If you are running high HP it is a nice EBC. It has boost by gear.

I've been researching it.... seems nice. Not sure how well it would play with my Cobb tune though is the only thing holding me back.

You can just get a normal EBC for 300.00 or so and switch from your N75. No need for the Plex unless you really have a hot build.

You might need a small revision to your Cobb tune, but my plex worked flawlessly with no issues. It really is a great setup, letís you control external hardware like a second fuel pump or meth and can also take inputs from other failsafes. I can 100% recommend it. Will be back in a couple of weeks if you want to meet up and take a look at mine.

I used it , it's good to tune your car boost based
on a lot of things ! Speed / IATs / gear !!
but not friendly use !!!

but if you know exactly how it work , it's 100% good

I have no idea how it works but reading up on it now. I think it will be pretty cool once it’s set up

get it, if encountering any problem let LQQK know, he will solve it
seriously get it and don't be afraid to get used to it, you will get support here on the forums if needed or directly from Plex, they are very supportive.

Plex is just way above any other EBC I know on the market, not only boost by gear (a lot of EBCs have that) or boost by rpm, but many others including logic and failsafes, multiple presets, compensation by iat/oil temp/engine temp/etc or inputs and outputs etc

With the EBC Iíd also recommend adding the aquamist and aem afr failsafe. I feed both of these into the plex. If either trip the failsafe, boost is cut, plus you can turn the aquamist off and boost is automatically lowered to a preset level. Another nice feature is the ability to reduce boost by intake and engine temps. Allows me to dial back the boost to wastegate until the engines up to temp. Lastly, Iíd also add a fuel pressure sensor. I have a failsafe that cuts boost if fuel pressure drop below a certain threshold. You will be surprised how often that can happen with only a single pump running.
