    I am not too familiar with that particular function of the MAC12D, but 
the point is that there are other functions within that system that enrich 
the fuel under boost which results in increased fuel pressure throught the 
injectors, which ensure proper fueling to each cylinder.  The cold-start 
valves are known for their poor distribution of fuel to each cylinder, and if 
used to enriched fuel under boost, can result in some cylinders being 
severely lean, while others are too rich-hardly a reliable device to prevent 
engine damage and ensure performance...
