Re: bypass valve presure openings

Sorry, I Thought you had a problem with the bypass valve concept.
As for the overspinning, I really don't know, from my experience of tearing
down countless turbos (mostly big ones), I never saw an oversppining (that I
was aware of?..), so I don't know. I think it is fair to assume that it is
not a big issue since almost every mfg.. uses some sort of bypass (including
