Default Manual boost controllers

I've made a small batch of manual boost controllers, pictured below. I've been using a slightly less refined version for the past few months and it's worked flawlessly. This is the Mk2 as it were, all made from high quality 1/8" BSP fittings.



Price is 16 + 1.50 P&P, buying new, you won't get anything of comparable quality.

PM me for further details.

Default Order MBC

Hi Chris,

I would like to order a MBC. Is shipping to the Netherlands a problem?

Could you also advice on a turbo pressure gauge to install the MBC?

Greetings,

Ferdinand

Hi, sorry I stopped making these a while ago, there are plenty available on ebay and the likes now.

I've had mine on my car for 9 years now, no explosions yet Just stay within instructions of the guide which is based on well tried and tested experience from many red block owners.
