BOV....Yes or No?
Correct me if i'm wrong but shouldn't a Blow off valve reduce the stress on the SC clutch reducing the likleyhood of clutch failure? It seems to me thats why there is a clutch there in the first place. Anybody running one? I haven't seen much talk of it?

Some say yes some say no...I want to know if mine is even working? I can't hear anything so how would you know if its working? I've done the power pipe and water box mods so that's all I can hear.
I went with the BOV when I installed the intercooler and its plumbing. Figuring better to be safe while I'm at it. I don't know of any performance loss by running one, so why not other than cost.

Yeah i hear that. I ordered one from Hp Marine when i ordered my SC clutch rebuild/update kit for my 03 GTX SC. The stocker went out at 145 hours of hard use. I have yet to try it and haven't been in the water since the 4th of july (yeah nice day for it to crap out). Now i'm waiting to see if i should order that expensive ass "isoflex grease" and "super lube" called for in the directions or just use something else to get me in the water by this weekend. I would expect you would hear something out of the BOV though. At least a nice lil hiss when you let off the throttle. But hey, cares as long as it's working. Even though that would be a sure sign. I've been around plenty of turboed and SCed cars before and you know when theirs is workin.
