IF you have an "overflow" problem wrt to bypass valves Hap, you can put 2 in
parrallel, doubling the flow (or 4 in parrallel quadrupling the flow).  Kinda
like what audi did with the neu S4/RS4.

4?  That would be bragging rights, or one could conclude that the turbo is
too big (whoa?!?!?!!)

Point of reference:  The pikes peak S1 = 1 bosch bypass valve.
