    nothin big... just your catalytic converter could collect all that excess fuel from being rich, and since cats can heat upwards of 1600 degrees, it could light all that on fire and you could start a car fire, and since it's under the car and heat rises, you could toast your whole ride...

    Overkill? Yes.... A possibility? Yes...

    BOV not blowing off.

    OK the blow off valve is supposed to make this really cool sound of releasing air. My car does that but not all the time. Sometimes its really loud sometimes its soft and sometimes it doesnt do it at all which i think is weird, but maybe im wrong and its normal. But if any1 has an idea why its doing this that would be great! Thanks!

    You better make a video so we can hear if it's cloged
    By just rev. the engine the BOV should be kicking out air as well, right??
    And I guess if it doesnt then it might be cloged?

    I'll see about that video.

    Your car will run like ass with a BOV. The car works on a MAF senssor as opposed to a MAP sensor found on a SRT4. Bottom line get rid of the BOV. click here to hear my BOV http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=2_zkjXVJs4s Played to the max
    lil wayne suxs!!

    I dont know about that I mean my car doesnt run like ass at all. It actually runs really really good! I mean good enough for ppl to be turning there heads and wanting to know every little thing i have! Every1 tells me it sounds and runs really good, but whatever thats your opinion.

    thanks for the help though, i'll check on that cloged bov.
