    Some of my favorite BOV responses.

    As long as you set it to 50/50 you'll be fine.

    As long as you are protuned.

    I know a guy who said it's ok.

    What are you all talking about?!!

    If you have an SRT4, with the baddest BOV out there and are pro-tuned,
    What need is there to worry about water?

    You can WALK on water!!

    (so you could certainly drive on water)

    Cleaning a Bov???

    Bought a Bov used for my Impreza. Never had a Blow off Valve and I thought I'd go ahead and get one then wear it out and then get rid of it. It's one of those phases I go through. Anyways I bought this thing used and I'm not sure how it's supposed to sound when it functions right. Like I notice people free reving and you can hear the bov. You can't hear mine when you do that. I don't really care for just reving my engine but I wanted to make sure it was functioning properly before I go any further with it. And it's weird because at like 7 - 8 lbs of boost it won't make any noise. But at like 3 - 4 it'll flutter. Then at full boost it's a sharp quick sound. It's a Turbo XS Type H. Just wanted to know if it's working right or if it needs cleaned.
