Q: Can i put a blow off valve without a turbocharger?

asked by on

Can i put a blow off valve without a turbocharger? And do they fit all cars?

My car has 124000 miles.
My car has an automatic transmission.

A: Hello. An actual blow off valve is only mad...

Hello. An actual blow off valve is only made for turbocharged vehicles. This is a functional part of a turbocharger to keep the vehicle from over boosting. If you are looking to get the blow-off valve sound then there are sources online that you can purchase these from. They do not provide any sort of performance increase, but only provide a change in the noise coming from the engine.
