How many of you guys use a manual boost controler? My bud did a fpp stage 1 and he wants to add a boost controler now. Any reccomendations in a good one or advise?

I did use a manual boost controller. One of the bleeding style.

Dont do it. You get what you pay for.

Best manual controller is the hall man pro. Just make sure to remove the check ball and spring to avoid boost spikes.

AEM TruBoost. I heard lots of warnings about the manual controllers my first year w my FPP kit. Threw one of these on and could not have been happier. Ran mine up to 9+pounds with race fuel for hill climb drags last year. Smiles all the way.

I use a manual controller as a bleed valve right up on my counsel Brent. Nothing wrong with a manual boost controller if you know what you're doing with it and how it works.

I think Turbosmart sells them with a "t" in the line now too, allowing just one hose up to the counsel to adjust it. I made my own and used a "t" with a jet on the turbo side, ran a line to the dash, removed the ball and spring, and just plugged one side of the valve. It just bleeds pressure from the wastegate.

So I just run 4.5 lbs on the wastegate and can go up from there. I also put a valve in front of the controller prior to the controller to turn it off.

I Have a forge boost controller. All I have ever run and never had one problem with it freezing. I ride mountain powder almost everyride. Key I think is where it's mounted to keep from freezing up.

I have been running a turbo smart manual controller with no issues for a while now too. Ball and spring removed, I can send pics if needed as to mounting location. Pm if needed.

I have also been running a turbo smart boost tee, second year( if you call this a season), no issues, but mounted behind the windshield, no deep snow, trails only. If i was gonna run bigger boost, I'd go with a pro- logger.
