I think I might give it a try as it sounds fairly simple. I like the thought of having my engine running on clean & cool boost - not to mention the elimination of caked soot in the intake manifold and cylinder heads. If it has the potential for reducing the probability of snapping a glow plug it's already worth the effort to me!

I like the idea of using a diode to reproduce the MAF voltage drop. I wonder if the 0.7V drop of a silicon diode is too high and requires getting the vacuum setting just right for no CEL - is the current too high for a germanium diode? Also, have you considered tapping the EGR transducer signal and do it 'pure electronically'? Not sure of the characteristics of these transducers but I'm up to experimenting...
