    is the blow off valave debate still going on?

    i havent been on the site in a long time and one of the biggest debates was whether to use or not use a bov. i have a b kit with no bov and read the whole bulletproofing thread and it mentions to run one. after so many people running high boost has an answer ever surfaced or is it still personal preference

    I think by now it is personal preference. Some people run them some don't. I will be running one, I run in the ocean a lot and am on and off the throttle constantly. It will help prevent supercharger clutch and washer wear, plus they sound awesome.

    Keep in mind that thread was 3 years ago. So im sure people opinions on them have changed since then.

    i ride the ski in the ocean but could care less about the sound, my thought was that because im coming off the water to retain that boost would be more beneficial both performance wise and not making the supercharger slip but i guess theres still no clear answer

    I disagree just to disagree with you! Bunk! I will try running with one with and without to see the difference in boost! Just for something to do!

    I had thew Riva one fitted with my S3 charger and leaked all the lime on acceleration but they are just a plastic one. I was thinking of putting a Motorsport one on it such as a Forge one the debate i was having was do i choose a single piston or a twin piston dumpvalve...im going to stay well clear of the diaphragm ones! I ride in the sea all of the time so i would say it was benificial if you buy the right one that won't leak!
