Installed on a 2017 civic SI with a PRL big turbo kit gen1. Gtx2860r
I've been running this setup along with methanol control and a pressure sensor. It performs well beyond my needs. The software comes with a really good help document, make sure you READ it all TWICE. You can make simple control maps or go complex, there's open and closed loop controls. Along with launching features and spool control. You won't find anything better in the price range.
The Cortex EBC Complete Kit includes everything required for a full controller installation on most vehicles. This kit is intended for those who are installing a turbo on a previously naturally aspirated engine or who require a boost control solenoid, hose, fittings, etc. for a complete installation.
This version includes an external mini display with stand.
The Cortex EBC Complete Kit is available with either a 3-port or 4-port boost control solenoid (BCS) to match the boost control requirements of your specific application.
Our 3-port solenoids are recommended for most users. They are easy to tune, provide very precise boost control, and are capable of producing boost levels 2 to 3 times greater than wastegate spring pressure on most applications.
Our 4-port solenoids are available for applications that need to achieve a very wide range of boost levels based on gear or vehicle speed. They can be more difficult to tune than a 3-port solenoid, but can produce boost levels that are 4 or more times higher than wastegate spring pressure on most applications.
3-PORT BCS OVERVIEW
Compatible with internal and external wastegates.
Used to control pressure application to a single wastegate port.
Provides better control accuracy and resolution than 4-Port BCS.
Capable of producing boost levels at least 2 times greater than wastegate spring pressure on most applications.
Limited ability to counteract boost taper caused by exhaust manifold back pressure without the use of CO2 or compressed air.
4-PORT BCS OVERVIEW
Compatible with external wastegates or dual port internal wastegates.
Used to alternate pressure application between two wastegate ports.
Has reduced control accuracy and resolution compared to 3-Port BCS.
Capable of producing boost levels at least 4 times greater than wastegate spring pressure on most applications.
Extremely effective at counteracting boost taper caused by exhaust manifold back pressure without the use of CO2 or compressed air.
Can also be used in 3-port BCS configuration by plugging one of the ports.
