Megasquirt Boost Controller

Post by sxtdude » Sat Nov 08, 2008 1:10 am

Hey I was just curious if anybody has used the boost controller option for megasquirt. If so were you happy with it or would you recommend another boost controller. I would like to have everything in one package but also want a reliable unit.

External ones work better as of yet. Also, keep in mind that anything using PWM will introduce noise on to the board, and make any grounding or crosstalk problems that much worse.

This probably goes more into forced induction but would you recommend a manual or electronic?

I prefer electronic, simply because you can do more with them, such as speeding up spool by keeping the WG closed later, and multi-stage boost control is easier.
