If you are running a Link ECU and have a 3 port boost solenoid, like a Mac here, there is no reason to not let the ECU do its job. If, on the other hand, you are running a stock ECU, then perhaps a stand-alone boost controller is a good idea.

Time for another roundup! This time we look back at April and look forward to some of the cool cars we'll be working on in May. We had new powerboard leaders in both 4WD and 2WD. In 2WD we had this awesome Supra in; we hope to see this car again once the slight misfire is fixed: In 4WD we had an awesome Evo 9; you can read all about the car in this post. We also had a PS13 drift car in for a Link ECU and mapping session. This car is an awesome colour and made decent power, thanks to...
