Hmm if this is true then I guess we could blame Mitsu engineers for choosing engine/turbo combo suspectable to mild bucking under certain conditions? Thus this isolated problem could be mended in quite unorthodoxal way (by fitting controllable boost leak, to the tune of -15HP) but I hope we still agree that pop-off is bad thing and that BOV is a BOV is a BOV, and that there is nothing magical or power-producing in them

What BOV did Audi use for their mega-power IMSA cars?
