The product reviews show a great response from buyers. Suggested open air intake upgrade along with this part, must be nice ;)

No.

There's no reason to change it unless you start to hear it go bad...and you will. That's when you'll know why it's sometimes called a "hooter valve"

A bad BPV makes a noise like a duck being strangled....

If you were putting out more boost with an aftermarket turbo, then maybe...but I know guys who have used the Viggen/Aero BPV up to 300 hp.

If you have an open air intake it makes the boost dump sound much more crisp; it looks nice under the hood, is more reliable as has been said and is serviceable. I honestly haven't noticed and detectable performance gain though. Cheers.

th


Im not really looking for it in terms of performance gain..I read all of the reviews and I was just thinking that my car is a 2000 and it's has a lot of miles on it.. that it would be time to change it but if it's not necessary at the moment then I'll spend that 150 on someone thats more importantt. Thanks guys

Well you don't have to be that car savvy, if you know how to change a bulb, ultimately you can install an HID kit! ;) Also, unless you turn the screws on the headlight casing, your really not going to be able to knock the headlights out of alignment. But if you don't feel comfortable doing it, 75 isn't too bad of a price.

P.S. I don't think our cars are visible to cops... Every time I'm speeding with a buddy and a cop guns us, I never get pulled over! It's bizarre... I've stopped being so careless since the 3rd time as I feel I may be running out of luck... :roll:

It's not just cops... NOBODY notices our cars. It's great! I don't have to freak out about it when I park, I don't have people bugging me about my MODZZ, and I don't get people revving their cars at intersections.

Everyone in this thread that mentioned never being noticed by police have just set themselves up to be pulled over this weekend. :cheesy:

... but add me to that list because it's true, the police never look twice at me in my 9-5.

I did have a random guy yell "Nice SAAB!" across a parking lot one night, but it turned out that he was driving a SAAB too.
