Okay so ive got an 86 turbo coupe 5 spd d/r turbo and i was wondering about blow off valves... Is it even worth while? i think it would just for the sound :brow:. Any preference in brand? Any info at all... thanks.

If you get one, it should be the recirculating type which are not very loud...if you get the the ones that blow off to atmosphere, your fuel management thinks that the air blown off is still in there and dumps too much fuel between shifts and could cause drivability to suffer, unless you buy some $fancy$ turbo management equipment :)

besides, with factory boost you dont really need one anyhoo, your throttle body has a way to vent the excess pressure for stock boost. you should do some other mods first, IMO...intake, exhaust, IC, etc

I do have a spare 1g dsm bov if interested...it may go on ebay, as I need the cash now
