I know my motor made a really neat sound when I lifted the throttle sounded kinda like the old indy cars (cart) and when I installed the BOV that went away but the car got a lot more manners so +1 on the drivability aspect.

I still stand firm that the factory used the bypass valve for driveability 99% and boost recovery/turbo life 1%.

In Mark's case since he did not drive the car between bypass and BOV modification we can't say the BOV improved anything, just that it sucks less than the factory piece

just my opinion from messing with turbo cars since 1980. That and $.99 will almost get you a cheeseburger from McDonalds
" Porsche there is no substitute" I always liked that saying. Air cooled is the only way to go!
