    your MAF dependant ECU factors in the recirculating charge into the fuelling equation and can run way off if you vent the charge to atmosphere.
    if you want to run any other kind of controller without the ECU "spazzing out" diconnect the N75 but leave the electrical connection plugged in.

    but honestly, hiking boost, tricking the N75, cranking wastegates etc etc withithout an appropriate remap will leave you lean and kill your turbo or engine or both eventually.

    Get it sorted before you think about modding it!

    Oh, drew a blank with finding the details of the guy I bought mine from in Anglesey.

    I wouldnt be putting a manual boost controller anywhere near an S4 engine...

    Firstly the ecu will instantly cut the fuel if you boost any more than stock anyway.
    Secondly, if it cant control the boost curve the way it wants to, you'll end up in limp mode.
    Thirdly, if you do get it wrong and put some speed holes in the pistons or blow the turbos, its a very expensive fix!

    I run a mbc parallel only to stop boost and limp mode until fueling and remap is done hopefully in the next few weeks i run low boost just for peace of mind really . But yeh just running a mbc to over boost is not a good idea
