Actually my question concerning the waste gate was mechanical. It seems to me that a spring/diaphragm actuated valve would not respond quick enough for precise control of a 1200hp engine. Things happen fast! I would think a gate valve would respond with more speed and precision.
I could be wrong about that but it seems that if boost creep is a design issue then precision control would be compromised.
