Meyers,

There's a dude here by the name of Rockhead who is an expert on all things automotive so he'll probably be able to give you some relevant advice.

You don't have a turbo but want a blow off valve?!?

What kind of lame ass car show would let that fly?


I guess if you wanted one you'd have to install some sort of air compressor to make the valve actually work, but again I have no idea why you'd actually want something so stupid.

"no its just theres something odd with my motor and theres too much pressure and noway to release that"

Uhh.... no. Just no. Intakes on N/A motors always operate at a vacuum. You can put all the blowoff valves on it you want, but they'll never operate. What you are proposing is putting a valve that opens at something like 8 psi on a system that always operates at a negative pressure. What possible good would it do?

I don't mean to be a jerk, but its pretty obvious that you have really no clue how an engine or a BOV works, so the answer is no. Just no. Technically you could, but only if you want to get laughed right out of the car show. If I saw it at a car show, I would personally find the owner and slap him with the back of my wet hand.

According to me I think You can put all the blowoff valves on it you want, but they'll never operate.
