If somebody bypassed the switch (many do when installing 1.0 bar spring), you will have no margins whatsover.

I think that has been done since boost was not cut. I will soon start a thread on my car to help discover what has been done but talking to a few Porsche shops that know the car well said the 28 year owner has built a top motor.

After research I do know it does have the 7006 Turbo so far and Twin plugs.

If something happend to the engine would it have smoked by now? It has no smoke at all even on cold start nor does it feel like anything is wrong?
