    I'm not really sure that a BOV (Blow-off valve) is needed for the Thar CRDE. As far as I know, the turbo in the Thar does not produce very high boost (I think it is 2-3 pounds only, as that's what my app - the Torque App shows for the Scorpio as well, reading from the ECU. The Thar already comes with a waste gate on the turbocharger, which releases excess exhaust pressure to prevent damage to the turbo. Blow-off valves, if I'm not mistaken, are installed upstream, just after the intercooler on the intake side to reduce pressure - and mainly for petrol engines to avoid damage to the throttle body.
    What do you think would be the advantage of installing a BOV for the Thar or for that matter Scorpio? I think the waste gate with the turbo does enough of a job for safeguarding the engine. Thoughts?
