Yeah, I forgot the stock gate was set for 10.

I'm a little more comfortable alterting the 'base' gate pressure than
installing a bleeder valve. That seems like a good way to get dust into the
system. I've also wondered about altering the total length of the hoses
from the
boost solenoid. Ford is soooooo specific about the hoses being calibrated to a
certain size and length (14.78 inches ?) that there must be some effect to be
had in just enlarging the area to be pressurized.

I've not had any luck finding 'raw' tubing for the experiment as none of the
auto parts places have anything like it.
