Boost by gear type features are totally different than what we're talking about.they do use motec standalone. i am not sure if they use boost by gear or not; ive heard of it being done, but im not sure if UGR does it or not.

It's not that difficult to limit the WOT maximum power using this feature.
We're talking about part throttle driveability and keeping the gas pedal linear.
while a lot of them are run as RWD on the dyno I would imagine that most if not all go back to AWD after they have their power numbers. Anybody know if this was a 6 speed manual or E-Gear car?
The original question he answered regarded what happens with turbo boost when you feather the throttle, and how it's tough to limit or modulate once the turbos are spooling. It wasn't really about electronic limits for this, though everyone went on to point out how that can be done. :beer:You can limit TQ for each gear, regardless of throttle position. Nobody ever mentioned WOT except you.
No amount of electronic nannying can fix stupid.The original question he answered regarded what happens with turbo boost when you feather the throttle, and how it's tough to limit or modulate once the turbos are spooling.

So apparently it was a wardrobe malfunction. :laugh:"This happened today at Caffeine & Octane here in GA. Owner (Name held back, I'd request the same if you know him) is a laid back and down to earth guy (was giving joy rides to 60 year old lady ). As he was leaving, stepped on it a little, car slid, spun around and jumped the curve. He wasn't even doing 20mph. Walked up to him and he was fine, but it turned out culprit was his shoe heel. Part of it came loose and as he stepped on the brakes, the loose part stayed partially on gas. Which kept him from full braking and gassed the car at the same time. He maintained his cool as people made fun of the situation, mad props to him for staying calm. We got together and helped him get the car out and on flat bed (it was a bitch to get in on). His last few lines were, "well gives me a reason to put some nice wheels and tint my tail lights lol."
Damage: The rear frame snapped off clean where the control arm bolts on to. No under body damage, no leaks, and car fired right up. He said car is going in for repairs monday and should be back for next C & O.
PS: Before some smart comments come up like, "needs to learn to drive." He has owned this for over a year, and his other cars include a built TT C6 Plastic mess-06 making 1200whp+. Just bad luck i would say.
You can use electronics to manage boost by gear, boost by RPM, whatever you want.isn't there a way around this though? BOV, wastegates, etc?
(excuse my ignorance- i am not super well informed on turbo setups)
When your boost pressure is below the threshold of your wastegate springs, you have no control over how the turbos spool.
