you can't close your hood because of a dump valve?
How freakin' huge is it?

sorry, but don't know how to tell if that box is borked.

You may start to have problems with your car stalling now. the 2.4 lh system whcih i believe 91 turbos have are very fussy when it comes to losing air, aka through a atmospheric valve. You will go to shift coming off of high boost and the car will stall. Or when you start to come to a stop, the car will stall. The car measures the air in a particular way so with that BOV it may not want to stay running after boost. Just a bit of information if your car has the 2.4 lh system

So you're going to drive around without a hood? What are you going to do next time it rains?

Well im trying to get another pipe to relocate it so i can shut my hood...but its fun to ride without a hood 1) u get an instant notice by people that u are turbocharged for sure. 2) the BOV scares the crap out of blondies..next time it rains im all set with my jetski cover! im sure it will cover it

Well most people allready suspect its turbo charged just for the fact its a saab. And it probably has a turbo badge on it in a few places. And two what if it starts to rain when yoru driving down the road? Pretty screwed then. Also the hood is a very important part of the front impact zone if you get into a crash.
