Jim, Do you use APC for both boost control and knock detection? Do you have info about what to grab to implement the system, and the hookup info. I was thinking it would be a good way to do my boost control in my car. The bertram sight is dead, and that seems to be the link everyone points to for apc info.
Thanks,Brian

Here is a good one on modifying boost levels,

Also,

This one shows how some guy put one in his volvo, he
also used the ignition side of it,

Here's some theory on the system,

And for wiring,

For the basic knock sysem, just grab the box, connector, wire to the knock sensor, and knock sensor. Real easy to get out. I'm just using it for knock, I didn't feel like screwing with it to make it control 20 psi of boost.

Also look at this thingy. http://www3.sympatico.ca/borism/

Thanks for the info Jim.

What are you using for boost control.

Strictly wastegate spring, or a bleeder, or a high relief regulator on the upper wastegate chamber?
