Default blow off valve crew

Do you get tired of the noise? Its been about 8 years since I had a BOV on a car, and I'm thinking I'll get tired of it. Your thoughts?

Just don't boost if its annoying.... then listen to it when having fun with the Go pedal.

The dsm bov on my civic... opens and whistles under high vac... thats annoying... but the blowoff under full boost runs is not.

Yeah, sometimes I get tired of my BOV, then I change my tampon. Is this really a question?

Actually Philip is using "jesus" as an expletive, if he were speaking to Jesus, which is what you are implying, the sentence structure would require a comma after the name.

A few examples:

"Jesus shut the **** up." would be semantically similar to "Damn go **** yourself."

The words "jesus" and "damn" are just used to add emphasis to the sentence.

"Jesus, shut the **** up." would be a request directed at Jesus to stop talking.

That clear everything up?

Actually, I would find your comments much more helpful if you could provide textual reference links.

Thanks.

If you're worried about noise perhaps you shouldn't have gotten a Miata in the first place. Mine vibrates, buzzes, has wind noise, engine noise, etc. If I wanted something quiet I would have gotten a Camry. My mom has one and whenever I drive it I am constantly checking the tach to make sure it's still actually running. You could just brush the sand off your ****.

Actually, you are incorrect. You see you could not tell Jesus that in simple English. The fact is, Jesus spoke Aramaic. So if you said those words to Jesus he would just look at you in bewilderment.

You are assuming that Philip meant THE Jesus, and further you assume that he was a real person (Jesus, not Philip).

Maybe Philip was speaking to a Mexican fellow named Jesus (hey-zeus).

Either way Hustler is once again being a *****, I can't imagine what he'll be like if he actually gets the kit in the car. He'll probably pee in his panties everytime he fires it up and scream each time the BOV goes Pffffft.
