Since it is not CIS I can vent to atmosphere and I am thinking I can weld a flange on to the turbo outlet right below the intercooler it is stainless. Pic of motor to give ideas.

You will get as many different opinions on this one as there are contributors.
Cars were turbocharged for years before BOV were added to the intake duct and we saw very few turbocharger failures. It's my experience you are OK if you run street boost. BTW I like the sound also.
