John Robinson has gasflowed his MB engine and finds that performance has 
_suffered_ as a result.  If you put more air in, ya gotta put more fuel in to 
keep the mixture right.  That's basically controlled by the air mass sensor (up 
to a point) and then by the ECU.  How do you tell the ECU that more air is 
going in for a given boost level?  The ECU is not connected to the air mass
