Cowtown,
The overboost sensor does exactly what it says, if boost from the turbo gets to high it will cut power to the fuel pumps. helps to stop the engine from getting damaged from high boost levels.
If you have ever had it cut in, you will almost shoot through the windshield if you dont have your seatbelt on.
It is a small sensor located under the intercooler, with a couple of wires coming from it. Some people short it out to stop the sensor working, not a good thing to do, you would risk damaging your engine.
