RE: Max Boost/HP? 87 5kcstq

I think the metered air is the same in both cases.  In the normal case
the air gets pressurized into the IC and slowly bleeds off (or quickly
through an broken hose or IC).  In my case the air gets dumped before 
it breaks something.  Also, the valve is not a switch.  The higher the
the more the valve opens. Only pressure above 30psi gets dumped.  
Once the pressure comes back down to 30psi the valve is closed.
I would think that the metering system has clipped out at 30psi anyway.
