    I got a boomba BPV. Using it with +6 tune. This is not venting anything to atmosphere. Does anyone have data logs showing problems with the boomba BPV? Curious, my car is running fine.


    EDIT: Here are some data logging results, I don't know how to read them. Thoughts?boomba bpv results 2.PNG Boomba BPV results.PNG

    Someone correct me if im wrong. But i remember reading Boomba offered a BOV that was safe to use. Turns out it wasnt safe at all and was fucking peoples shit up. I wouldnt support that company even if it works fine.

    I'm not sure what the advantage of replacing the stock recirculating BPV with an aftermarket one is anyway. I think I saw someone post that the stock BPV is rated far and above the pressures the system would see under load. That being said, as long as this piece is good quality I can't see it harming anything.

    Yeah its well made, its literally the same as the stock, just handles higher pressures and looks much better built. It releases no air, so no rich condition.

    I don’t think it vents to atmosphere at all. Maybe wrong.

    The advantage of replacing the BPV is that you'll never have a leak later in the future.

    The spring on the boomba is stiffer than stock and according to D-Rob, it'll cause "overboost" or so. Been running it for a while and no issues on my dyno tune. Full throttle and no overboost or problems. Not saying I trust this product but I'm hoping it doesn't cause anything strange to happen lol.

    How many stock BPV have been reported or proven to fail or leak? Remind me

    Is my waste gate ok? Opens up to 8mm. Air fuel seems odd.

    Also, seems like the vehicle is "breathing" extremely well after greddy supreme sp exhaust and 27 won intake.
