The higher the pressure on the normally vented diaphragm is, the higher the boost pressure needed open the wastegate.
Bottom line - more diaphragm pressure, more boost, more compression, more fuel, bigger bang when something lets go.
AHA....yes...get a little over 1 when fully engaged....get .9 when disengaged...just another fun component, hehhehheh....
