Based on what I can find, stock Evo 9 actuator is around 11-12psi which seems a bit low. The other reason to upgrade to stronger one is also ability to hold boost better at higher rpms.

My target max boost probably won't exceed 25psi coz that's what I read the limitation also for the stock BOV before I need to upgrade that one also (which I don't prefer for now). Therefore I am thinking an 18psi actuator might fit the bill, ir maybe just 14psi? Or should I just go with external altogether? I'm actually trying to keep it as simple as possible just to optimise the stock turbo and engine. (Btw engine wise I just bought Greddy 264 cams only).
want to upgrade BOV? I’ve got a synapse laying around here somewhere

innovate boost/shift light 52mm around 8xx at ken racing.

if used, so far only saw mechanical boost gauge. post up wanted ad at fb group.
This one I know, N1 selling for rm800 but this one only works accurately at sea level because it's absolute pressure and not relatively pressure. So if you go up Genting or Cameron, the reading will be wrong.

Profec is boost controller, not gauge. I have already the Profec B spec 2.
he means the later fancy profec, the profec oled, initially i thought you got one of those!, has boost display, graph bars. basically everything one would need/want.

Mahal la, rm1500+. Last time got used ones at rm1100, should have bought it.

Anyway I found already a mechanical Defi 52mm from a Swift Club member nearby my house.

mechanical is big and clumsy. I find anything on the A-pillar kinda blocks your view. The other day a full grown woman was hidden by the A-pillar when I was driving and I don't usually miss pretty fully grown women!

But this defi one I bought seems responsive enough based on the video I saw on the previous owner's car. Size 52mm hopefully not too big, matching my AEM AF meter. I try first on the A pillar, already bought a casing too for 2 meters. The thing is I don't like cables showing up too much and I want neat looking dash so pillar installation seems to be the tidiest way. Another option is to put them with stands on top of the steering column cover angled sideways so won't block the other instrument cluster but not sure if can do with just double tape coz I don't want to drill and screw it.
