Really, from the "Goodyear Blimp" perspective, the goal is to tune the engine, not the turbo. The turbo is more or less another knob you turn to help the engine make nice, flat torque over the rpm band. Sure, you want to keep the turbo close to it's efficiency range and you want to avoid spikes, but ultimately you're tailoring the boost curve to the engine's breathing needs, not to hold some flat setpoint.

curious to see what a flat 15psi would do this motor...good or bad
