Stage 1 and BOV are separate items, that I understand, but what is BOV? Must you, if you are getting Stage 1, get the BOV? (You're welcome to kick me, as I realize this may be a retarded question but I just simply missed out on the BOV.)

A BOV is supposed to realease excess boost levels between shifts so as to prevent backspin of the turbines by the sudden stop in airflow. Whe the throttle body closes there is no where for all the boost to go, so the BOV vents it to the atmosphere. It allows the turbine to keep spinning between shifts, resulting in great turbo response while going through the gears. If you plan on increasing the boost in any way, i suggest you get some sort of BOV

I understand the BOV is noisy. Beside the noise, are there any downside issues associated with the BOV?

Thanks Cop Tzer! ... I now understand. What type of BOV would you suggest? Where do you get one?

Get the Mopar BOV it is the easiest to install.
It works great.

The noise factor is very minimal and not a consistent sound, the sound of a spray paint can "PSHHHH...", upon rapid deceleration, or after rapid acceleration. If you are driving in traffic you would expect to hear it sparingly.

The mopar BOV is the most cost efficient and is an easy bolt on. I personally am not running a mopar BOV, due to preference. Also, since my boost controller is direct to the manifold and would wear out the stock surge valve very fast i completely disconnected the stock surge valve hence eliminating the poissibility of using the mopat BOV. Under high boost these stock parts WILL most likely leak and break very quickly. Hence i chose to go with a good aftermarket BOV from Turbo XS. I think that in the long run this will provide me with a better platform for high boost. If you are simply looking for light bolt on mods with medial boost increases then the mopar BOV is for you!!! Good luck on your decision, afterall that's half the fun of modding!!

Where can you get the MOPAR BOV?? Does any one knows a link to buy it and see the specs of it?

Correct me if I am wrong, but the stock BOV for the auto PT doesnt need an upgrade as much as the manual PT does

Jabber Jaw,

The Mopar BOV can be ordered through ANY Chrysler, Jeep, or Dodge dealer + several other vendors. Here's the part #: P4510548.

A link, as requested, : http://store.yahoo.com/wyckoff-chrys...rst1tuupk.html
