Default BOVs scare the crap otta me

Tonight as I was driving home, I was just cruising over some RR tracks and I heard a PSST, PSST behind me. I thought I had a flat from the tracks.

It turns out it was the sound of the BOV from the WRX behind me. That ****** scared the **** otta me - especially since he was so close on my ***.

As a turbo newb, that's the SECOND time a BOV scared me like that.

Actually there is a youtube vid of a mk4 silver 1.8t vw owned by billy tylaska in the alamo parking lot with the duck-call. We laughed pretty hard that night.

The Mopar BOV on my PT Cruiser is very loud and can be set off at will. Sounds like air brakes on a bus. I have turned many heads with it.

If I had a supercharger I'd probably get scared everytime I heard a BOV too.

I like it when people put train horns on their cars, they've made me jump. Never a BOV though.
*****.

I'm working towards a silent bov, so when someone asks "what you got in there?" I can say "port and polish" and they won't suspect a thing. :gay:

Really? Interesting.

I used my BOV to shut up some kids in a Camaro V6 running duals. I was passing them and they were pointing at my car and laughing, then they floored it and flew by. I let them get a little ahead, laid into it, then blew off when I was right next to them. Nothing as fun as watching a smile turn upside down!!!

If I had some ******* riding my *** at night and it sounded like I had a flat, it wouldn't matter what I was driving.

Funny you should mention that. It looks like be getting a BIGGER pulley soon. lol

FWIW, the BOV is probably the biggest reason I chose SC over turbo. That's just too "in your face" for me. Little did I know that not all BOVs are that loud.

I'm getting bored.

As I said, at the time I was trying to decide between turbo and SC, I knew nothing about FI so I had no idea that the loud BOV was just the way turbos were.

Now though, I'm thinking about a turbo as my next project IF I ever have the time and the money - which is why I;m on this Forum.
