Re: Re: Re: HKS SSQV BOV
this has always puzzled me....how come then everyone else in the world uses BOVs....all the top tuners...top import racers??...
Because they sound cool and they can get away with it.
People who are dedicated drag racers are not as hindered by the BOV as "normal people".
They race at one PSI and they shift at WOT on all shifts, so they will not necessarily see the ill affects of the BOV.
In fact, a good drag racer barely "blows off" at all.
The fact is the 99% of BOVs out there are based on a spring design. That being said, they will have a limited range of "proper operation" based on spring tension.
You can not run too much boost on the OEM valve. It will never leak (unless it is broken).
Springs will also never
respond as fast as air can.
There is only one way that the OEM valve could possibly
need to be upgraded ... and that is if yo uwere running a HUGE amount of boost and a HUGE amount of volumn .... and the sheer quantity was great than what the OEM could evacuate.
How mcuh is that? .... a lot. I doubt anyone would ever see it.
