What blower are you going to be using?

There is no sensor on the bypass valve. That'* the boost control solonoid. The valve itself doesn't care about pressure. It doesn't control the AMOUNT of boost you get. It controls HOW MUCH AND WHEN you get your boost POTENTIAL. You can't trick those devices into giving you MORE boost. It doesn't work that way.

LittleBlackBird, he'* talking about an M62 here. Gen2.

That'* what I'm thinking. Or someone is filling someone'* head with dreams of sugarplums and un-realities.

that wouldn't be to trick the engine. that would be to make the bypass hold closed untill a higher psi is reached.

The bypass won't release because of pressure. It'* not like a blow-off valve.

Most of us know that playing around with disabling the boost control solenoid, that you are playing with risking terminal engine damage.
Most of us are using aftermarcket PCM'* that have programming changes to optimize the control of this safety feature to allow slightly higher pressures.

I admit that I once used this technique before I replaced my computer.
It'* simple to do. If you do a search on the topic it should explain everything.
I don't recommend it.

it is not like i have only 1 car and engine. i have two l67'* setting on engine stands and i know where i could get 1 or 2 more. i'm just trying to perform and brainstorm. trial and error is the only mothod that has ever worked for me. just like to know as much as i can before a trial turns into an error. how does the boost control solenoid work?

It'* told by an electrical signal via the PCM to either turn vacuum on or off to the BCS.

Rather than trial and error on this one, I suggest you learn from our knowledge and mistakes. Don't mess with the BCA or BCS.

In addition, you can't get 20psi out of a roots blower, and most of what you're talking about in this topic is going to require EXTENSIVE work to that engine and trans to support it.

I just want to make this as clear as possible, as it sounds like you're ready to move on some of these ideas.
