I made it to about 4:00, and it was some of the least dumbass stuff I have seen on the net regarding BOVs.

BOVs are essential on 'pretty-much' all turbos cars. How many people run like 5 psi anymore?
Stupid fluttering surge sounds are a bad thing.
Venting to atmo does **** for power.


Maybe I missed the lameness, but thats good to have for all the F&F types out there.

Lay the argument to rest and forget that it ever happened! That was pretty funny! I think those guys get it, cause you know there was some retards out there who really wanted a BOV on their non turbo cars, so those guys mount it to a bicycle to purposely show how gay a bov on a non turbo really is.

I'm surprised they made it work and they made it sound fairly real. I was thinking they would just mount a big *** speaker on there lol.

Dude, that ******* bike is awesome. I would love to take that to the track to ride around the pits, or bring to car meets to get laughs. Put "JDM" **** all over it.

Those 2 guys suck, and that video was entire waste of time. The more he talked, the more I wanted to punch him in the face.

Them civic guys will have some good competition if u do that.

what i would do in the video above is just hook up the bov do the intake manifold instead of having a different switch.
