I need to replace my DV and I'm considering a BOV. I've got a EVO CAI and wanted to get something straight before I decide what to do. A BOV releases all the pressure into the atmosphere; so therefore, am I correct in thinking that I will not have a pssst sound out of my intake if I install a BOV? Just want to make sure; I don't need to sound like my car is about to blow up every time I shift

Re: Question for those with BOVs.. (BamaJedi)

You will lose the current PSSST sound out of your intake when off throttle, but gain a zinging sort of WHOOOOOOOSH sound from the BOV when off throttle...
It isnt TOO loud... but that is really something that is subjective, isnt it? Anyhow... I love mine.. and think its great... go for it!

Re: Question for those with BOVs.. (Shaka)

Just curious. For those who had EVO/DV, when I had mine it was pretty loud!
Is the HKS louder?
