BOV Questions

So i have had my EGR delete installed for almost 6 months now. Have noticed that if I get on it (floor pedal) and abruptly let all the way out of it, it will make a weird sound. As if there is air coming back out my intake. So have been crusing around on here trying to find a tread about this. I found one In the 7.3 section. They have a video of a dodge sounds just like mine does. They called it (turbo Farts) So I ask them what to do to fix it?? They quickly refer me back to my kind. So here I am, what do I need to get now guy's BOV , Waste gate , any info would be great thanks. And glad to be back with MY KIND .

It is turbo fart and they only way I know if to get rid of it is a BOV. Most techs say that it's generally nothing to worry about.

They said in the dreaded 7.3 section it is the sound of your turbo stoping and spinning the other direction. Dosent sound like anything I want happing. Also i really dont want the blow off sound, trucks to big to sound like a ricer!!

Its nothing to worry about. just the boost that the turbo created that when you let off has no where to go but back out the way it came.

Mine does the same thing...especially when cold. Some people say it is fine and others have said it is bad for the turbo.

yea this isnt good.and i completely disagree about not worrying about it.anytime something that spins at 100,000+ rpms and then stops and spins the other way and back again is never good for the shaft or bearings of said object.and this is what is happening when this sound occurs.there are several ways to fix this problem.i wont start another back and forth arguement like what happened in the 7.3 section....so here are your options....upgrade your turbo(new wheels,housings, complete turbo) change what psi your boost bleeds out of your waste gate(egr on stock but yours is deleted) so buy a new waste gate, or buy a bov set up(if you dont like the sound and try really hard you might be able to find a recirculating one.).anyway all your decision.just know that once your turbo makes contact with the housing because it didnt seem important and pieces of the turbo then make it to your valves and pistons and destroy your eng,its no longer a turbo problem.i hope i have been the most informative about this as i can be.if you have any other questions please pm me and ill try to explain it better or more in depth.trust me that your turbo was only designed to spin one way.

you can allways route your bov back into the intake. I've seen this before. Doesn't seem logical but it does quiet it down a lot. the closer to your air cleaner the better so your not just shooting that pressure back through the system. My skyline had the bov vented just behind the air cleaner. It was still noticable under high boost but not nearly as bad as it was just dumped to the atmosphere.

If you drive normal, and don't take the motor to high RPM and let off quickly, you won't have a need for a BOV.

so I know you have been very informative on this subject both here and the 7.3 section. I would like to post answers up here not only for myself but others to view as well. I do have an EGR delete installed so what part of it was the waste gate. And if this does affect the performance of something else why is that never addressed with the EGR delete kits. Should a waste gate be installed on exhaust side or intake?? Once again totally new to turbo and just trying to gain knowledge and inform others along the way. Thanks .
