Default boost controler questions

so i have an 03 1.8t and I am wondering if anyone has tried to put a manual boost controler on, i would just go ahead and do it but the whole throwing off the ecu issue is something i want to avoid i figured i would just ask. Will this work with out throwing off the ecu? and if it does work what hose/hoses do i hook it up to? any tips are appreciated.

Where did you hear it would throw of the ECU?? Well if it does it would give you a reason to re-map it with the GIAC software..lol

yea why not, mine was $300 for the software. so after you put the gauge in, then get the software upgrade.
