if you get a bov don't go cheep you really get what you pay for. I was told to stay w/ aps or turbosmart, just passing on info. I was told that those 2 bov are the only to that don't have problems. like I said just passing on info as it was told to me...

Also do a search on it and I am sure that there is a FAQ on bov. look around see what you can find.

Pros:
-None other than that ricetastic Pssstt.

Cons:
-Runs rich between shifts.
-CANNOT be tuned for rich issue.
-Aftermarket models tend to leak which causes your turbo to work harder to hit your boost target. Harder working turbo causes higher intake charge causing you to be mor prone to det.

AVO BOV is a direct replacement but again why change it out then. Spend the money on sway bars you will enjoy it more.

you're kidding me, right? i didn't ask a question about BOV's, i asked if there's a way to contain these threads because they happen so frequently.


congratulations on your first flaming.

Although he wasn't so nice/sweet/compassionate about it, I think he's trying to say that it doesn't matter how many forums you have. People will still post these silly questions. All you can do is suck it up and direct them to the correct area.

My suggestion would be to save up a bit more... and go for the SPT intake.
Performance gain, and the stock recirculating more be more audible.

Can we PLEASE get some kind of code written into this site where newbies cannot post a new question untill they have reviewed, ALL FAQ posts
I'm not a moderator but DAMN! people... how many time does the same question have to be posted in a given day or week before it sinks into the OP that this question has OBVIOUSLY been asked before..
Do these guys know FAQ stands for Frequently Asked Questions????????

These kinds of people shouldn't own these cars. I don't even have one and I know not to put a BOV on it. The next person that asks a BOV question should give me his/her car instead of me saving up for a down payment. I'll take what I've saved and get EM first.

To all the folks in here bitching about another BOV question. Looks it's real easy problem to fix stay out of the newbie forums. There done, no need to come in here and express how you think the OP is a retard or OMFBBQBOV. Just move along and let the n00b section be just that for NOOBS! There is a very good reason why these guys think a BOV is a good idea look in any modification magazine and there all over the place, this months Subiesport even has a article with the sentence "no car is complete without a BOV" . I don't blame people for coming in and asking about them, point them to the faq and walk away no need to be a douche bag every time someone asks about BOV's It will never quit so move along or get used to it! Or better yet do something proactive about it and stop the QQ.

can't tune for a BOV on a MAF based system.

and there is NOTHING an aftermarket BOV can do better than our stock BPV, need to run a lot of boost? fine, modify the stocker.
