    a bov has NOTHING to do with boost pressure. It relives the stress on the turbo from backflow when you let off the gas (TB closes, boosted air has no where to go... saves the turbo from winding up backwards).

    a wastegate controls your boost pressure.

    The wastegate spring is basically the lowest amount of PSI u can run. Say you have a 6lb spring. You cant run any lower than that, but you can stretch the spring to run more. They do have a limit tho.
