Closed vs Open Loop Boost Control

While using a simple mechanical boost tap (Open Loop Control) is a very popular boost control method, using Closed Loop boost control will offer more boost lower in the rev range, and therefore more useable power in the RPM ranges that get used most frequently.

Closed Loop boost control system is a more direct and responsive way of maintaining a flat boost curve as it puts the ECU in charge of the solenoid. A correctly programmed ECU will get the boost up quicker while still hitting the same maximum power output.

The beauty of using this system is that the more powerful your engine, the better it works. But we will let our resident tech guru talk you through this in the technical video below.
