i mean restriction where the engine will surge and boost will jump up and down by 7 - 10 psi ! my old cossie did this and had to have boost capped below 5300 rpm to 24 psi as the engine just physically couldnt consume the air the big t4 was producing! it sounded rank tbhthey are a restriction anything over 400bhp IMO.... good porting & polishing, removing restrictors etc, is good for around 40+bhp i have been told.
