The PERRIN Manual Boost Controller is a simple inline device that allows you to set your desired boost level with a few simple twists of the body. Applicable to most all turbocharged vehicles.
Easily adjusted by hand, the “twist-to-adjust” body simply shortens or lengthens to alter the spring pressure on the metering ball. This simple design only uses 5 parts and doesn't require any special tools to make adjustments.
At the heart of the PERRIN Manual Boost Controller is the Ball and Spring. The spring holds pressure against the metering ball, closing off boost pressure from reaching the turbochargers waste gate. Once the pressure builds to your desired setting the spring begins to collapse, the metering ball lifts and lets pressure through to the waste gate actuator limiting boost levels. The PERRIN Manual Boost Controller incorporates a custom wound progressive rate spring and a ceramic metering ball for it's lighter weight and ultra smooth surface insuring the fastest response possible.
The PERRIN Manual Boost Controller has a precision machined bleed hole that reduces the falling type boost curve that plague other boost controllers. This "tuned" bleed hole compensates for the added volume of air flow as RPM's increase and ensures a fast response as you approach your peak boost setting. This is a major advantage in the PERRIN design and allows our boost controller to be more consistent and perform better in all applications.

In the above dyno graph you can see how the PERRIN Manual Boost Controller builds boost faster and holds boost longer than the factory boost control system. Sometimes OEM boost control systems have wavy boost curves which can be felt during driving. You can see on this EVO X, the Manual Boost Controller has a much smoother curve.
