Depends on the supercharger. A roots or Easton blower (like JR) wouldn’t need one, an centrifugal, like the vortech still needs one, this is basically a turbo that is belt driven, not exhaust.....
and yes, there are little speakers that you can put under your hood to make the sound of a blow off valve if you feel it necessary.
Having a real one under my hood, every time i hear one a race usually ensues (unless it is a TT SC300, or some other car that i have not chance in hell to beat in my 1.8), so if you decide to play your little BOV, and then get killed, dont cry. Id laugh at you.
ONEUPSTER THE SPEAKER IDEA IS GHETTO. U DO MAKE A GOOD POINT THOUGH BOUT IF SOMEONE THINKS U HAVE TURBO THEN SPANKS U. GUESS THAT WOULDNT BE GOOD. THE ONLY REASON I ASK IS MOSTLY TO MESS AROUND WITH FRIENDS. OF COURSE IT WOULD ONLY WORK THE FIRST TIME. BUT IT WAS JUST A THOUGHT NOTHING I WAS CONSIDERING.
I think that it is halarious to be honest. Im not shunning the idea, I was just making the comment that if you hit someone with it, they will more that likely want to race you. Then again, some people will be like hell no, that car is turbo. Have fun with it
