    I just upgraded to v3full and would like to do boost by gear. I know they reccomend the ingersoll rand solenoid. Was curious if the aem tru boost solenoid would work? Cant find much info on it. Also do you think the truboost controller is better than doing the boost by gear in dsmlink?

    If you don't get an answer, might be better to post this on link forums.

    The driver in a 2g ECMLink ECU (I'm being specific because I've only looked at the 2g's chip spec sheetT) for the boost solenoid supports up to 2A of current, and that solenoid from google runs at a peak of .45A, so you should be fine current wise. The solenoid supports up to a 30hz duty cycle, but I think ECMLInk is limited to 16hz, so you won't have as great a control as you might with another controller.

    I appreciate the response but that is all Chinese to me. I am familiar with the AEM goes off of duty cycle and I assume dsmlink would be the same. Wouldnt the solenoid be what is physically controlling boost to raise, lower, and control creep/spike? I am not looking to buy a new controller but the dsmlink one is free since I have everything. If the AEM is better than ill just use that. I log ECUBoost and it matches my AEM, not sure if that has anything to do with our discussion. Your reply was totally something I wasn't expecting. HZ as in speed, 30hz refreshes faster than 16hz. So the controller could act quicker?

    Simple answer is the AEM solenoid will work the same as the Ingersoll. Should make no difference to Link.
