when you put the clutch down on our svts, the car keeps the throttle body open for a split second. it has a name, but i cant remember :) (youll sometimes even notice the rpms go up when you push in the clutch- when the motor is cold) its purpose is for comfortable street driving allowing you to take your time and granny-shift :) anyways, thats the "bov" sound you're hearing.
