"It worked well for me. Again I would get instantaneous .2 to .3 bar off idle and .5 to .6 bar off curse"

If it was instantaneous .2 - .3 bar off idle like you have said, it seems like a street car would lurch forward right off idle and be difficult to drive and dangerous in traffic.

I can see how it would keep a turbo spinning faster at idle and cruise when a normal BOV may be closed, but instant .2 - .3 bar is alot and seems like it would be impossible to drive the car smoothly at low speed.

Also if you were "maintaining full bost between sport shifts w boost measured after the throttle plate" than the car would never slow down and keep accelerating because full boost after the throttle plate is the same full boost in the intake ports.

I like your stuff, but I'd have to hear this from more than one source or experience it myself to believe it.
