I have a volvo s60 2.5t 2007 auto. My car is stock and im planning on buying a bov for my car. I heard some people saying that bov can harm something that i didn't hear? I'm going to Sweden to buy exhaust system and computer chip from the company BSR jun 28, should i get the bov in Sweden or just get any Hks bov from my country? I was thinking of buying it here but Im unsure if im going for the bov at all. Any opinions with putting a BOV on the 2.5t? <IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/confused.gif" BORDER="0">

it would only be for the sound but it won't hurt your car. Since you have an auto, you won't run rich either between shifts since you don't have to let go of the gas. Do you have an intake yet? That might give you the sound you're looking for since you can hear the cbv better with an open intake.

The problem with the S60, is that it has a hybrid valve, and you need a way to block off the factory one. <p><A HREF="http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=55818" TARGET="_blank">http://forums.swedespeed.com/zerothread?id=55818</A><p>

if anyone makes an intake for your car, just buy that, it will yield nearly the same effect

i wouldn't even bother getting a BOV. they're kinda dumb unless you're running a crazy large turbo boosting alot of PSI, but other than that they are pretty useless on stock turbo cars. If you just want that "blow-off" sound, get a cone filter and you will be plenty happy with that.

Or you could just put turbo badges all over it :<IMG NAME="icon" SRC="http://www.vwvortex.com/vwbb/rolleyes.gif" BORDER="0">:

Re: (Turb04S60)

put an intake on, it'll be obvious you have a turbo!<br>there is no blow off sound, you get a "blow back" sound from the air going back into the throttle body.<p><A HREF="http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-V7BrbwHFBM" TARGET="_blank">http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=-V7BrbwHFBM</A>
