Hmmm, maybe I got this wrong. I was thinking about the shifting
transients, where I think there would be some wastegate flow as the
throttle is closed, but overall, I think I was just confused. Too much
stuff in there to deal with. Where can I get a good rotary? :-)
OK, I'm going to look for some 1.5" mandrel bends and some
tubing and see what it does.
