    Yeah $400 is a bit much, but I have spent more on less before. Hell I bought my wife a $3000 ring and it didn't make my car go woooosh!

    Sometimes I wonder If the money would have been better spent on the BOV.

    I don't know this for sure, but I thought you have to be in the "industry" to even go to SEMA, incorrect? My cousin lives in Vegas, and said that you can go during the day.. but I have also heard different. Not calling you out on this.. just want to know because i've always wanted to go =)

    Anyone can go to SEMA, to have a booth though is a different story. Only SEMA manufacturers are allowed to have a booth at the show. It is there for everyone in the USA to come a see all the new products that are launching in the coming year.

    Wrong.

    Not anyone can go to SEMA.

    You do have to be in the industry and their screening process is getting quite extensive now, i.e. Business tax #'s, Buisness liscense photo copies, business cards etc. etc.

    I have 3 ins to SEMA. My full time job is with CALTRANS (Cal-dot) as an equipment engineer which automatically gains me entrance, my family auto repair/wheel and tire business that I helpout at when they need me, my own parts business. Its a very good show for networking Vendors get mad when you circumvent the system and are their just to looky loo.

    My fault....I was under the impression that anyone was able to go to the show. I have a couple friends that went to the show this year, but both work for a large shop in my area.

    Yeah every year tourists try to buy tickets or sneak into the show and you always see security guards stop them or bounce them out.

    Blow-off performance?

    Did a search, couldn't quite find anything as to what I'm looking for.
    My question: I'm relatively new to turbo engines, do blow-off valves add any performance whatsoever? Sure, they sound mean as hell, but other than that???
