Evening Oppo. I've been wondering for a while now what I could do to my car to make it a little more spirited. I've heard of manual boost controllers before and thought about it, and was just wondering your opinion.

The car is a 2001 VW Jetta 1.8t. Everything I've read says the stock ECU and fuel pump handles duties up to a little over 1 bar, and kicks into limp mode for safety if it ever goes above that. So keeping the boost at <= 14 psi would be completely safe, so I've heard. I was always wary in the past but now I want to do it. Opinions? Am I being stupid? Anyone else ever used a MBC?
