Nothing wrong with them.... it is just a adjustable wastegate controller. It can't blow up anything! Now the idiot that doesn't know how they work and or not know when to stop turning the knob on the other hand CAN blow things up! So technically it's the end user that's to blame. It is because these rocket scientists who end up blowing up their motors because they kept turning the knob past the fuel and ignition timing capabilities. Instead of blaming "themselves" They point the finger at a simple device and nick name it ? "Dial-A-Death" . For example, If these genius's would understand that their fuel and timing capabilities are only good to let's say 1 bar, and they have a .7 bar spring in their waste gate, then one could purchase a manual boost controller and add adjustability and be able to fine tune overall boost limit to 1 bar. But since it can boost more the fuel and timing doesn't support it the end user is the Pulitzer prize winner that pushed it beyond the systems ability. Not calling anyone specifically out, just a little venting.
It changes from time to time.....
