It's true - I put one on and reverted to a recirculating type because my passenger kept saying 'bless you' each time I changed gear...dlb said:I think it makes you sound like a ricer and it gets annoying hearing it everytime you let off the throttle
I've had re-circ and have that now...I had a stock valve with a check valve on the outlet, and I had a BLITZ BOV (which sounded awesome, and gave me all sorts of looks) I had NO idling issues but I did have stalling issues and spooling issues , and fueling issue with every setup I tried that vented to the atmosphere....if and when I get standalone setup i will likely get a BOV, but until then....:nono;DanF. said:B5S- IRC, you had a BPV (not BOV) hooked up ( er, unhooked i think) in a way that it acted like a quasi-BOV? Like a plug in the intake hose right off the turbo, and the BPV venting to the atmosphere.... or something like that?
Correct-o-mundo....senor..... and with a BIG Turbo and a RRFPR, I found that with a BOV, it would go something like this, ease into boost=all good, BUT Drive hard, SHIFT, blow off, dump tons of air, fuel already metered, rich state, punch it again, boost starts to rise, fuel pressure rises quickly, SUPER RICH, Bogs down, can't get full spool and car wouldn't accelerateDanF. said:You're running LH 2.2 right?
