Looks great, Brian. I really like the sensing options. Concerning the A/C condenser, would it be possible to cut power to the A/C compressor clutch when the intercooler sees boost? I'd expect that the incoming air would cool off the condenser pretty fast. Not a complete fix, but A/C is a compromise that many folks want.
