Default Anyone using an ipd Turbo Control Valve?

I was thinking of updating my T5 with some goodies from ipd. One of them being the Heavy Duty Turbo Control Valve. I understand that the factory one gets a little slow and sometimes can rob you of boost as it becomes old. Is anyone using one of these? I was wondering if it is adjustable (ipd calls it a boost controler) and if so what kind of boost levels it might provide.

My second question is that ipd states that the boost sensor (between the intercooler outlet and intake) will provide false boost readings as it gets older...anyone care to validate that? And are they expensive? Worth replacing?

Ultimately I would like to run a couple more pounds of boost over stock (10psi in the T5's) before throwing down the money on a tune.

Any and all advise is greatly appreciated!

That's because we have a rounded BCS style for the 850/70, newer ones have a square looking one like in the pics above. All you need to do is fab a small braket and walla, you got yourself a new BCS!!
