I really thinking of buying a manual boost controller(JOE-P)
Can I still run the stock sol. inline???
The reason I ask is because with the stock one, If it hears a knock it decreases the boost.>>>>This way it serves as a safty device???Maybe?
I need some help.
I rather be safe than sorry!!

If you get a MBC, get rid of your stock solenoid. Yes the ECU will cut back the boost if it hears knock but you can keep track of that with the knock LED mod on vfaq's. Plus, you can't run both at the same time! Just run high octane (93 if you got it), and you'll be fine at 15psi.

Yes, keep the stock solenoid out of the loop when you use an MBC. The stock bleeder type solenoid will defeat the purpose of adding an MBC.
However, if you wanted to, you can probably wire up a solenoid parallel to the MBC, but you'd have to reverse the signal from the ECU to the solenoid, ie when the ECU tries to close(power up) the BCS, your bypass solenoid opens(power off) and bypasses the MBC.
