well its only for turbo cars. It controls the turbo witch is pretty much a air compressor. If you are familuar with air compressors they have a valve on them so that you can the amout of pressure you want flowing, well its the same way for a turbo. The turbo is like a air compressor and the boost controller is like the vavle that adjusts the pressure. When you get a boost controller you can turn the boost (pressure) up witch gives you more air flow and more power. But one thing to always remeber is that you must keep a air fuel ratio within a certain area, so you can't crank the boost up as high as you want. I hope this helps.

BTW, this should be in the genral or off-topic area not the electronics.
