    Can someone explain to me what would the effect be if you ran a turbo without a BOV. Vs using a blow off valve.

    the bov gets rid of boost your not using, the bov will make the turbo last longer, think about it lets say your boosting 17psi then all of a sudden you let off the gas your throttle body door slams closed all that boost will have no where to go so you get a bov to let it out
