Look into GFB . I love mine. Was looking into the EVC S, but decided on this at the last minute because the awesome reviews.

The only thing that kept me away from the GFB (and its not a big deal), is that fact you need to run a hose into the cabin directly to the controller.

This weekend I'm putting in a couple of catch cans for the PCV hoses, and then look into getting a small air oil separator for the breather hoses. The one night I lifted the intake manifold to see a bunch of oil dripping from it was enough to drive me crazy.

Plus, I've got an oil cooler fan ordered. I might as well get as much done as I can while the bumper is off. I can't fully enjoy my car until I get this stuff done.

I had some issues with oil lines at the start but now I have 0 leaks. How are your PCV hoses running? Reason I ask is the way Sasha at Boosted Performance does his kit I have literally no oil from the pcv system entering the air. If I pull the boost tubes there is some oil which is expected but its not enough to even see a hint of blue from the exhaust so I dont worry about it.

If I lived any further south I would have to rethink my cooling situation myself. The car regularly idled at 220F oil temp, got it up to 248F sitting in traffic with the AC going. But up here I rarely break the 220F point.

OK I got it narrowed down to

eBoost2 60mm Black

or the new

SCG-1 Solenoid Boost Controller Gauge

I know the innovate one is new and Jason is the only one who said he has it but has not really had seat time with it. Has any +'s and -'s with these? Anything you dont like about them?

I see the turbosmart has many more features and to be honest most I wont use, it would be cool to get the shifting setup with it but I dont know of any way to set up the wiring to make this happen with our car. I would need some sort of digital to analog converter to condition the signal for the gauge. Has anyone ever done anything like this?

I do like the Innovate and its ability to watch the afrs to control leaning out with the boost, and I do like how it shows the duty cycle of the wastegate right on the gauge, lets you know a little bit more insight to what its trying to do, and as a tuner it will help see what is really happening when these cars start to drop boost at the upper rpms.

I have also been thinking about just getting a cheaper mechanical one for the mean time. I ordered Mr. Galeforces gauge pod and have a few weeks of waiting before I get one, so in the mean time ill either, just mount the gauge directly to my stock pillar, run wastegate pressure, or install a manual boost controller. Nice thing about the manual is its very easy to install since everything is already there. Just plug it in and go.

I know Sasha will be installing one soon, also TonyHTX has a SCG-1 that he's been using for a while, S.O.S. - Signaled Out Sedan I would message him.

I just checked and I can get one through one of our suppliers we use for diesel tuning, so im going to go that route and give it a shot.

I just got done working on it today. So far it's ok, but we'll see how long it will last. The Godspeed cans were modified so one connector has a longer tube attached with holes drilled. Then I used left over RTV to improve the seals. I've since trimmed the hoses and reorganized it, so it's looking better, and it doesn't compress itself under vacuum as badly. Here's a post and pic before the trimming:
DIY: Dual Catch Cans with Air/Oil Separators... On the CHEAP!

So far I'm still looking at the TurboSmart EBC since it's pretty small, and I think I can integrate it to the dash. I would have to route a hose into the cabin as well, but I plan to tee it to the boost gauge by moving the sensor inside the cabin as well. The cubby holder will be removed until I get around to getting something custom fabbed.

Also, the relay box on the driver side near the headlight is pretty empty. So I plan to make room for the wastegate solenoid and fan relay. Hopefully it'll keep things "cool" instead of being fully exposed to the heat in the bay.
