building 5psi of boost in neutral ROCKS!
Well, got the electronic boost control function working on the EMS today, works like a charm! Next is hooking up my switch in the console as a high/low.

The other great thing I did on the AEM box today is setup the two-step control. I have it set to cut ignition at 3800rpm and cut fuel at 4800rpm which means about a 4500rpm launch (bit much right but I am not launching just testing). The EMS pulses and the ignition/fuel cuts create a pulse and some slight burn in the turbine housing causing it to spool up. Launching off the line with 5psi was just nuts! SOOOO not worth it on street tires.

Very cool. It works like an Anti Lag feature.

Correct me if I'm wrong, but doesn't anti-lag burn up your turbo quicker vs no anti-lag?

Yes, anti-lag takes a toll on your turbo if you do it a lot.

anti lag kills turbo, two step doesn't. Two step pulls fuel/timing and pulses to get spool in neutral, anti lag dumps fuel so it burns off in the manifold and turbine which is why it is so hard on the turbo. DOn't get the two confused just because they do similar things.
