    Blocked the BOV's today, didn't work

    I know it's chavvy as fuck but I like the turbo flutter sound of cars with no BOV's (and so does the new bird) so I blocked my BOV's today to try and achieve that sound but it wasn't having it. It was louder and did sound nice but didn't get the flutter? Iv spent all day trying to find a video of a 335 doing it but can't find anything which makes me assume it can't be done on this car. Anyone have any idea why??

    Erm yeah but then you are stacking up pressure against a closed throttle and trying to stall your turbos. Not good for performance or life



    As your car is fly by wire maybe it detects the over pressure and works around it.

    Haha thanks for the concern guys but its not actually as bad as people make out. There seems to be a 50/50 split in people's opinions. If it was that bad why would so many silly power cars run like it?

    Post a vid to show us what you mean. I know you said you can't find the exact noise but something close.

    I thought you would just want to change your bov to something like this?

    I'd do it if I had a 335i. No point you spending any more money on yours though.
