I am wondering if the steeda adapter will hurt anything other than running a little rich when you let off. What's the best I'm just wanting that psshh sound
Not an expert, but I agree. My understanding for turbos in general is the engine doesn't need the blow off it is just sent back into it for noise reduction. Air intake varies a lot because of atmospheric pressure, temperature, ect... the tune OEM, or not should be able to handle that. In addition some of the CAIs have optional VTO options e.g. JLT. So they are at least secure that it is not an issue with their products.Won’t hurt anything.
That “hack” is just a different way of doing what the adapter would do, still not going to hurt anything.What I would personally avoid is one of the blow off hacks like disconnecting the hose, and trying to fit a make shift plug on the intake tube.
Pointless....not really it’ll still give the pppsssshhh noise when you let off the gas quickly, and at shifts if your getting on it, but a better option would be a better BOV, as you’ll hear the OEM BOV vent at weird moments when cruising.Are they pointless if it's an automatic?
If its on its venting to atmosphere. You will hear it more on a 6 speed. Auto only when on the throttle hard and letting off. Also the factory bpv vents while cruising at a constant speed for the most part thus it won't be loud even on a 6speed when coming from a steady cruising.
