Im curious why turbo mini builds tend to use bleed valves for boost adjustment? Iv owened alot of jap turbo stuff and always used hks evc boost controllers as the boost controll is far more acurate and stable.

Looking like its going to be a wicked build though.

Because they're ridiculously expensive for what they are. All my evo's had their boost controlled by the ECU. Much better control.

Ecu control is the same as a boost controller so should be acurate as its electronically monitered. I was on about manual bleed valves though dude, i guess its because alot of minis run turbos on carb not injected engines with ecu’s either way it doesnt matter, just wondered was all.
As for hks evc being expensive think the most i ever paid was about £60 or so, i used to buy alot of my stuff/parts from the yahoo japanese auction site (jdm version of ebay).

Sorry for steering off topic. Back to the build 😁
