: Turbosmart Blow off Valve Type 1 - sound?

3rd March 2003, 09:41 PM
Hi guys..

I bought a Turbosmart BOV Type 1. Basically the cheapest in their line. I notice that there is basically no sound to it. It has the loudness of a cat's hiss.

I've had other turbo cars with aftermarket BOVs and none sounded as weak as this.

Is it just because the BOV is cheap or do all BOVs on Saabs barely sound like anything?

Ive had experience with the turboSmart BOV your talking about and im pretty sure you have to adjust it, its probobly not even opening because its set too stiff.silly question but did you hook up the vacuum line?
