BOV advice anybody?

And yet another question... Should I be running a Blow Off Valve? My turbo is non-wastegated BTW. There are times when I get out of the throttle at full boost and don't want to break anything. That WOOP WOOP WOOP sound gives me the willies.

Thanks much fellas

Re: BOV advice anybody?

BOV's don't work on our trucks because these engines don't have a throttle body. BOV's function off pressure spikes on the compressor side of the turbo. Since these engines don't have a throttle body with a butterfly valve that closes the intake, there isn't as much of a pressure spike as you would see on a gas engine. The only way to get a BOV to work is to hook up an electronic unit that opens up when you let off the accel pedal, but even then it isn't worth the high cost and won't help anything.

To test, accelerate your truck hard, then just suddenly let off the pedal and watch the boost gauge. You won't see much of a spike. Now, do that with a turbocharged gas engine.........

I got one, I also have a throttle body on my 6.0L, lucky me. If I didn't the boost backs out through the compressor and out of my air filter. So I save the turbo, and vent to atmosphere from a location that does no harm.
