    Macsboost ?????

    Hey everyone I just have a question about the macsboost module. I have a 2005 Honda aquatrax r-12x. I bought it used and it came with the macsboost module. When i turn the ski on theres only a blue light that stays on , and its not changing color like on the site. Is this normal? Need help thanks.

    Yes the blue light will be on until boost is increased, it will then change as the boost keeps rising. It is just used as a visual aid for boost levels.

    that always tickled me. They only change under boost.. Boost only occurs under load..so i'm powering up from 0 to 60 and i'm gonna have the seat off and looking down so i can see the xmas tree?!? LOL..

    Simply put, yes, it works! But dont take it from me, There are many hundreds in use all over the world.

    If you want to do one thing only, I'd recommend the module. That will provide you with the largest performance gain for the dollar short of a stage II kit.

    Dont worry about the air filter unless you just want some extra noise. When you are ready for stage II, The IC and filters will double the effect of the module. IMO the uni filters provide the best airflow.

    I'd be interested in hearing how you like it once you've tried it out. I've got two (2) 2005 R-12x, I might like to put the module on.

    ive never worked on a honda but it is a turbo, why not just add a boost controler and rrfpr? Ive heard that macboost will only provide more power for a certian period of time then go in a limp kinda mode.
