thinking about going boost by gear .have the adaptronics e420c which can take that set up according to the adaptronics web site . it shows a honda with boost by gear where the hall sensor is bolted around the front axle and picks up the back of wheel studs.just want to know if any body has gone with boost by gear and how please

Pretty sure the latest Zuboo build has boost by gear. Have a look through those posts and see what you can see. I'm sure it's been done on a few builds. How, not sure, but I'm sure it's been done

I thought ABS sensor gear would be ideally suited to that exercise.

It would need magnets mounted on the back of the studs so the hall effect sensor can detect wheel rotation speed.

I have read about boost by gear so I'm sure it can be done, would need something like a gear indicator (have fun wiring that up) to tell the ECU and then map from there. Maybe just a 1st and 2nd boost restrictor to prevent wheel spin and full boost for the rest?

I have ran boost per gear and the sensor like posted is using the wheel studs for the trigger.

It does work well for high powered cars or is the surface is poor and the power needs pulling back.

I was running

12psi in 1st
18psi in 2nd
25psi in 3rd
35psi in 4th

Now days i just run max boost all gears as the car setup is more refined and predictable on the higher setting.
