    Hi I searched the forums and Google, I don' understand how a boost controller works, my friend sent me this photo today probably to say dsm's are junk or w/even he's a Mustang guy, and it got me thinking how do these work and can I install on on my 1998 gst and make it a 12 second car? Will my car beat a 01 Mustang gt if side by side at highway speeds? I' not talking about speeding but like going 45 in a 65 then flooring it and letting off at 70 mph

    A boost controller is a device to raise boost pressure. No you cant get a 12 sec car with a boost controller and a tune. Read up and you will understand. No you will likely not beat a mustang gt in a roll race.

    Thanks, is a boost controller ok on a stock car? And thanks for clarifyig that it won' make a 12 second car, on the bright side at least front wheel drive seems to me to be safer I like dsms even if they weren' fast

    I've always said mustang GTs are only good for one thing.. sounding good.

    Problem is I've been saying it so long I'm starting to eat my words with the new 5.0s. LOL I can still walk ones with bolt ons but anything serious and I'm in trouble.


    If you googled it and you didn't understand.. trying googling how a boost controller works, a ball and spring style boost controller. You may have been getting confused because there are several different kinds.

    I use the old school $15 nxs MBC and it works great. I was able to spike up to 16-18 psi on a t25 depending on the day. And smoke mustangs in my damn auto fwd just not on the highway with that little turbo.

    Op you need to read through the FAQs and upgrade paths. You're asking rudimentary questions which lead me to believe you're going to be modifying the GST in the future and you need a buffer course on forced induction before you start asking common questions. We know you're excited over your first 4g but there's a plethora of dsm specific information out there if you take a few minutes to look. When you google search follow it by DSM. Maintenance first grasshopper.

    A boost controller is simply an air pressure regulator, with feedback from the intake tract. And yes Mustangs are bloated and slow as balls.

    Yes but there are limitations. Maintenance first mods second. I wouldn't touch a thing until you learn more. The very nature of your question leads me to believe you have lots to learn first. Most things are straightforward but unless you're already mechanically inclined there will be a steep steep learning curve. Even if you are a seasoned mechanic there is a lot to learn if you want to modify.

    I am a mechanic, I've worked on turbo 6.0s, turbo jettisoned ect for friends, but I don' know about tuning boost ect I have lots to learn is correct, the car is a gift for my husband he doesn' know it' in our garage yet, I'm trying to fix it up for him as a surprise (he's been sick two years hoping to get him fixed up) and I want it to be fast, he's not a nutcase LOL but likes to roll off a light when there's another interesting car or truck LOL, if anyone here knows him please don' tell him as its a secret surprise!

    You're in abetter place then. For general auto you already know about maintenane, hoses, belts etc. Please seek out the faqs and writeup pages, read up a little and then come back.
