    Stoopid BOV question

    So I was sittin' on the can takin' a dump this morning, reading Sport Compact Car when I noticed something strange about a particular Supra. It had a T67 single turbo conversion but it also had 2 BOVs. What's the point of 2 BOVs on a single turbo car? I can't imagine that it could be pushing so much damn boost that 1 BOV is insufficent to vent all the necessary air pressure. Whats the deal?

    I'd like to think that he actualled NEEDED two BOVs to vent his ridiciously high boost levels, but wow... that's really dumb. I hate people.

    I really don't know for sure. Maybe his boost was overwhelming one, and he was getting surging.

    Maybe it's just me, but it seems like EVERY modified Supra I hear has surging. Those things do nothing but make fluttering turbo noises like it's going out of style!

    I have an 05 and I can definitely hear the BPV. When you get on it you hear a high-pitch wooshing (the turbo) and when you shift, the "psssssssh". It's not overly loud but with the windows up you can hear it clearly. With the windows down I can't hear it at all.

    Supposedly this is a 1000hp car so it needs the better flow so it has two godzilla bov's. . but we've got several 1K hp supras in chicago and they seem tow ork just fine with 1 bov. . under the hood.

    i think its more of a bling thing, but if one bov is loud, then two would be really loud. you could scare anyone with that
