    Even though its not needed, are there any negatives to installing if one just wants the sound?

    That question was answered in the link that brfatal provided.

    You may also want to explore the links in my signature.

    and btw this thread will be merged with "The big BOV thread" because (not to be mean but...) the same questions about this have been asked a billion times before and will be a billion times again.

    Welcome.

    If you perform the intake silencer delete, you'll be able to hear the BPV discharge air into the intake.
    easiest way to make stock recirc bov louder
    It might be the sound you're looking for without causing the rich condition for which VTA BOVs are famous.

    Not sure, but it said the following:

    Also... I know there's a huge topic on blowoff valves, but in short: Harmful or not? I read they could throw the CEL or cause extra fuel to be deposited into your muffler/exhaust line, but then I read, "No problems here!" I mean... you just have to love that P-TSH! sound.
    Problems, not if it's adjusted properly. Maybe premature spark plug replacement but that's it. If it's not adjusted right, yes it will cause problems. But there are many reasons to not bother wasting your money on that junk. Aftermarket valves require setup and maintenance while the stock one does not. Also, loud VTA BoVs are extremely obnoxious and generally universally frowned upon by experienced people in the automotive world as nothing but a "hey look at me!" mod.

    Also, the reason for the recirculation of air back into the intake in the 1st place is to help keep the turbo spinning in between shifts...
