Whatdayah think about this Scott? Does is make a big diff where I connect
the bypass valve? How did you plumb yours? Do you think that connecting to
the compressor inlet elbow and to the IC-to-throttlebody hose is a good
bypass setup? What's your thought on the larger HKS bypass valve and the
larger diam hose that would be possible with it?
