    i originally had the Riva, rthen tossed on an XS cooler...ran without it for 2 weekends, could hear it chirping away inside WITH the metal washers....so I got an aftermarket adjustable one and ran it at MudBug....not one issue....

    Thats the first issue i have heard of with a Pro Series BOV. Normally they are trouble free. They are actually a very high quality Vortech billet BOV. Please call Bubba in tech support at Riva as im sure he would like to see it and i'm sure he will send you out a new one.

    no problem...Mine came a little stiff, so I undid the adjustment screw and pushed up on the valve...then it worked fine...

    so this stops chirping when coming un-hooked? I never had the chirping noise until I got metal washers..Is that what it is?
