BOVs Are Fun
The BOV is open to debate weather it is a necessity or novelty. Jeff from Spartan
has indicated that there is no real need for the BOV since his turbos have survived 70,000 or so hard miles without one and are fine. I don't believe there is a documented case of turbos in a 6.4 going south from not having a BOV. I enjoy having the BOV since the sound produced when letting out of the throttle at about 48-50 psi will pretty much send the Mitsubishi or Subaru you just dusted right into the ****weeds. In my case it is 75% novelty and 25% necessity, but only time will tell in both figures.
I just copied my response from another forum. Sorry for any redundancies.
