It is to change the amount of pressure required for it to blow off. If you have it tight it'll only blow off at high boost and loose you'll always hear it even a low throttle. You'll hear the flutterdump style sound if its super loose and a loud purge if tightend a lot

It really is. You can read up all you want about how to please a woman, you can look at all the diagrams in the world, but just like the clitoris, you won't know what the hell an apex is before you actually find it.

I'm not too sure to be honest, I heard it depends on your boost, how many pounds are you pushing out? Some people like it really loose so everyone can hear it others like it tight so they can be low key? And I also believe that the looser it is, the more boost pressure you vent out
