No! You DO NOT WANT HIGH BOOST in low RPM's, 1300, 1800, 2000rpms is a no no! around 2800-3000 rpm is ok to start making ur way to 6,7,8,9,10,11...etc lbs of boost! And by "bypassed" u mean how to prevent it from boosting to high in low rpms..? Well easy, An ECU tune will do the trick! make sure all of stage 0 is complete! Guys on here really stress that!
Hope it helps

Hey 97 - Thanks for yours. But... if it is the Turbosmart "Tee" MBC which is controlling the boost (nice looking little gadget BTW) how does the ECU tune hold or control the waste gate below 3k RPM?
