Thought I'd try the eBay cheapie first at a tenner. Waste of time, didn't control boost - was all over the place. Upgraded to a midrange model, also eBay but this one about £40. Worked fine with a stock turbo when I just wanted to increase from 0.8 to 1.0 bar, but now I've fitted a Wink 4x4 hybrid, even when dialled back to just 1.5 bar, it opens and closes when near whatever threshold I set, so I dialled it back down to 0.8 while I look for a new one. I'll give turbosmart a try now - and if you're running a stock turbo you're welcome to try my outgoing one!

The halman comes with two springs. Iirc one is for up to 15 psi, the other stiffer one 15 plus.

That is a very generous offer GuyB. So is it the wink that you are getting rid of now? I can't seem to find a link to a wink boost controller? I should really bite the bullet and just get a turbosmart.
