That's your opinion. I've had BOV on all of my turbo cars and none were Civics. Although it is more audible when it's on a manual transmission car where you have to let off the gas between each shift, I still think it sounds cool and I like it so that's all that matters.

I agree, this gen raptor doesn't come with a mean sounding V8, so I'd rather hear the intake/ turbo noise than to have a crappy loud exhaust system slapped on the v6 setup. Yo each their own, but enjoy how mine sounds with a CAI, silencer rings removed, and new BOV. Not getting any real world HP boosts but I like it much more than how it drove stock.

I just got my set up in the mail the other day. I went with the ADD intercooler as well. The turbosmart video doesn't help me at all for the install. lol I had to get the throttle body spacer apparently. Which has 3 threaded holes in it. I'm assuming I only need one of them?

Anyone have any tips for install, does the bumper have to come off or can i just drop the skid. Going to be installing this weekend looks straight foward.

Thanks

Thatís the video that I used for instructions. Only difference on the Raptor is that you have to remove the skid plate in order to remove the intercooler. Other than that itís pretty much like the video shows.

Just installed my Turbosmart. Great sound pretty easy install. I did get a CEL so that sucks.

I'm thinking it might be the crimp on the CEL eliminator cable. I didn't feel like messing with it again, I already buttoned everything back up. Anyone else get a CEL they were able to clear?

Same thing happened to me. Itís definitely the crimp on the CEL eliminator. I had to strip some of the wires so the crimp would make contact. I think since those wires are so thin the crimp doesnít cut all the way through.
