    Blow Off Valves????

    Read the threads I could find through search funtions...but cannot seem to find a consensus? Do I need B.O.V. and if so which one? I have stage 1 RXP, adding RR I/C next week, probably Riva Rear Air Kit, 42# injectors, S3 soon to follow...I am also installing new metal washers, spring washers, and needle bearings so stock S/C should be 'like new' until S3 finds it's way into there...

    What is Jerry's opinion on B.O.V.? He got my S/C washer parts here next day....Jerry is awesome, I am addicted to Greenhulk.net...at least I accept it

    The best I have heard it, if you keep your stock washers you need it, if you replace them you don't.

    My opinion is have one anyway. Just the ability to unload trapped pressure when in quick off throttle situations is reason enough for me. Seems to be added protection.

    Yes of course I have metal washers, I think anyone who doesn't switch should have their forum membership revoked...I tend to agree, if you connect it correctly (no boost leaks) it seems to be a great addition...why all the bad press then? What does Jerry say...does he have them?

    i remember seeing on another thread some racers tested it and said if you have bearing and metal washers upgrade its best to not use a bov as the clutch will work better ,but if you dont have both these mods its best to run a bov,i got one, havent fitted it yet but i dont have bearings upgrade

    I'm not trying to put words in the mans' mouth, but the last time we had this conversation in depth, Jerry Gaddis' opinion was they are not needed and he does not run one on any of his skis. I'm to lazy to read through all the posts and find his exact quote. I think they are a needless expense and many a person has lost ceramics with a BOV. People just assume they protect ceramics because Riva says so without any facts or examples to back it up.

    I couldn't find the thread but I recall reading a post that someone stated that using a BOV would increase the wear on the clutch washer's by approx 50%.

    I don't know if there was any data to support this claim but it would seem to make sense that releasing the trapped pressure would put less wear on the clutches. However, I am just learning about these ski's so what the heck do i know.

    I just know that I am totally addicted to this site. Who needs porn when you have greenhulk.net!

    Thanks NCHeel, there were the answers I was looking for...I think.

    To any others interested NCHeel has a link in his post that is great, you must read the whole thread as opinions change from start to finish as more research is done...

    No problem, I needed to stop this thread. This horse has already been beat to death.
