Exclamation Should i blow off or bypass??????

Any opinions would b greatly appreciated! I love tha sound of blow off valves but dont know which is better, blow offs or my stock bypass? do blow off valves hurt your car in any way? the sooner you help the sooner im either blowin or bypassin.

running a BOV W/O tuning for it CAN lead to a rich condition, rough idle etc. I however have ran a SSQV for almost 2 years with out any issues. it is up to you if you like the sound. See if someone around you has one you can swap out for a while and see if your car runs different.

And yes this has been covered a bunch. Search for BOV and user name Cosmo, he really knew his stuff

Yes a bov is a great sound but yes you will have issues. My buddy is running the ssqv as well
with no problems. I just cannt seem to get anything to work. I have used his HKS one with idle issues as well as a twin vent or 50-50 BOV from GFB, no matter what setting its at I always end up with a little compresser surge at low boost. So I said #uck it with BOV and stayed with the stock BPV. If you really want the whoosh sound get a good short ram intake like SPT which I have (and love it) or Cobb, I know there others but I love the SPT
