What started out with fairly simple intentions, has escalated to become an essential component of almost any performance car project. We began developing what was going to be a simple but highly effective electronic boost controller, but it became much, much more....

The goal of the Garage 7 Intelligent Peripheral Controller (IPC) is simply to bring the luxuries of advanced auxiliary control found in high-end engine management platforms to vehicles using OEM or basic aftermarket ECU's.

The IPC's biggest bragging right is its freely configurable PID closed loop boost control. Comparable to or better than that found in very high-end standalone engine management platforms. PID control offers true target based boost control with autonomous adjustment. Boost control isn't the end game, though, its uses go far beyond that. Thermo fans, water sprayers, pumps, solenoids, or just about any other device your vehicle may require.

Key Features

  • PID closed loop boost control, virtually unlimited configuration
  • Boost by gear, ethanol, or any other available channel with freely configurable 3D tables
