I bought the Mopar blow off valve, and it sounds really weird, when I had turbo on my civic you could hear the turbo spool, and then the blow off, but with the one on my SRT4 it just makes a loud gust of air noise. Is that what its supposed to sound like?

Yeah get rid of it then, and say hello to 110hp. What the hell did you expect for a bov that cost $80, and isn't actually a valve but a plate? And if all the parts for this car suck then get your civic back and run it against a srt w/ S3.

Contrary to what some third party vendors think about the MOPAR BOV, it is very functional and serves its purpose. The engineers know what they are doing and the Stage 2 upgrade proves that. The sound totally changes to just a very short bust (tweet) of relief, not the prolong bursts when on Stage 0. I also like the position of the valve being right at the turbo vs down stream. When installed correctly, it works without any issues. :thumbsup:

You just have to weed through some of the nonsense.

It has a slim purpose. ITs main purpose is to make noise. The only benifit i see from it is that you dont get the incoming air crashing with the recirculated air in the inlet of the turbo.

WIth the stock ecu, the valve hangs open. With s1 its alot quicker. Main reason for upgrading to a real bov is due to the added volume you get. Heck, my TT supra came with an actual valve also. It was not part of the turbo though. As soon as i upgraded to an HKS it was night and day on how fast both turbos would recover.

Which is exactly the same purpose of the "real BOV" you talk about, except they won't perform as well as the factory surge valve.

Try learning about different parts before you open up your wallet! If you would do that, you wouldnt even considering buying a Honda(Yes I've owend 2)! But what do I know, your car WILL run faster with all the parts in the Pepboys rice isle! Maybe when you switch back to a Honda, you can get yourself an APC sponsorship and make some real power!

NOpe, your wrong. Take your car and raise the boost to 18psi. Run it with and with out the mopar bov and see the time it takes your needle to go back to 18 after teh shift.

Now put a real bov in your car. You will notice how quicker the boost comes back on. I bought my car to experiment and that I did. I was the first person to install a bov on the car. I installed it on the hot side and the cold side. My best results came from running a real bov in conjunction with the stock surge valve (no bop).
