Is it a possibility to hook that POWERFC to a laptop to change settings and read data? Lastly, do u have the boost control option on the unit...if so how much extra is all that?

Yes it's possible to hook the PowerFC to a laptop, just not yours. Only XS have access to the software in the US and no they won't sell it. You can get the FC Commander to change most of the settings yourself if you want to tune your car.

The Power FC does support boost control option.

You need to buy it optionally and hook it up yourself.

damn that sucks...no laptop interface...so is the ECU preprogrammed to run with the kit..or does it need further tuning after the turbo is installed?

The Power FC that comes with the turbo kit will be pre-programmed by XS to work well right out of the box. You'd probably also be able to get a handheld FC Commander to do some fine tuning for your specific engine, climate conditions, local gas, etc., but you'd better find someone who knows what they're doing to tune it, or it could lead to disastrous results for your engine.
