I didn't realize you two were looking to swap aftermarket turbos in here too. just swap a junkyard LS with china turbos in there and be done with it!

 

ok, ok i didn't mean that...  we'll stick to ford parts!

You got all this from me saying it barely goes off when tuned and will basically never go off unless really pushing the car in stock form?

Nick you are about half correct. 

 

The part you're right about: It is not a necessity for folks staying near stock due to low boost and with in factory spec.

 

The incorrect part is the BOV is a safety/security modification and becomes a necessity with aftermarket turbos due to the higher accuracy needed when running higher boost on stock bottom ends. 

 

Please remember, as pioneers in the platform we have responsibility of providing non-biased and factual information based on long-term experience (10+ years) or other legitimate sources.

no from this "I've had my BOV on for 2 years now. It's more a sound mod "

trust me if an ls3 would be an easy swap i would have done it already ;-).

 

But we are looking for a left and right turbo to send off to have 2867gtx cores machined in, with the goal to hit 24psi and hold till redline instead of tapering off to 14psi and blowing hot air like our stock ones do.

Depends on your tune, some taper to 14 psi in 3rd and some tunes are able to hit 19 psi @ 6200 rpm, again depends on the tuner.... which I agree is hot air at that point, but 14 psi is more in the efficiency rang.

Show me the logs that prove the one you guys installed...

Improves throttle response?

Better boost control after a gearshift, etc.?

Or just makes a difference in how the car performs in general?

 

I am all for modifications, but I like to see data before I make my mind up.

I guess it improves throttle response as much as a TB spacer. 
with my logs, Torrie noticed not a single difference with/without

Most likely see a quicker throttle response if you got off the throttle and immediately jabbed it again, but under what driving condition would that happen, can only see it on a stick shift gear change, or trying to impress at the lights with the transmission in Neutral pumping the throttle as seen in the YouTube videos.
