Bryan, the other thing you may check, and this one is bizarre, is the blowoff valve. When I was going out in a test drive after my rebuild, the situation occurred that you experienced. I found that the blowoff valve hadn't been secured. The engine vacuum kept the valve in place in the 965 elbow off the metering plate assembly. When a sudden throttle closure occurred during high boost, the blowoff valve pressurized the chamber and actually raised the valve out of its socket. The stiffness of the pressure line and engine vacuum returned the valve back to the socket. Eventually, the valve became lodged out of its socket and the engine would not start.
