Default Blowoff Valve - Should I?

2005 PT S4 Dream Cruiser (5 speed trans): KW Element 1 Coilovers (3" lowering), Freedom Design Strut Bar, Dunlop Signature Sports (she now sticks like she is on rails!), K&N CAI System with outside air routed directly at the filter, 3" CatBack System, Bra, Stripes, more engine mods to follow (plugs & wires, BOV, Catch Can, etc.)

I am considering a Blowoff Valve for her. What is the upside and which one should I get (if any)?

For what I heard, the best bov for our stock turbos is the blue plate, specially because is close to the turbo.

I just ordered upper and lower hard pipes along with a HKS bov.

I have heard two stories though, one block off stock bov, or run them both.

I have the HKS on my PT, and am running both. Very low boost the stock takes care of it, higher boost, the HKS goes off.

haha, I just ordered the $30 one too. 3.25 shipping is cheaper than me driving to go get it.
