    I've got a BoostValve.com boost controller installed right now, and it works well at full-throttle, but it leaves something to be desired in the heavy-traffic-drivability department -- which is to say, while it's nice to get 19psi at 2500rpm, it's really not what I'm asking for if I'm only stepping on the gas a little bit.

    So I need an electronic boost controller that can connect to my throttle and can control the boost limit accordingly -- e.g. 5psi @ 1/3, 10psi @ 2/3, 18psi @ full throttle.

    Got any recommendations?

    1999 VW Passat 1.8t. AEB engine (bigger ports and stronger block than newer 1.8t's) pushing 18psi. It does okay for a 4-door sedan.
