Have you considered the AEM UEGO Boost controller?

its what I use. Works good, has many features, just needs some getting used to

but its also 200+ dollars.

I have Greddy's Profec B digital boost controller. It works great, but does take time to get used to like the AEM UEGO(like a5hatch said). But once you get the values dialed in, it's dead on everytime. I have never touch it since the tune, except to turn from low to high boost. Haven't messed much with what you had on the poll. Hope it helps.

My other route was getting a Corsport electronic boost solenoid and having to solder in a PWM Ecu component in my hondata. Is that better??

That's your best option. Using S300? Just get he boost solenoid $80, PWM component $10 and you will have full boost control, boost by gear, good stuff

^^ exactly. If your using s300, just buy a boost solenoid for under 100 bucks and be done. Then you have boost by gear options, ect ect. You will never have to upgrade from that set up. We're using it on four of the outlaw sfwd cars here in utah that are 900-1000+HP
