Nitrous Express' Boost Reference controller is a step ahead of those previously produced. According to Mathis, it's a set-it-and-forget-it controller, though to program it you will need use of a laptop. "Once the controller is programmed, nothing else is needed for it to function," he says. "The laptop is only needed in the programming of the box."

The use of a laptop makes this controller the first of its kind. Instead of being based on time or rpm, the Nitrous Express controller uses a MAP sensor to gradually bring in the nitrous. "All controllers beforehand have been time, or time and rpm, based," Mathis explains. "The new Boost Reference controller uses a MAP sensor integrated into the box to adjust the ramp according to boost pressures. This allows for boosted vehicles to use the nitrous to spool their turbo, while limiting high nitrous along with high-boost scenarios. It also includes a multi-ramp, which allows you to adjust the percentage ramp along multiple points in reference to boost."
