I personally don't think it's necessary.

The blow off valve is used to release pressure so that it doesn't go back through your turbo creating compressor surge. The reason it isn't really needed is because there isn't a enough compressor surge created to damage your turbos. I don't know of a single person who has damaged a set of turbos due to compressor surge. If you want to spend the $650 for a cool sound and a little added security, it's your money. My advice is don't do it.

Woah, $650? I was considering doing this just for the peace of mind but now I'm not so sure. I don't get on my truck enough to really worry about it...not at that cost anyway. Thanks for the advice!
