    have been trying to find an electronic boost controller for the 8L can only find manual ones.
    anyone fitted an EBC?
    if so which ones best to go for?

    First question is why?

    There is no EBC for the '8L' as they universal but having run both EBC and MBC in the past for various reasons there is no advantage to running either as N75 control is more than capable...

    Only time an EBC would be advisable is if you are running big turbo in a FWD A3 and then you would use something like an Apexi using the gear limit control to get the power to the ground more effectively

    Have used MBC's in the past to cap boost spikes on dodgy maps and the like but thats more a sticky plaster than a fix...

    If you plan to try and use one to get more boost than you currently have then this will most likely end in the ECU going to limp mode..
