I agree, that the 1/2 mile dead end straight rural road outside my house has suddenly got a lot shorter. I have chosen to ignore the faint internal engine noise at the moment until something more telling surfaces, or I need another reason to pull the engine. Last night was the first glitch free run in the car - no coughs, farts or burbs, just straight line pull. But this boost behaviour is consistent, repeatable, with the pedal floored. I wonder about a boost leak. It did have an EBC, and when turned off, in the one run prior to working on the car - it seemed to peg at 0.8. But I never pushed it into high revs.
What is a Dawes?
Yes, it does have an unusual throttle response characteristic around 0 boost range. Fun tho.
