I have a suggestion. This is a great article for anyone debating on which FI to go with but it doesn't really tell much about the components of a system. For people like myself, I already knew the pros and cons of turbo and SC and the different types of SC. However, as far as the components in a system and what each does, I have no idea. I am starting my turbo build and buying components seperately but I'm not sure what I need and what would be nice extras. I've seen terms like boost controllers, wastegates, blow-off valves, diverters, etc... and don't know the difference in their functions and what I need for my system. Maybe a write up listing components involved in each type of system and a breif explanation of what they do would be nice.
