    Lightbulb Bov

    Ive heard mixed things about BOV's. I heard that it increases boost because the stock one is meant to leak after a certain point. I also heard that it will pro-long the life of the turbo. But after joining on here it seems that everyone says they are bad for the car. I'm new to the whole turbo thing so can anyone please clarify for me? Thanx

    It's bad, doesnt increase boost, and doesnt prolong turbo life.
