A satellite relay that activates your PCM to open the solenoid to dump your boost when speeds or torque is above the warranty limits of your drivetrain.....big brother controls everything.

Mine seems to be on a timer from when I nail the throttle....about 15 secs.....or 110 mph, whichever comes first.

HAHAHA !!! NICE... so it'* not the governor.. it'* the government!!!

I just think

a.) this will help people with boost dump issue (i.e. me.. and I"m sure there will be others)

b.) better then saying.. well... replace the BCS.. THEN.. we'll troubleshoot. (i.e. me again.. I don't want to replace something that MAY not require it)
