Very interested in one of these at the moment as i need to up my boost. How easy was it to fit?

Its either that or an MBC.

Does anyone know of any other boost controllers?

Is this why you are getting problems then? Delivery on manual is slugged usually. (read harsh)

I run one.. and it works very well.

up and down with the twist of a small knob..

Mine sits on lowest setting the majority of the time.. ~9psi and ramps up to 23psi when I'm feeling like a bit of G-Loading.

Good bit of kit. (dbw only at this time or last i heard tho)

i have it but i have a feeling it works much better on DBW cars

Very usefull for when its wet along with the TC

Seems to interfere a bit with throttle response on mine - going to disconnect it to confirm

Geeba, can you set it to adjust above the boost level set in the ecu or only below? My car is running at 1 bar but ideally i'd like it set at 1.3 or 1.4? What engine code is yours?

I asked Jabba about this for my car and it can adjust boost up to the level determined by the remap, it won't get you any more over and above the remap/chip (I was trying to find the email from Jabba that explained this, but must have deleted it)

If thats correct then its a bit of a bummer, my car should be running more boost than it is and jabbasport are a fair trek away from me.

Why not just drop them an email? They responded to mine within a day, best to get the answer straight from the horses mouth[:)]

Well fella, that shouldn't be such a problem for you now as Bedrock VW's are now doing Jabba remaps with the recent install of their dyno.

You serious Cameron? Would be excellent as long as they aint charging too much for a simple adjustment.

Yep, completely serious mate, was told they'd be doing proper Jabba maps when I phoned up about their open day. You should give them a ring and see what they say, I'm sure they won't rip you off.

Bill

I couldnt use the N75, as it was overboosting all the time !! jabba sent me more chips and boost problems wasent solved, so had to remove N75. Car runs very smooth, i got my valve from boostvalve.com , the problems I have is that jabba needs to adjust the timing a bit lower and also lean it a bit, but all will be set when I install my FMIC

Remeber mine is an AGU engine, no map sensor, or it doesnt make any difference ???

Mine was fitted by Jabba when I was IHI'd Feb 2003

Did'nt know Mike had sorted the non dbw adjuster.. Golfy did'nt have a working version that much I know. [^]
