I have a GFB BOV that I just set to 100% vent ( just wanna see how loud it is ). I'm pretty sure they are legal. I've had my hood popped by cops twice now and they didn't say anything about it, probably because they didn't know what it was.

Bov is not legal anywhere. Because if fully vents into the air. Well a friend was saying something about it. Its illigal because its not good for the enviroment. Also he said you wont pass emmisions with it. Im not sure though. But I'm pretty sure bov's are not legal anywhere. Dont worry though, its not like there gonna give you a ticket for it.

No offense to you, but your friend doesn't really know what he is talking about. BOV's let off only compressed air, as in Nitrogen/Oxygen. BOV's effects on emmissions, I don't know, but they do absolutely no harm to the environment.

Maybe he was thinking about open air wastegates which are far from legal.

Somebody correct me if Im wrong

Yes, a BOV only releases air into the atmosphere, not anything harmful.
