	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.
