Wondering if anyone has tried this boost controller out. I've spoken with an MSD tech a while ago and he spilled the beans about having problems with the solenoid and sourcing a new supplier, so I didn't bite at the time. I've been using a Profec-B digital controller and it holds the boost very well in my application, with a single turbo but no ramping capabilities.
My launch is currently "controlled" by the fact that my converter it tight so I can't launch with full boost. This is duplicating the ramp of a boost controller, but it'll be pretty hard to adjust in the future when more power comes into the equation.
Any input about this controller or others is appreciated.

I hadn't seen this controller before.

I did contact Bill and he was quite helpful.

I placed a post in the turbo section about the BS3 and the AMS unit since I've got an old Accel DFI 6 and am looking to upgrade for next season. I was wondering if BS3 alone is fine or is it worth the $ to go with the AMS unit as well? http://yellowbullet.com/v-web/bulletin/bb/viewtopic.php?t=3825

Thanks for the input.

Absolutely...
I'm tempted to try the MSD product. I can tell from my old litterature of their unit vs. the updated info that they've figured out how to control boost. It appears as though they've also sorted out their PWM solenoid supplier. The price point is right and it offers PWM with the ability to adjust PID parameters as well. I don't see a fundamental difference between the AMS unit and the MSD unit, other than the AMS piece would be ideal for a bike.

I guess my point is that either one will work well for my application. It just comes down to $$. I'll finally be upgrading my production heads this year, so every penny counts right now.

Running knobs and solenoids sounds adventurous!
