I still think the recirc valve is better as the turbo should keep spinning faster longer. Why waste the energy we've put into the turbo.
As for engine braking, that can be useful but I didn't really drive my 930 long enough to decide if it needed more than it already had. My car has the factory LSD which did seem to make the car push when lifting off compared to my 911 carrera with no LSD. This pushing was easily corrected when the boost came in
I know at low speeds my carrera would benefit from some more engine breaking, especially if you are in 2nd at low revs when you should be in 1st and nearer 4K. Maybe the 4spd 930 tranny makes more engine braking even more desirable?
These cars are already famous for lift off oversteer (loose for USA)!!!
