    I enjoy my bov.- I got my hks kit + pipe for 500sh. but you can find them off members take offs pipe/bov hks cpe combo for like 200-300 on Facebook group part groups or even on here. but I wanted new, so bought straight from cpe or Adam tuned at cpe. gave me like 50-60 dollar discount for asking.

    cpe also does 15% sales here and there.

    That's deadass hilarious! Well.. obstructing the vision...

    In a way, I want to see how many pull-overs I can rack up. - I wanna make it a point to just drive safe as fuck, and see how many will attempt to make a pullover.

    If I do that, you think I'll lose? - Say they just end up writing me out for no reason?

    That sounds amazing! - How much was installation on it?

    Yeah, a fellow Cal. Highway Patrol was getting some food where I was, and I asked him to position his car for a "cool" picture with his Police Patrol. - He said yes, this is how it turned out! I'm stoked.

    And there's some on "Things to know before buying my EcoBoost" my post.

    These days with on-line doctors, should be able to find one who'll certify you have x-ray vision.

    Nobody answered the OP's question, of what are the benefits a bov, vs diverter valve.

    I think he was looking for the sound of the BoV. The diverter wouldn't give him the "whooosh". BoV is mustang6g approved safe!

    OP asked if it was safe. The answer he was given was yes. This part of the thread is done. OP is happy.

    Why not just disconnect the recirculating pipe and cover the hole with a bung. Cost nothing and you get the same result?

    Save the money and hassle and just disconnect the re-circulation tube.
    It sounds exactly like Steeda's adapter if not louder
