I am considering ordering a electronic boost controller.But I just dont know if it is really worth the $$$ with the stock intercooler turbo and exhaust.From reading I know that I will need a FCD to keep from hitting boost cut.So my question is, If my car runs let say 9-11 psi factory, will I notice a considerable difference by uping that to lets say 15 or 16 psi?

Yes.... I have anyways. You don't have to go EBC though. You can get a MBC for very cheap. I wanted a EBC to start with... but figured I'd play with this until I get some better mods.

approx how much horsepower increase would you see going from stock boost to 15 psi.keeping in mind stock turbo,intercooler,and exhaust.i was thinking probally about 7 hp per extra psi of boost.

People generally say about 8-10whp per lb of boost. I dunno how true it is though.
