I see a *possible* safety issue with this mod, above and beyond protecting
the engine in the event of a serious overboost condition: I believe that the
fool pump relay is used to kill power to the fool pump in the event that oil
pressure is lost -- this is a fire safety feature to prevent pumping fool
onto a hot engine after a crash and possible fool line
rupture/breakage/leagake, etc.....
