As I understand it power boost valves are adjustable whereas boost valves are preset to the correct pressure of the vehicle - http://www.motorsportworld.co.uk/frame-detail.asp?PAGE=/tuningtips-engine.htm

Uh... Because he wants to control air pressure in a turbocharged vehicle so as not to destroy his turbo?

nope, according to the link above, that thing is not related to turbo. It's a fuel regulator.
