Boost Control on LSA Supercharger

Does anyone know if you could use some kind boost controller on the bypass to control boost? Letting it open a bit at a certain boost level to hold it there? Seems like the boost signal is there, just wondering if this would work or if anyone's done this.

Why would you even want this? if you wanted a "lazier" power curve you should have went with a different power adder.

and you'd only be able to run the boost of what your pulleys put out. waste of money!!!

Yeah, but you'd have to get a turbo with it

Although it would be nice to be able to control boost in the lower gears for traction at the strip and then increase it to full boost, right now only the Turbo guys can do it, I spoke with Leash Electronics about using his system to do this with the bypass a few years ago, but the bypass works opposite of a waste gate so it won't work.

Procharger did have a setup that used a boost controller, I saw it at sema a few years back. Never saw one on a camaro though.

That looks like what I'm looking for. Unfortunately I have the LSA supercharger on an LS3 so now computer control on my bypass. Don't think this would work. I would need something like this that would be standalone.

You just need more tire on a prepped track.
