Just wondering if anyone out there had a blow off valve on their RL yet. If so what did you put on there and how do you like it..? Im looking at the HSK SSBV (super sequential blow off valve) - if you have any input please let me know!

You can't put a BOV on a roots supercharger.

Roots-type supercharger compresses air in the manifold. Our superchargers contain an internal bypass valve. Please don't try and put a BOV on your car..

i have looked into this and from what i know our cars cant use a blow off valve because we dont have to realaease any back pressure like a turbo or a syntrifical supercharger, i would love to put a bov on the rl but i dont think we can.

all you would have to do ya know because you already know everything is quite simply take off the supercharger. Drill a big ass hole in the side of it where the bypass valve. Weld in some steel to make it stay open and create a channel to the newly drilled hole. And weld on your flange. Simple only a few minute job right.

He' s a newbie, he'll get the hang of searching then asking. His understanding of roots blowers and B.O.V.'s may not be on the same page, but don't bash him to hard. He has after all shown signs of hightened intellect, he bought a Red Line. ;)
