller its just not adjustable as ALL A MBC DOES IN MAKE A RESTRICTON HOLE AND THE STANDARD BOOST CONTROL HAS A DRILL RESTRICTOR PUT OIN THE PIPEWORK
