i threw down, 170 hp and 215 ftlbs. on a 90 degree day. with just a boost controller. i think stromer put down like 190 with an intake cat back and so forth.

and those would be T's
and you have a T7

You have a T7. It's T7 and T5, and 2000+ (and 99 viggen) are T7. I hope you mean a smbc, as a regular mbc won't work on a t7. And even with the smbc, the results are so-so as the T7 is ever working to correct.

A smbc is a series manual boost controller. It work with a factory boost pressure solenoid to increase boost. I beleive it won't actually raise the peak boost however. And I'm not sure even what this peak boost psi is. I'm a t5 guy anyways.

Im not so much looking to rais eboost, but rather just raise boost in the 1st 2 gears, does it work for that?

Yes...in a sense...The SMBC installed in series to the BPC will liven up the lower gears but as Rico pointed out, it shouldn't be used to raise peak boost. Some can get away with a little more without upsetting the the fickle t-7 system, others have not been able to do so.

I love it, car at the dealer and he's talking about the dyno. You seem like a candidate for an upgraded ecu!
