Hey guys,
today i cleaned my throttle body got rid of the build up. Is it normal for the BOV to be louder after this? Everything is on tight and how it should be , it just seems to be a little louder. any feedback would be great.

Thanks StrawbZ

Well my performance has imporved a little bit, while i did have everything off, i did notice there was a slight gap near the the throttle body where i could of been losing some pressure. So i think that has fixed it and im just not use to the sound :? :lol:

Well, anything that reduces overall surface area will reduce the airflow and power. I think its more to do with gunk building up on the butterfly and the bypass valve
