Congrats on the build, looks great!

Love Ross' maps as well- so smooth.

Regarding the boost controller, remember the 6 settings are different presets, so you can tailor the boost pressure for each of these presets.

I've got the same one fitted on my ute now (thanks big bear). If you want, drop me a pm with your number and we can chat about it.

Ross set up the boost controller for me so that it raises progressively from setting 1 (0.6Bar) to setting 6 (1.03Bar).
At the Kempton meet and greet it did the same, but I managed to reset it and all was happy! Was happy all the way till my second last run on Sunday when it overshot the max boost that was set on the controller. I did the same to try reset it again to run like Ross set it... But now it reaches 0.98Bar on setting 1 and keeps overboosting on all the other settings.

Ok so he must have wired the input to toggle between maps when a hop switch or something similar is activated.

Strange that it's overshooting the max boost. That is setup once and is active for all the presets.

Maybe a wiring issue somewhere.

You've got 4wd, no need to ramp the boost. I vote 1bar from the get go [emoji1][emoji106]

No... It is straight setting 1 to 6 when you manually go through them. No input is wired in.
I use setting 1 for every day, and flick to 6 when I spot something interesting on the road.
Donno why it keeps doing it though?? Maybe I switch between settings too often?? :lol:

Check what the duty cycle is set to for each of the presets- that's what will determine the boost.

Maybe you were goofed on tyre smoke and burnt fuel and then set all the presets to WRX mode [emoji1]
