Has anyone here ever run a blow-off valve instead of replacing their BPV
when it blows?  I see that many manufacturers use those from the factory
(Mitsubishi, Nissan, Mazda) and this could help eliminate our blown
hoses, etc. issues with chipped cars and/or upgraded turbos, since the
pressure is relieved instead of being re-routed.  It seems that
Audi never has though, I assume even with the RS4, RS2, etc.  Thoughts?
