you didn't hear the turbo??? and how good is your hearing?

fake bov.... i aint too sure of your definition of ricer in the states (vtec stickers on toyota's / big gt race wings on 1.3lt cars / ect?), but from what i can gather, that sounds like the MOST ricer thing in the world. Well maybe just short of mounting a front mount on his car too.


fake bov....lmfao

Well... that and a turbo won't spool (i.e. make noise) at a standstill unless they have a stutter box installed (or some other special launch mechanism). i.e. you wouldn't hear that turbo... and therefore there wouldn't be anything for the BOV to vent either.

what the Fvck? a fake BOV?... i doubt that this is possible...

go get a supercharger like a SC12 and run it on 6 - 8psi and get a BOV, that'll do alright, it also wont ruin your internals or your injectors/ecu, basically, most VL Commys around here with their RB30E engines can handle a stock SC12 supercharger, bolted on, on 6 - 8psi.

They make fake BOV's, they're on eBay and they bolt to the exhaust tip. Has some little venturi on it which apparently gives a BOV sound when you rev the motor. It's held on by one bolt and the instructions tell you to tighten it with pliers... classy.

that's not cool, faking having a turbo ISN'T cool mate, lol.. sorry.. but i don't like it when people are all talk and no walk.

personally, i'd just go the whole sha-bang and get a ****ing f/i kit and get a BOV with it.
