I'm looking at this mod from electrodyne. I was wondering if anyone has used it and can say whether or not it is a good purchase. Would it be better than chipping the car? And could I chip with the boost control installed also?
To check out this mod goto:

...than just turning up the boost.
It's been done and the AW'er who did it sold it in favor of a chip. For more, run a search for "rbarna BCS."

...a severe knock condition occurs. If you use a boost controller, the ECU only has one "knock defense" to protect your connecting rods (reducing timing advance).
Any 1bar chip will retain the ECUs ability to reduce both boost and timing advance if severe knock is experienced.
Peace of Mind is worth an extra ~$200, don't you think?
