I will try to make this quick. I had a Split Second BCS in my car. I wanted a little more power after awhile, so a friend gave me a TurboXS 2 stage manual boost controller. Not having a boost gauge I left the BCS installed and used it to adjust the boost up higher than the BCS would give, just by a little guess work. I just removed the factory electric waste gate control valve completely. Then I did get a boost gauge and found I was running 17 psi. The car ran great, good power. Then when I removed the Split Second BCS, thinking I no longer needed it, power went back to stock, even with the TurboXS valve installed, and I got the cell light which I never got before. Up until the removal of the BCS, I have been running the car like this for 7 months. Now for the questions.
What signal was the Split Second BCS modifying to allow the motor to run such high boost with good power? Also I noticed that I could build around 14 psi or so at like 2500 rpm with no power, then where the Split Second BCS's power would kick in normaly ( 3000 or so), the car would just take off, even though boost pressure would still be the same.
Any one have any info on this. I think there might be an economical power gain here I just need some more info.
