Would freeing up the pressure after the turbo also reduce propensity for boost creep? I think it would because the lower pressure after the turbo would allow less back up of pressure thru to the inlet side plumbing correct? Thinking out loud.
Can anyone describe the boost creep phenomenon as it happens during running in the car?
How would one determine the wastegate spring is not the cause, I mean what would happen to the boost gage whole driving to know whether you have creep or just a spring that was too stiff to control boost where you want it?
