    Blow off valve question...

    I dont need a debate over running a blow off valve or not, just have a simple question and i searched with no answer... I have the Riva BOV which comes with a filter on the pressure relief opening... Why in the world is there a filter? With the filter off it sounds so much louder/better... In all of my experience with BOVs on vehicles not once have a seen a filter? its not like its sucking in air ever... can i just not run this filter? thanks guys... Kyle

    FYI....Make sure your rubber "O" ring is still on the plunger... Mine had come off numerous times causing a boost leak..
