As some of you maybe aware, I have recently installed the Speedparts Stage 1 to my LPT. For a days last week I had been inadvertantly running with a loose hose from the turbo housing, the result of which meant that the turbo was boosting as high as it would go as the APC was inoperative at the time and remained open. Now that the hose has been fitted back on, I am slightly dissapointed with 1st and 2nd gear acceleration. I know that the APC controls the amount of power in the first two gears to preserve the life of the gearbox, however I would just want a little faster spool up on a standing start. I am seriously considering fitting an MBC instead of the APC system. Would I face less problems due to the fact I already have a re-mapped ECU which would allow higher levels of fuelling? Also what do you guys think about MBC's in general and how many of you have them fitted to your own vehicles?
