Has anyone used the turbonetics BOV? I know they dont really do much as far as performance goes, and yes they do sound cool but would it help with turbo bark? If it does i would say that its money well spent being that the turbonetics is only around 250 bucks. Also how much of a pain is it to DIY?

I think I looked into them before I bought my BD, it was like 250 for the valve and another 3 for the electronics.... Ended up being the same price as the BD

BD one isn't bad at all once it's welded to the pipe.... Electronic wiring is pretty easy

Its a Greddy BOV. There is a few guys running blow off valves using drive pressure (since there is always more drive pressure than boost while on the throttle) to keep the valve closed and when you let out (drive pressure drops instantly) the boost blows the valve open. you basically run a copper tube from your exhaust manifold, wrap it around your AC line to cool off the gasses, connect a plastic tube to the copper tube, connect the plastic tube to the top inlet on the BOV. PM me if you want more details

Cooling the copper tube w/ the a/c lines wouldn't really work in the winter if you didn't live down south

if its 40* outside i think the air on the copper line would cool it enough.
