some people have bad luck with BOV's, having problems as huge as engine failure, or at the very least, running extremely rich.
BOV's are good for professional racers who run 30psi of boost.
rice = something that makes your car seem or look fast when it adds no performance whatsoever. BOV's are right down there with ridiculous body kits, 34 stickers on the driver's door, horribly painted interiors, and spinners. most people outgrow them by the time they hit puberty.
