Exclamation Which "Boost Fooler" do you run?

Im looking at 2 different types

1. The electronic type that plugs in and works with the MAP sensor

2. The mechanical type that regulates what the MAP sees mechanically.

Which type do you run and why?

Advantages or disadvantages to either type?

Price is NOT an issue, reliability and system integrity are!

I looked at two different ones, the itp one and one that i found off of ebay i think i searched boost relief valve. i ended up going with the ebay one because it is mechanical just as the itp one is but it has two connections one on either side of the valve so that i could hook up my boost gauge and it would tell me my actual boost or i could go to the other side and see the boost that the map sensor is seeing. it was also relatively cheap, i think around fifty bucks or so

You set the regulator to 21 to 23 psi..( it mounts in-line on the Map sensor hose).Flow towards the Map sensor.Very simple set-up
It keeps the computer from seeing more than 21 to 23 psi of boost.
