It definitely depends on the size of the turbo. A bigger turbo will have greater turbo threshold and thus less low end power. In general, the turbocharged cars will still produce more torque per...

So here is the appendix that says closed loop air/oil separators are CARB exempt, but those exemptions may have been superseded by new regulations. I do see that there are some EO#s for air/oil...

Dude, this is really going over your head. I'm not talking about the existence of the bypass valve being bad; I know what it is there for and that it is good. Your talking about a separate thing....

It would be easier to choke the inlet, but that wouldn't really be the same as doing boost-by-rpm, boost-by-gear, multiple boost maps, etc, nor would it solve the inefficiency of over-spinning the...

You completely missed the context of the conversation. We were discussing the use of the bypass valve as a wastegate to bleed boost like turbos bleed exhaust, so someone could run a smaller pulley,...

Exactly. Eventually the only sedans offered could be inexpensive, crappy ones that no one wants or really expensive ones that few can afford then the manufacturers will claim there is no demand.

There is demand, but apparently the bean counters think the demand isn’t worth the effort. This is why the C8 has no manual option. Sometimes they don’t know demand exists like Porsche with the 911R...

Or, people stopped buying them because they stopped making them. 0% of C8s are manual transmissions. It went from 26.55% to 0% in one year. That wasn't because demand dropped to 0%.

I'm aware, but the reason this is less common is because the supercharger is essentially over-spinning once the bypass is activated, which isn't good on fuel economy or on the life of the...

Agreed. I wouldn’t want to buy a manual either if I only could use 2nd and 3rd with 4-6th as overdrive gears, and that is in a Cayman. The 911’s have seven gears. I’m not surprised the GT3 with a...

Definitely less could go wrong. Worst case scenario is being stranded with a snapped belt. Throttle response is also more predictable, even if the power isn’t as good.

At redline I hit a bar of boost (14 psi). At 3,750 I'm half that, so 7 psi. Half that at 1,875, and I am at 3.5 psi (a turbo could hit full boost by then). At half that at 950ish rpms (idle) I might...

It depends on the car and the use, and maybe it depends on how much the car was seasoned before boost, but 50% more hp/torque is no problem. I’d imagine there is a fair number of us who are closer to...
