you'll need a fake intercooler to go along with that fake bov ricer boy, this ranks right up there with having a roll call of shit you don't have, quit faking and do something to your car that actualy improves it

wow, i really really REALLY hate ricers........i think you should first find out what a BOV does, before you just go spouting off terms.....
i bet you think you detonate when the air temp gets below freezing too..

Actually, a bov releases the left over pressure after the throttle body closes between shifts, which makes it so you don't have any compressor surge(which shortens the life of your turbo).

Compressor surge is what happens when the left over boost has nowhere to go but back into the compressor side of the turbo, causing the turbine wheel/fins, whatever you want to call it, to turn the opposite direction from the direction it travels to make positive pressure (which inturn can do what lablue said)

damn you guys are some hardcore racers... i wish i could be as cool as you
Basicly you are saying that you want to add a blow off valve to sound cool, but if you are at a light with me you are going to need more than just sounding cool to beat me. Be real, do something that will add something we all are not going to laugh at!
