The blow-off is too prevent a boost spike when the throttle is snapped shut. It also prevents surging. Diesels have no throttle plate, so it kind of doesn't matter...

Yea, i knew that, and was never worried about it because of the throttle plate. Thanks for the answer. Im more curious where they are located and how it works on a diesel. Thats why i was saying it would work more like a wastegate for the intake - dont they open up at a certain PSI you set it to? It is on the intake (not the exhaust) side correct?

You are correct. Regular blow off's operate off vacuum from behind the TP. Because we have no vacuum, ours operate off boost pressure.

Wow! for $660 I would rather have an ATS ported housing for surge.
