Aint going to do a damn thing if/when a turbo seal lets go and the engine is running away.
You either have to cut air off completely, or take it out of gear and wait for the engine to commit suicide.
Guillotine style is what I would recommend. Install it in the cold side intercooler pipe.

x2 with woods. The butterfly takes up property that needs to stay reserved for airflow only. Only the Guillotine is completely out of the airs path until it's needed to function.

air shutoffs

But the loss of air flow verse the loss of under hood space is it really worth it. The gillotine ones I found were huge looked like a lot of work to put in and would need to come out when daily using pickup. Nothing set in stone about having to have it yet. So until I'm really built not putting anything on it until then just investigating now

what do you do when running down the track, i assume you are still running an air filter, don't know, some guys don't. what if you install it after air filter only on track days?

yes currently still running the stock airbox and have to stay in my class as i don't have enough mods done yet to make the jump up to what i think we're going to call prostreet diesel. i'm in a stock heavy class now. one reason why i was looking at the butterfly valves could put inline from filter to turbo and could just leave it there all the time. the gillotine ones didn't look that easy to put inline. but then again i have never seen one in person either
