I've noticed my 9-5 Aero keeps racing after I lift my foot from the throttle, and seems to take a long time to spin down to a lower RPM. Is this also due to the bypass valve? > The original Bosch piece does the same thing, but it's much slower to > react, and is prone to failure due to its flimsy diaphragm design. > I've had two failures of the original Bosch bypass valve on my old > 9000T.

So it's not really exceeding any specs in the engine, that's good. And it sounds like the Bosch part can actualy cause shockwaves which can damage the turbo, so these aftermarket parts are actually BETTER for the engine? I think I have something new for my Christmas list... :-) Gary
