Time for some baseless speculation.
I was perusing McCabe's informative site and a few articles got me thinking. One was regarding the idea of waste-gate blown diffusors

And the other was regarding overflow from the air-box when offthrottle

So the waste-gate blown diffusor got me thinking about other ways to blow the diffusor. Then this whole idea of Mercedes blowing the starter motor hole / quasi DDD popped up. Then I thought about the yawning hole in the back of the MB with the as-yet unexplained pipes. Then I thought about the air-box spillage idea and the fact that such a device would conveniently balance out the negative effect of throttle lift if you could somehow pipe it to the same area you were piping your exhaust? A fluidic valve should be able to accomplish this task no?
And then while writing this I thought "hey, wouldn't all this be a great reason for Merc to "alert" the fia to the possibility of throttle over-run as such a system would be in opposition to using the surplus air from the airbox?"
Please criticize my thinking.
