comment What is the function of a blow-off valve vs a wastegate?
Clarifying the original intent: if you are looking to up the performance of a forced induction vehicle, neither a wastegate or a blow-off valve will help. Neither is a power producer. They're just necessary plumbing.

comment How old is too old for a new tire?
@JerryOL, because I know that, at a minimum, my garage is not climate controlled. In fact, it's more sort of climate uncontrolled: air quality is terrible, who knows what kinds of particulates, temperature extremes, etc.
