    it looks like another name for a dump valve and does exactly the same job but they call it something else judging by this link

    your best bet for the LET engine is just leave the OE valve in place and not fit a BOV as they only cause trouble.

    ERR They dont always cause trouble-its 50/50 some users say there fine some say lob them in the bin! i've been running mine for a year with no problems with the baileys dv26 but will soon be swapping it for the hks ssqv for a better sound! this has been covered so many times now.
