    Nothing will happen , the boost control solinoid will control the level of boost to the actuator.

    It may make it more agressive thats about it.

    Nothing - it is all ECU controlled.

    Buy an uprated actuator, if your car as been re-mapped it will probably hold better boost higher up the rev range. just got one for mine seems to do the trick

    I think steinmetz are just a styling company. You'll probably find the remap has been done by someone else. 230bhp sounds like a phase 1 remap anyway, torque figure will probably be higher than that.
