    Blow off valves(especially 100% atmospheric like the HKS) are not a good thing for our car's which comes with a factory recirculating valve (recirculates the blow off air back into the intake rather than into the atmosphere). You probably should have a read a bit about BOV's before you went and bought one... Go read the "Big BOV Thread". Sorry you found out too late man ...

    Probably means it is not venting, which means your screwing up your turbo at least.

    I totally missed the most obvious thing which you just pointed out... This could be more devastating than I previously stated... take that thing off before you overboost like a mofo!!
