BOV's on x5ms?

Can you swap these on the x5m for louder/better ones?

No i do not want my x5 to sound like a ricer but I would like a louder "turbo noise"

Is turbo inlet air baffled or routed in an odd way? (I wouldn't expect OEM to be inefficient though.) Streamlining the inlet air via hard piping should make for louder compressor volume (and more importantly, spool, but damn if the M isn't already efficient in that dept.) Hearing the turbos sucking in inlet air is fun.... can't say I'm a huge fan of BPV noises, but.... here's a functional (and maybe louder) piece:

Synchronic DV - Synchronic BOV - SB001 design philosophy - SB001 revision & updates

edit: might snag one of these myself actually... the seals on my Dinan/Turbonetics BPV for the S/C probably needs refreshing/replacing.

edit2: You ricer you!

Check on aisle 6, next to the 3 level wing spoilers.

Did he really say BOV????

Wow! Visions of WRXs, turbo neons, Turboed hondas, EVOs.
all covered with stickers, fart can mufflers, hearing the pressure release on every shift

Forget the BOV, Brian Spilner!

Whats next, a Nitrous Purge in each front wheel well???

Did you sell your M6?

BTW, OP had some tasty mods on his X5 4.8is, so wonder what he is planning for X5M, other than BOV's .
