3-port BCS on a X?

Reading between the lines (and the American forums), it would seem I need a 3-port boost control solenoid! The Perrin website has a great write-up on these, very easy to follow. Has anyone fitted one to their X and are there any recommendations/pitfalls?

Apparently you'll need it mapped after fitting, so factor that in as a cost.

Had a 3 port and remap to mine last week by evotune. Don't know what make it is just took jamie's advice that it was required. Can't see any pitfalls tbh as it could be deemed a safety device in my eyes

To get a stable boost curve and held boost they are and they also prevent overboost spikes on the SST's as they react faster.

Badly phrased but certainly makes the graphs look smoother and better driveability through the gears or is that just the remap

My curve is smooth as butter, mine's manual though my mapper told me not to waste my money and he's a ****load of ten experience!

Not sure if they've made improvements for the X or if some are just better than others. If you do have a decent boost curve then I'd say it probably isn't particularly needed. If you're getting it remapped anyway though, I guess you might as well as it all helps.

The Evo X has a lot better boost control than the earlier cars and you can get a very nice flat boost curve with a 3 port, when you fit tho you will need to lower the duty's in the ecu.

I was not saying a smooth curve it's about how the car holds boost with a 3 port compared to the standard boost solenoids.

although is cheap to buy you don't need it on Evo X especially with after market ecu. Boost spike can occur but with a little patience you can have a nice curve with a lot of over boost if you like the happy tail and fun that gives

Think something similar covered in Rossw thread on his X work here

https://www.lancerregister.com/showth...=357425&page=6

His conclusion was that the X tubby cant support over 1.2held to hit 400hp on ATP dyno even with the Greddy Profec B electronic boost controller
