    cmon guys

    Next time will you please use the the search button instead, I mean cmon it's in the FAQ thread.
    Blow off valve on a stock engine
    Pros:
    Cool sound

    Cons:
    Run rich between shifts
    Could cause long term engine problems
    Not necessary until you're running 20+lbs of boost
    Decreased gas mileage

    Blow off valve on a modified engine w/ turbo upgrade
    Pros:
    Ability to hold more boost (20+lbs)
    Cool sound -- commonly reffered to as a "show off valve"
    Give yourself some deserved bling bling for running an upgraded turbo

    Cons:
    Still might run rich, but with engine management you could help to tune that problem out.
    Still could cause long term engine problems...but when you've done everything to upgrade your turbo, you're running that risk anyway.
    Decreased gas mileage - due also to added fuel (larger injectors) w/ engine management to feed the upgraded turbo more air and fuel.


    Things to think about....
    A lot of people don't like BOV's since it causes problems. try www.blowoffvalves.com
