No flame or anything but why do so many people seem to think that boost controllers perform the same function as blowoff valves or bypass valves? [Image: confused.gif] I'm pretty new to turbos but even I know the difference between the three...

Both are good. Do a search... both these topics have been discussed at length at least 100 times.

There are two articles in the FAQs under the "Exhaust/Turbo" colume that explain both.
