Red face to cut spring or not to cut

I was wondeing what would happen if i cut a coil off of the bov spring its a 14.7psi ?? would that lessen the spring tension resulting in lower boost pressure ?? i have a manual controller and want to start controlling @ around 8lbs ,, has anyone done it?

BOV would not work for this. Do you mean wastegate? Never did it but may work. Seems logical.

I don't think the bov controls the boost ^ but like he said it might work on the wastegate.

Cool

sorry i did mean wastegate i have been thinking about getting a new bov, i guess thats where that came from, the other theory is that if i cut the spring then it will open the same psi ,, but will act kinda like a car when you cut the coil springs ,, springs are like $15 no big deal, yea i have already ordered one but i really want to go curising tomorrow, www.svtoanashville.com monthly meeting is @ 4pm spring will be here around next monday
