In theory over spool. The idea is a full charged charge pipe creates enough drag there it keeps the turbo from spinning too fast.

Back in my honda tuner car days guys would slap on their turbo and run them to the tuner without a charge pipe. I've heard more than one tuner insist this not be done for fear of ruining a turbo
Nobody exists on purpose. Nobody belongs anywhere. We’re all going to die. Come watch TV.
