Avi, I was referring to Gary's explanation of his friend's 4ktq which is
being run with a blow-off valve and no wastegate. Ok, Throttle plate
shuts and blowoff dumps excees pressurized air,  wouldn't there be a
momentary turbo overspeed until pressure from last few piston strokes and
exhaust manifold pressure clear out through the turbine since there is no
wastegate? And might it be exagerated when the blow-off opens reducing a
lot of the resistance on the compressor side?  Or are the pressures in the
EM too small to do that to a turbo spinning at ~100k rpm's?
