Getting a Boost controller of ebay.

I just wanted to know if anybody has a boost controller that they got of ebay, and if they even work and if so then how good? I'm talking about the JDM boost controller and the other nonbrend boost controllers.
Thanks guys.

you can make your own boost controller with some simple home depot parts.

Ditto on making your own.

I think mine cost about $10, including the cost of the drill and tap.
Been working fine for years on the Talon and have been playing around with it on the SRT-4.

With making your own, can you switch the boost the same way as with the brand once? And if yes does anybody have a site on how to make one?
