    Huh? I'm kindof confused here. Thought the turbo was supposed to build up pressure and the BOV (blowoff valve) always goes Whoooosh! I believe some bov's can be adjusted for slightly different sound but it's still gonna go Whooosh. Explain question a little better.

    That's kinda what a BPV does.... If it's more audible than it usually is then you should probably check the recirc line running from the BPV back to the intake, it may have popped off somewhere.

    Oh, I may have read it wrong I thought he said he had a BOV, not a BPV,
    If its the BPV making a lot of noise then yes follow Anub1s advice. I was just thinking that the BOV was the part making the noise..... my bad

    A lot of people interchange BOV and BPV mistakenly. I just assumed that he was talking about a stock vehicle. If he had a BOV I would think that he would know what it is.

    Very True..... but there are a lot of people who are buying modded vehicles as well so the car may be modded and it may have a BOV so I guess until the OP tells us we shall never know..... lol

    And I thank you for the help you have given me in the past, it was really appreciated.

    if he's on the stock BPV, he may have an intake/silencer delete. that will make a pretty loud whooshing sound when you accelerate then let off the gas.


    OP- give us more info...

    year of car
    mods
    etc.

    just sounds to me like the BOV is doing what its suppose to be doing? take it off and put back on the stock BPV if this sound bothers you...
