mark, mine looks like that too. i have asked others but no real response. i am also curious about others timing at idle because of this.

the retard is only there at idle. it is all out by 1200RPM. well, when yo let off the gas it is back in but once the throttle is cracked again its gone.

yes you can remove it. there is also something else you should be aware of. when boost is applied to both lines, there is no boost retard. i dont know if porsche put some kind of check valve in the throttle body to block boost. i think there is a solenoid that is suppose to block it but all that is removed on my car. i ran without the retard until i put a check valve on the line.
