Plead read the FAQs and search.
There are lots of write ups on DIY and premade MBCs all over the forums (MK4 and 1.8T tech mainly)

i did. search turned back like 900 results.

FV-QR

From the 1.8T FAQ
Quote »

MBC – Manual Boost Controller. Often people want more boost from their car, and use a MBC. While MBC’s can get you more boost they will cause a jerky part throttle driving, and can cause over boost, often put the car into a limp mode. The way a MBC works is by bleeding off air from the wastegate control line. A wastegate is a mechanical flapper valve in the turbocharger that opens to allow exhaust gas to sneak around the turbo. By bleeding off air from the line, the wastegate opens less, more exhaust goes through the turbo, and you get more boost.
Great details on MBC here - http://www.boostvalve.com/tech/1.8T-DBW.html
And general Turbo/Wastegate details here http://www.streetracersonline....e.php

Get off your lazy ass and do your own research. All of your threads are lame. Please don't expect people to spoon feed you information like a child.
