Just met one of the MazdaSpeed 6 dudes...
He had a CAI and stock BOV. but his BOV actually made a cool/nice/loud sound.
He said that a CAI will make the stock BOV sound like that.

That's what he actually had on his 6. comments ???

getting rid of the airbox and adding a cai will make the bov much louder. open up your airbox lid and drive around. it will sound similar to this vid...

so help me out there.
when I get the CAI, the stock blow-off vale can be heard. however, there should be any negative performance impact right ?
like the car running rich ? spark plug build up ? GAS milage going down ?

What's VTA by the way ?

If anything a cai is going to increase gas mileage by leaning out the mixture, a bov will decrease gas milage if you vent to air (VTA).

the exhaust in the BOV video is actually totally stock.
the picture however is actuallt what is soon to be the new TBE from protege garage. they are starting to make their own parts and i am the tester for the MS3. the exhaust is still in the works as there are minor fittment issues, but the gains are awesome !!
no dyno yet but i get lots of wheel hop all the way until i hit fourth gear !! low end power is greatly improved, and it replaces both cats.

the cat is actually a highland lynx i had to drive to kentucky to get him...he is actually much bigger now !!

they scuffed my door...scratched the hell out of my shiftknob..... and put my BOV back on wrong and broke the fitting off, and drove my car for 150 miles while they had it. and after all that they said if i wanted any of the parts from them i would have to pay !!! i would only get a discount !
so i told them to fix my car and kiss my ass ! i recommend no one EVER do business with them.

yeah..not a fan of that look myself.
Sorry to hear that tru-boost. But thanks for sharing..so we all know.

Anyway
Thinking through it, if you get a CAI and the stock BOV makes the sound, then I would assume everything is still good to go. It is afterall a Mazdaperformance accessory.

so looking forward to my CAI
