    no experience thus far
    i guess they are irregular to a point
    ie: allow 10psi, then 12 psi etc

    Does the actuator have a threaded end? Is it bolted to the bracket or rivots?

    If its bolted, just put washers in between the actuator and teh bracket, it will increase boost.

    Same goes for a threaded rod, just shorten it and stretch it onto the flapper. This will also increase boost.

    I have a TurboXS MBC, its the high performance one, I'll sell it to you very cheap ;)

    mine has no threaded rod, it is bolted to the compressor housing with these 8mm head size bolts

    how much for the MBC and how did you like it?

    It works well. Prolly $20 shipped.

    I just like the EBC better, I can change on the fly inside the car. This way I can drive around at a low setting and try to conserve gas as much as possible, then if I need a lil extra burst to beat someones ass, I just hold a button down and 6psi becomes 10. :D

    You can try just spacing the actuator from the bracket, this will raise boost. Try 1 washer first then move up to 2 and 3...etc....

    eh, the bolts are really small and not something i want to mess with...
    and they are a huge pain in the ass to get to as well...

    so how much was your EBC?

    I prefer the EBC so I can keep the boost low under normal conditions and hit a button and have a high mode.

    The MBC works fine though. I had no issues using it on my Matrix.
