which electronic boost controller is good for 2.5 bar?

Hi, i have an evo 8mr with 2.2 ND, AMS gt 850 turbo kit and autronic mapped at 2.5 bar. My AEM boost controller solenoid is broken so it needs replacement. I am thinking of using an electronic boost controller instead so i can use lower setting say 1.7 and 2.0 bar. With the autronic i can have 1.2 bar when the AEm is off and 2.5 when on.
Does anyone uses autronic (smc)with an electronic boost controller? Which one can hold 2.5 bar with no problems? Greddy b spec, apexi or blitz?
thanks Nick

Blitz SBC spec R, Greddy Profec B spec II, HKS EVC and also the Gizzmo units can handle 2.5Bar i believe

You need to make sure the MAP sensor with whatever unit you go for is capable of reading 2.5 bar, many are not.

I like the simple cheap single soleniod Blizt one, This will boost to 2.5 bar no problems. 2.5bar is the mapsensors limit on the blitz, If you want to run over this have a external gauge as the blitz works based on duty and not target boost.

The ones I have seen stop reading between 2.1 and 2.2bar boost. they can run more boost but not closed loop target boost.

Thanks for the replies. I guess i ll go for the gismo unit since it can go up to 3.5 bar so it can take the 2.5 with no problems. Just in case i will also order another AEM boost solenoid.
Also has anyone used the gismo launch interface? Is it safe Mark to use it with autronic? I have Sheptrans transfer case and 5-sp trasmission so i am thinking of putting them into test!:lol:

Good choice ;)
Comes with solenoid though and can run over 3.5 bar boost ;)
Internal MAP sensor is accurate to 4 bar boost.
