and to contribute something useful. Yes, there are BOV's for these trucks. The ones you'd want to look at are on the pricey side, but it's worth the money to have a quality piece. ALSO, if you have an auto tranny, its not gonna have the effect you want, unless you want to let off the gas whenever the tranny shifts

This may be a dumb question but what exactly does a bov do? I thought they were usually only used on higher hp trucks

I think that when you reach a certain boost pressure it just blows the valve and releases the extra pressure

it releases boost pressure between shifts so you don't damage your turbo. Cause if you let off the gas too shift, your throttle will be closed so the boost will hit the closed throttle and go back at the turbo, the BOV releases the pressure to avoid turbo damage from the boost hitting it and either causing it to stop or spin the other direction which is bad for it, leads to increased wear
