Default Booost bypass valve

My friend sent me to this link last night -

http://www.mccgp.com/upgrades/boostb...ost_bypass.php

Does this apply to the S1? I hope it does as I just did it.

UH OH. I didnt plug the vacuum hoses, I just pushed the valve down, That was ok, right? It will be able to dump boost still?

The linked page is for the BCA optimization, not the bypass. There'* a big difference. Optimization (adjusting the BCA to get into boost quicker by rotating the BCA) is fine. The bypass is the vacuum trick, and CAN be an issue. But that'* not what this topic is about.

While the adjustment you made is theoretically good for performance, it'* not likely to make a noticeable change at the dragstrip. You get into the boost a little quicker (milliseconds), but it does not add power.

Phew. I feel alot better now. I would NEVER block vacuum hoses. I would never bypass something like that.

Hmm, well I did it and drove it today, the boost gauge boosts lower that what it did. Was I supposed to push it to the left-down position or just down?
