    I was looking at that one when shopping for a boost controller. I opted for the innovative scg-1. For that price range I feel the scg-1 is superior. Key features that stand out to me were logworks datalogging software, a/f ratio, rpm tach that can be logged, and af safety cut. The e-boost is nice its just what you prefer I guess.

    The e boost is pretty cool I was runing mine for awhile . I just sold my ams 500v2 and bought a boost leash . The boost leash is probably one of the best controllers on the market IMO . The features it has are great and only on his products . not only for drag racing but it will be awesome on the street aswell .

    Did you get the pulse leash as well? I've been looking into diy methods.

    Do you need an external gate or XFI to run this setup?

    Do you have to run CO2 to the WG in order to run this?

    Please correct me if my interpretation is off, but this seems like a programmable boost controller that you can set the boost ramp rate, and the target psi for 3 different "stages" ? What dictates where a certain "stage" begins and ends? Rpm?

    As for the Pulse feature- does that allow you to put a pre-determined PSI to stage your car at, and keep the WG closed until that target psi is reached, and then you can launch? I know it has transbrake features as well, but since I don't have a TBrake I'm not as interested in those, more the staging info and how that works.

    I appreciate any and all info on the subject.

    Okay I'll try and give you some insight . I run co2 to control the wastegate . It has 5 stages if u want to use them or not . Time dictates the stages . Watch the boost leash demo on you tube . All you need is this controller no xfi ect . It has a launch boost that you can activate when the trans brake is active that u can set to what ever 10 psi then when the controller doesn't see that 12 vdc anymore it runs the profile u setup .

    I bought and installed the Leash bump box / boost controller last year. It's a fantastic unit. Very user friendly. The install was fairly easy as well. But me being me, I go overkill on things that I put in my car. I ran all of the boost lines with #3 Racetronix teflon lines and fittings. Drilled out the wastegate for dual ports as they mentioned in the instructions, and ran a custom air pump in the trunk with a water separator, air canister and a pressure sensor to keep my minimum pressure set at 80psi, and the highest at 110psi.I don't have the patience for filling Co2 bottles, so this method is perfect and keeps my boost rock solid.
