Stock B.O.V.

Post by Joshcornkid » Wed Sep 11, 2019 5:56 am

Is the stock Blow Off Valve adequate for the +6psi tune?

If not, what then is an acceptable upgrade? I can only find 2 direct bolt-on's available.
- The Boomba is an atmospheric vent, which isn't suggested.
- The only other option I can find is the TurboXS, which says it's a Hybrid recirculating some back into the Turbo and some to the atmosphere.

+ Does anyone have any experience with the TurboXS B.O.V?

There's no good reason to replace the factory BOV. People only do it for the noise.

Is it possible to hear the stock BOV? I think I'm hearing it even at full throttle. If it is was defective would I have a CEL?

If there are no errors then there is probably not any issue.
