Hey mate, Im not sure i totally follwo you but ill try help, with the edit we can tune the car to have an increase in boost and obviously performance.

With the edit you keep the original tune inside the flasher so it can be returned to standard at any time you want it to be.

Re: Boost

From memory, there was a boost box for the XR6T, but didn't work overly well.
I doubt you would spend money on a flash box ( edit ) just to turn up the boost, a ( combined ) tune makes it run as it should, and cost factor would be marginal over winding the boost up and leaving it.....

RDP make an edit type product with an " adjustable " boost controller, a bit more pricey than the flasher unit, but has the 'knob' option in the cab to adjust boost on the fly...

I hope my answer was as clear as your question???

who would add to the boost without doing overal adjustments to the car through the tune? I hope that wasnt what ppl got from my comment when i said to use the edit. I meant exactly what Headache said, and hes right, your question wasnt all that clear

[QUOTE=GTP-330] who would add to the boost without doing overal adjustments to the car through the tune? QUOTE]

anyone who installs a boost controller to the majority of cars that allow such fitment... my E3 had 17psi running thru it via PRofec, with stock ecu, no chip or mappable ecu involved.. Yes, a remapped ecu would turn better results coupled with boost increase, but why bother when a $100 bleed valve ( for some ) will reap good power gains..

We as prospective Ford buyers are just unlucky that the pcm doesn't allow boost increases, or stereo removal etc etc without a strap on or reflash..

If only I could install an Apex-i to the Tornado in conjunction to the edit when it comes.. gear selective boost control, with adjustable rev limit and launch control... what a weapon........
