Whats the difference between a boost valve and a power boost valve?I bought a power boost valve from ebay but only a "boost valve" was delivered, is there a difference?

6 Answers


As I understand it power boost valves are adjustable whereas boost valves are preset to the correct pressure of the vehicle -


uh... why do you need such thing anyway? are you modding your engine aiming for at least 50+hp than stock?


Uh... Because he wants to control air pressure in a turbocharged vehicle so as not to destroy his turbo?


nope, according to the link above, that thing is not related to turbo. It's a fuel regulator.



uh.... we call that thing boost controller in my country. and electronic boost controller is much more reliable, I won't go for mechanical one.
