Kinda clunky -- you're still only hitting set levels, not fully adjustable -- but plenty cheap enough to do (the Turbobricks way )
I ran this setup for a while with a pair of g-valve boost controllers. It's fairly simple using a dodge 12v vacuum solenoid valve. 2$ with pic-and-pull pocket discount +10$ at Grainger to make 2 G-valves.

hey just a word of advice. 28 psi = Fail (motor goes pop
^ that's why I don't run the 2 boost controllers anymore, I had one at 15 psi and the other at 25... there was a lot of ping ping ping, boom! one night.
