WOW guyz...take it easy. Yes andytran04 you need a turbo if you want the BOV.

A blow-off valve is mounted in the intake plumbing between the
turbocharger compressor and the throttle plate. The blow-off valve is a
second safety measure against the turbocharger over-boosting and damaging
the engine.

The blow-off valve is more commonly used to keep the turbocharger spinning
when the throttle plate is suddenly closed. When the turbocharger is
generating maximum boost pressure at full throttle and then the throttle
is suddenly closed, compressed air coming from the compressor slams
against the throttle, generating extremely high pressures that travel
backwards to the compressor stopping the compressor from spinning. When
the throttle plate is again opened, the engine must spool the turbocharger
shaft again. The effects of this high pressure can also be very damaging
to the turbocharger

Hope this helps and don't worry about smart Azz 1 and 2. Any questions are welcome.

A BOV is for Turbo applications. Not superchargers. It released access boost when you're not on the throttle.

**edited*** My bad..got waste gate and the BOV mixed up...my apologies.

There are some superchargers that have them well most do. A turbo has both a blow off valve and waste gate. When u go to let the gas from hauling a#$ your throttle is completely closed where do u think the extra air goes. If there was not a blow off or air recycler(I think thats what its called in a pro charger kit I watched get put in) when u would let off the gas some seriouse bs would happen to the supercharger or throttle body. I may be wrong but hay ask around maybe some one will agree with one of us.
