    A number of years ago I used to own a Fiat Coupe (20VT), many owners had fitted a passive bleed valve to the line going from the turbo to boost pressure sensor (used by the ECO). They then tuned the bleed valve to mean that the ECU would slightly under-read the boost pressure and hence keep the...
