Differences Between Hallman Boost Controllers
Hallman Boost Controllers are some of the
best manual boost controllers on the market today. They are
made with high quality aluminum and stainless steel for a long,
problem free life. Hallman controllers include the ES kit, the
Pro kit, the Evolution kit, the Lancer Evolution kit, and the
cockpit controller add-on. The Pro and EVO kits also come in an
"RX" model with added benefits.
The Hallman ES Kit
The Hallman ES kit is the entry level kit.
This controller provides the best bang for the buck, and is
suitable for most applications. The body is made out of billet
aluminum that is anodized black. It has an easy to use knob for
boost adjustments. This valve has overboost protection, just in
case the knob comes lose, although this is highly unlikely.
This kit comes with 3' of vacuum hose, 4 cable ties, and
installation instructions. This kit uses a 316 stainless steel
The Hallman Pro Kit
The Hallman Pro manual boost controller is a
setp up from the ES kit in terms of features and design. It is
machined out of billet aluminum, and anodized in your choice of
red, black, blue or purple colors. The Pro valve incorporates
the best adjustment knob on the market. There is no locking nut
or need for a wrench. You simply turn the adjustment knob, and
it stays. The adjustment knob also cannot be lost or separate
from the valve. There is no risk of overboosting, once the
boost is set, as the knob is permanently fixed.
The Pro kit also comes with 3' of vacuum
line, a mounting bracket to hold it in place, a hardware packet
for the installation, and complete instructions. This kit uses
a 316 stainless steel ball.
The Hallman Pro RX Kit
The Pro RX kit uses the same valve as the
Pro kit, but has added features. This kit comes with 2
interchangeable springs, as shown in the picture above. The
lighter spring is used for those who want a precise adjustment
of up to 5psi over stock levels. The heavier spring will allow
adjustments greater than 5psi above stock.
Instead of using the 316 stainless steel
ball, this kit uses a lighter weight ceramic ball, which weighs
only a fraction of the standard ball. What you get is faster
response from the controller as the ceramic ball can react
faster to constantly changing directions.
The Pro RX kit is our personal
recommendation based on the added benefits over the ES and Pro
kits, as well as future capabilities for cockpit control,
should you desire.
The Cockpit Controller Add-On
The Hallman cockpit controller add-on is a
great tool for those who already own a Pro series kit, and want
to be able to make adjustments from inside the car! This add-on
kit has a 72" cable. The Pro valve remains mounted beneath the
hood, but the cable runs into the car, so adjustments can be
made to the boost levels without stepping foot outside of the
car. This add-on works only with the Pro series, and does not
work with the ES kit.
The Hallman Evolution Kit
The Evolution kit incorporates the Pro Valve
and the cockpit controller for an all-in-one unit. It comes
with the Pro valve, the 72" cockpit controller, 3' of vacuum
hose, a mounting bracket, hardware installation package, and
The Hallman Evolution RX Kit
The Hallman Evolution RX kit incorporates
the Pro RX valve with the cockpit controller add-on. It comes
with the lighter ceramic ball, both the light and heavy
springs, a mounting bracket, hardware installation package, 3'
of vacuum hose, and full instructions.
The Hallman Evolution Lancer Kit
This kit is known as the Evolution Lancer
kit, or the Evolution short kit. It was designed specifically
for the Mitsubishi Lancer Evolution. The kit combines the Pro
valve with a shorter, 49" cockpit controller. The Mitsubishi
EVO does not need a full length cockpit cable, as the turbo is
located at the rear of the engine. Using this kit will give you
the perfect length, with no extra slack! This kit comes with
the mounting bracket, hardware installation package, 3' of
vacuum hose, and full instructions.
The Hallman Evolution Lancer RX Kit
This kit is the same as above, except it
incorporates the features of the RX model valve. The kit comes
with the lighter ceramic ball, light and heavy springs,
mounting bracket, hardware installation package, 3' of vacuum
hose, and full instructions.
