Yeah, but probably not enough air to make much of a difference.

-Sorry for the bump, but i was wondering if there was any updates to anyone who has tried this? Is it still working, etc! I'm running a turbo xs dual stage boost controller, currently at 13lbs in 5th gear. I want to run 16lbs of boost.
-Reading thru this thread, it seems like an economical way of getting rid of fuel cut, but I'm still a little skeptic as i dont want to hurt or break anything.

These work from what I've read from others. It should be fine as long as you don't up the boost too much.

-Well all i'm looking for is 2-3 more pounds of boost. As i've heard the td04 is efficient up to 16lbs.
-It would be nice to see a DIY write-up on this but i'll go back thru and read it again to make sure i get things right.

-So far so good, no fuel cut. But the real test for me is 5th gear on the freeway. AFR's still look good on the wideband, high 11's and low 12's.
-I'm going to be moving to San Bernardino CA. tomorrow so I'll post here what happens, if anything, once I get there.

i don't think napa or an auto parts store would stock a MBC. there's a couple DIY threads on here about how to make one out of parts from home depot. Search home made manual boost controller or DIY manual boost controller.

To up your boost past the stock boost lvl you will need a MBC, but you will only need the FCD if you are going past 13PSI i think

Caveman, you should paint the yellow caps the same red you painted your other accents. I think it will look real nice!

Could one not use a check valve (to allow vacuume to get to the FCD) in parallel with a MBC backed down so the FCD sees 10 PSI but you are boosting 15 PSI? The check valve would block the boost.

I'm sure you could do something, but tuning and configuring them would be kind of difficult I think.

Yeah, it's like all the power is taken away. It's pretty noticable.
