Hey guys, i thought my BOV was really quiet because i had an air leak at the turbo and at the throttle body, that has been fixed, but the BOV is not as loud as it was on my buddy's stock dodge stealth. Could this be becaust i have too many adjustment washers in it? I think i have 2 or 3.

could be I don't have any on my 90t. Same bov. different boost levels between cars will make a diff. in loudness too.
Example is one releasing 20 psi and other is at 8? Which one you think will be louder? Ya know. I know mine is loud as shit at 15 psi. I scare the elderly and small children. Not lying!! :)

mine is at 12 psi on an HKS SSBOV...i love when i accidently freak out the elderly...the little kids back off the street when they hear the PSHHH. hilarious reactions.

i remember the speed limit was 30mph...i started from second to build boost a lil quicker...got to 25mph and PSSHHHH and the eldery people were trying to tell me i was speeding. :D

I got pulled over by a cop because he said I was "squeeling" my tires when it was just my BOV. I had to prove it to him to get out of the ticket.

yeah dude, why would you go off in first to do that? youd accelerate pretty hard to get a bov off. :rolleyes:

which is why i started in SECOND..build boost on lower rpm and pop off at 2.5k rpm without having to SPEED my way to 30mph.
i though you understood that.

a lot of things effect how a bov sounds.
boost, turbo, position, adjustment.
ive noticed the closer to the ic outlet the louder they are.
nick had a ssqv mounted right off of his ic outlet and it was so loud i could hear him sev cars behind me doing 75mph on the xway.

try adding or subtracting washers. aslo, make sure u dont have any boost leaks



you know the bov is also illegal and he could have busted you for that? :)
Illegal? Based on what? The sound they make? Decibles? Where is this a law anywhere? Only certain states? I have blown off many times accidentally next to cops and not had problems.

Well, on the box for the Greddy bov it says "for off road use only" and another sticker said "not for highway" or something to that effect.

opps, i guess it might be something with CA smog laws. here, and maybe other places, BOV's venting to the atmosphere is what is illegal, not the noise they make

fmic's are illegal too :)
yeah bov's are illegal because they blow off metered and cause you to run rich momentarily -- thus affecting emissions.

FMIC's are legal, but only if the company got a CARB number. It's incredibly stupid since they have no impact on emissions (kind of like cold-air intakes). IIRC, HKS is the only company that bent over and took it up the ass from CARB and got a #

It happens, especially if you live in an area where they are cracking down on "street racers"
