Diesels do not have, or need BOVs. Diesels do not have a throttle plate, therefore no need for a BOV.
A BOV is used to vent any access boost pressure to atmosphere when the throttle plate is closed on a gasser. This stops the boost pressure from flowing backward through the boost tubes, back through the turbo compressor and slowing/stopping/reversing the turbo.
In short, you do not need a BOV...and anyone that says you do, does not know what they are talking about.
That being said, you might hear a "WHOOSH" when you are at full throttle, high in the boost, when you let off. This is normal and is the sound of the boost pressure lowering in the boost tubes.
