Hi all , Just got my self a 1.8 turbo 1998 passat after owning a 200 sx nissan 2.0turbo for 3 years its a bit sluggish :(. I used to use a MBC (manual boost controller) on my nissan to raise the boost . Can I still use this and set it to 1.0 bar on the Passat with the aid of a boost gauge, or will this cause problems. I carnt afford to purchase a chip this time of the year and wish for a bit more power so is it still the case of inserting it between the actuator piping and do I need to disable any built in electronic boost controllers ???

Any help please . I know I should really buy the chip but for time been I need a cheaper option.

P.S what is a CEL everyone keeps on about :)
