FW: [200q20v] soft boost?

  I discounted the code showing WGFV disconnected (yellow check engine light
will flash intermittantly to remind me anyway). I used to be able  to pull
about 14-15 psi with no WGFV and stock spring with shims. I also did not
have anywhere need the lag to get there. I went to T-P WG spring because I
got faster ramp up. If I shim the T-P WG spring, I run into the 2.5 bar PT
cutout. If I have nothing to worry about, then I'll just go back to looking
for ways to go faster!! Thx

Just for grins, I disconnected the WGFV. Interestingly, the car will only
pull about 10psi, and is sluggish to get there. Normally pulls 21-22 peak...
Is this an anomoly because of the slightly bigger turbo, or is
there something wrong? BTW, no codes showing up. TIA

No, it's exactly what my car does.  I would think you'd have a 4442 code,
since the circuit would be open.  I haven't run a fault code when i did this
exact same test, though.  Aside from no code, it would appear to normal.
