No, that's not how it works. The restriction in the CDV does not reduce pressure, it reduces flow rate, and that only in one direction (for the most part). By restricting fluid travel from the slave...

The first, natural reaction of the non-gearhead is to freak out and curse the dealer to the moon and back, when they see that laundry list. It's the dealer's job to point out...
