Never a manual boost controller and only a 3 port if you're getting it mapped. What's wrong with the one fitted?

3 port needs to be fitted by the mapper at the time. Will allow the mapper more control over the mapping but won't gain any hp, still a worth while mod if you're doing all the other stuff at the same time
