Default Drag strip or wait ???

Thursday night is Test & Tune at the local drag strips.Was planning to make first time passes tonight but, I havent installed the BOV yet. Its here but I havent got time to put it on yet. We got rain in the forcast this weekend, should I wait to go full bore with the Mopar BOV on board. Dont want to hammer the turbo. I have had some fun with the S1 installed but no repeated red line stuff. I keep seeing forums about the damage to the turbo with out a good BOV.
Come on give it to me guys.

The stock BOV will handle all of your boosting needs when compared to the Mopar BOV. It has been stated here before that the Mopar BOV doesn't add ANY performance benefits over the stock BOV, just adds the cool "whoosh" noise when your throttle plate slams shut.

yeah....the only difference will be that it is venting to atmosphere to make the "whoosh" sound. So what are you waiting for, go to the track.
