this posted by enron exec in the how-to section:

"Hey daking, do think it would be possible to use a 12 lb pulley and add something like a wastegate so that it releases to atmospher or into the filter when you hit 7 or 9 lbs of boost? Id thought this would would be a trick way to get more midrange. "

This seems brilliant..has anyone done this.. how easily could this bee accomplished..

Essentially you would reach full boost early in the rpm range much like a turbo!

Or a BOV? Anyone? Im not the first to come up with this idea but no one has yet put it to practise. I might try this once i save up enough for my next few mods.

Its possible, but there are two issues that you may run into.

#1:Depending on where the kit (Vortech, ATI, HKS, etc) places the MAF and where the BOV is placed it may cause the car to run very rich. Reason: if MAF reads xx amount of airflow and engine only receives >xx then the ecu will be putting too much fuel in for actual amount of air.

#2:Supercharger must be able to flow 12psi or more efficiently.

Another issue is tuning the BOV/Bypass valve correctly. It can be done, but alot of trial and error becasue every part is different.
