[Svo] Boost Solenoid {3}

I bypassed my controller solenoid once on my 86 and the result was pegging
the factory boost gauge and an overboost alarm.  So, I reconnected it.  I
will leave alone till I feel like replacing the solenoid w/ an adjustable
valve.  Apparently in my car the pressure bleed is restricted at the boost
solenoid and not the tee.
