This might be a dumb question, but do you hear the blow off sound with the ripps mod supercharger

Yes, you do hear the BOV on the SDS. It has a nice blow off sound and dosen't sound like a whistle, which gets anoying.

probably depending on what tranny you have. in my sporty, if i just shift it straight through then no, i dont hear a blowoff. if im just messin around and wanna hear it sometimes, or wanna get someones attention then i let off the throttle real quick and it blows off.

its crazy though, depending on how long i stay off the throttle the blowoff sounds way different. from a super soaker running out of water, or sometimes itll sound like the HKS sequential blowoff... weird

My BOV sounds like the Skyline in the beginning of 2gay 2curious, but a little more suttle.

The new ripp bpv sounds like when a vacuum cleaner nossle is close to a carpet.... rushing air. When you are WOT and then let off, it lets out a big burst of air like WOOOOOOOSH.

I'm addicted to it.

yeah! exactly. it is quite addicting. i still think the HKS sequential is WAY better sounding than the ripp BOV though...

The original bypass valve that came with the older SDS kits which was the HKS sounded sweet.
If you replace the one Ripp sells with a GReddy Type RS, it sounds nice, not to mention that it doesn't look like it came from a high school metal shop. :lol:

He lies not. I've ridden with him a few times. :drool: Russ, I do hate you for that though, because now i have turbo-fever, which normally wouldn't be a problem, except that I have a lack of funds :squint:
