    Exclamation metal washers with BOV

    Anyone out there tried this combo yet? Would the BOV reduce heat on the washers giving more hours of life or shim time? I understand on the ceramics but with metal we are dealing with different heat characteristics and wear rates from friction.

    Im running the steel washers with a BOV and vortec sc impeller. So far so good. Pulls 8050-8100 even in the heat.
    But I only have 5 hrs on the washers, so too seeon to tell. (but the ceramics failed after 2 hrs)

    So is a BOV something that should be done with the metal washers or does it not matter ?

    Wasn't someone going to test with thermal paint.
    If someone had thermal paint and a BOV they could do a with and without paint test.
