I would guess the longer pipe introduces a bit of extra backpressure at the WG, so it makes it harder to dump, thus boost goes up. I have a little pipe, but I only have 1/2 bar boost, so I can barely hear it when it opens.

I'm going to relocate the WG, and build a new WG discharge, like the one pictured by Install425, with a tapered diffuser section of pipe from the WG, so that it looks like a two-out muffler from behind the car. Obviously, not a standard 930 application.
