I know I'm coming in a little late in this thread but here is my own experience with no BOV. I ran with out one for 2 years. Hammered the throttle many a times and heard my turbo stall and chatter occasionally (the sound was just like the 935's I watched at the IMSA races years ago). Never had any issues. I'm not advocating for anyone else to do it, I took the chance on my own. I chose to leave it off for a couple of reasons....1. I got a LOT better throttle response without it. 2. The race cars back in the day (935's) didnt run them. Yeah, I know they rebuilt the turbo's or whatever after every race but from a performance standpoint they were not needed. 3. If I damaged my turbo from not running one then I would buy another turbo AND reconnect the BOV and never do it again! But as it turned out.....nothing happened.
