That is definitely unfortunate. At least you know it is there. That was always enough for me.

Well I decided to stop pretending to be a Finnish mechanic and be a real one today and install my boomba BPV.

Install was fairly smooth. It was kind of a bitch getting the bracket back on w/ the longer bolts and those sleeves because I couldn't see shit once I got my hands in there. And there were vacuum lines that were always getting in the way. But its in!!

Look at this stock junk.





Somewhere back there there's a turbo........



Lookin good! Now to cover it up w/ my tire




What surprised me even more is when I fired it and gave it a couple revs. It sounds mostly the same as the stock unit, but it definitely has a lot more POP now. Honestly this is about perfect for me. Who the hell needs a bov?



I'm also going to sound slightly crazy when I say this, but under certain loads, it makes a noise that sounds eerily similar to a supra w/ a tial bov, kinda like this, except not as pronounced.



I tried to take a couple vids while driving but I just couldn't capture it. All in all, im going to be quite happy w/ this. Thanks again @Boomba Racing!!!

Turbo noises give James May fizzy feelings.
