are these two the same thing with different names. i have a Greddy blow off valve (made for japanese turbo charged cars) and would like to put it on my supercharged mustang. would it work like a bypass valve?

It believe it would work. Basically they perform the same function of giving the pressureized air in the intake tube a place to go when the throttle plate is slammed shut, such as the end of a burnout or when shifting. It's better to vent this air to the atmosphere than having it bounce back to the compressor blades putting excessive stress on the compressor blades and bearings.
