Default My boost controller isn't working, any ideas?

The Apexi SAFC-II I found with the turbo kit at the junkyard isn't working. Anyone know what it could be? So maybe I could fix it myself?

I am trying not to spend frivolous money. I want to spend money on good parts for my car.

Also I'm currently boosted without a BOV, I need a BOV bad but won't have the money until Thursday

I estimate that I am running with approximately 4-5lbs of boost currently. And I don't want to turn it up until I have a BOV and boost controller hooked up. I really need to get tuned too. I am running very rich right now.

Maybe because the safc isnt a boost controller at all?

I know its not a boost controller. I typed that by accident. I have been looking at buying a boost controller and must have typed it by accident.

Anyways anyone know how to make the SAFC II work?

I don't have instructions. I found the entire setup at the junkyard.

So I am kinda flying blind here and I have never used one before.

Alrighty, well you have some the proper things (besides the garbage part you found) to get your ride running correctly. Get a BOV and most boost controllers are garbage, so be careful on which one u buy.

toss that SAFC in the trash.. itll cost you more to box it up and ship it then its acyually worth.. If it was worth a shit, it wouldve been gone a long time before you "found" it

So I'm guessing I don't need to hook up the FMU either?
