I just wanted to restate that I have done a few more AVCS tests and the difference in boost at WOT in the upper RPMs when running positive AVCS values to redline is significant. I have had to retune my upper RPM WGDCs due to overboosting. Lots of STIs just run maximum WGDCs in the upper RPMs to milk as much boost as possible (because it seems to let off at 15psi anyhow). With increased AVCS settings, I hit 17.5psi at 6400rpms. Yes, I know that I do not want to do this - rofl. Just stating the results of a test. This wasn't boost creep either. I'm talking about boost in 3rd gear and my car has never creeped in 3rd gear (especially in 80+ d weather). I now have to clamp down my WGDCs a lot tighter in order to not overboost (as in the rofl AVCS test with 17.5psi).
