I just bought a MBC (manual boost Controller) for my evo 9 mr and was wondering what is the max psi I can run with out running out of fuel(fuel cut), or breaking something.
Thanks :dsm:

I've never worked on a IX, but I ran 20psi in stock form with no problems. If you do try higher, the worst that's going to happen is fuel cut but you won't break anything. I've tried 22psi, but it knocks a little between 4500-5500 RPM's on 91 octane.

2.0 bar and nothing has gone boom? did you already hook up the MBC and adjust it? Or was the 2bar in stock form?

My bad that was a error.
The stock boost gauge reads like 1.3 bar.
Can anyone give like a comparison table between psi and bar.
I installed the MBC but I want it set to the max but first I need to know how to read the bar gauge.
Should I buy a auto meter gauge to be more acurate, am I right?
:eek: :confused:

http://www.google.com/search?hl=en&lr=&q=1+bar+in+psi

just go by that, 1 bar=14.5 psi.

so, (heres the gruling hard mathmatical part) .1 bar= 1.45 psi

and then, you have to add:eek:

formula? its simple ratios...

also, if you right click on any link and select open in new window, it opens with the correct url...
