Might be thinking of someone else but I could swear I saw Cop say he used the active style bov (oiled flavor). Not 100% certain though.

sorry for the delay guys...here's the original post that was moved to the "steam room". As you can see i was somewhat "upset" at the time i wrote it...

I've had enough with this freaking company!!! All they want is to use customers for their money and screw them out of as much of it as possible!!!
I went in for a warranty claim on my car because the bearings on the turbo went. They call me the following day stating that THE ADDITION OF MY BLOW OFF VALVE CAUSE THE TURBO TO SEIZE!! WTF!!! Caliming that when the BOV releases the pressure and allows the turbo to keep spinning, that due to rpm on the motor falling there is not enough oil pressure to lubricate the turbo!
They're basically claiming their crappy components breaking on a wuality aftermarket product that could not possibly have caused the problem. When they told me this it blew my freaking mind.

Once again Chrysler has screwed over another customer...I hope these people get hit by falling airplane parts!

And there it is...

Sorry to hear this.. sounds very unfair.. Wonder what would have happened if it had been a BOV Mopar that they istalled? I guess that they don't realize that the BOV is a good part to add to the engine...??


On the airplane parts!! just as long as it is not off my aircraft! I would be very upset.... I have lots of PT Parts to still buy!

Moondoggie!
