    the light changed, and if someone is that ignorant theres not the time to explain to them. Besides, i think when i reved and it happened he got the point that it's intended.

    I remember when the wrx first came to the states and this guy installed a bov. He said that he was pulling into the gas station when his bov went off. He pulled in to get some gas and this guy that was already parked there said "I think that you may have popped your tire going over that curb." Referring to the bov of course. I didn't know what one was until I got the wrx.

    I don't think I'd hesitate calling someone ignorant who didn't know what a BOV sounded like...You make it sound like its a filthy word! Look it up Anyways...after reading the post, I laughed out loud!

    ** Ignorant** Lacking education or knowledge....Unaware or uninformed...I can say without doubt, I'm pretty ignorant...as are most of us!

    Whenever my dad drives my car he never gets on it because he says he's afraid of my BOV (still stock). He says it makes him jump every time cause he thinks it's him breaking something on my $37,000 car, in which case he would be fed to the family pets.

    Great story eli

    or maybe he knew your car shouldn't make that sound even though you do have a bov

    great fun with the locals

    i absolutely love doing "blow-bys" to the unsuspecting public. i will keep my car in gear longer so that i can shift when i drive by people who are outside. i dont rev to 6k or anything aggressive like that (its a rex, not a stang, haha) but the looks on people's faces when they hear it is priceless. i always get this surprised, WTF look on their faces. they usually look like they are trying to figure out if an automobile actually made the noise, and when they figure that out, their next step is trying to determine what i broke. makes me laugh every time. still haven't ever had anyone actually ask me a Q like urs tho...

    A lot of people dont know BOV's... My dad is a car guy, but he worked out old mustangs and GTO's and such.... We were driving a few months ago and a turbo civic passed us.... the BOV went off and my dad goes "o ****, I think he just blew a hose".... I just laughed and explained that it had a turbo.... He then said "so that little honda is actually fast"?? in a baffled face. I then explained the magic of motor swaps and how light then are... he thought it was really cool

    I have yet to have someone ask me about it, or tell me my car was broken.... but I have recieved odd looks from unknowing people when it vents....

    great story eli!
