Turbo farts don't hurt anything, and you can control them by how fast you let off the throttle.

"rfl" stands for really fin loud. Its a blow off valve made by Turbo XS i believe. I'm not sure about diesels. But blow off valves are a really good idea on most turbo systems because I hear that the turbo "fart" is actually really bad for your turbo. And the blow off valve will release the pressure as to not create back pressure and hurt your turbo. I'd like to get some real info on this.

You can get silencers on them. or even put a duck whisstle on it if your so inclined
