Supercharger with Boost controller anyone?

Good morning all, love the forums, this is my first ever post so be gentle on me :-).

First the car, 2012 Callaway Camaro. This Callaway conversion has the Magnuson TVS 2300 Supercharger. I upgraded from its original SC572 form. Kooks Headers, 1050XD injectors, E85 sensor, 3.5 Pulley gives me 8.5 lbs of boost, Aux fuel pump kit similar to DSX. This puts me at 570 WHP.

I am about to do some additional mods, including a new smaller upper pulley to push more boost.

The question I have is has anyone used, or heard of anyone using the SmoothBoost electronic boost controller on their supercharger to control the bypass valve.

The idea and the concept sounds good, and logically it makes sense, but I haven't seen anyone that actually uses it on any GM cars and I wonder why. It would just be nice to be able to open that valve a bit during normal driving when I don't need to be pushing 10-12 lbs of boost every time I hit the gas pedal to pass someone on the freeway.

Any feedback would be appreciated!
