Recently installed the Torque Solutions Blow off valve sound plate.

Drove fine for a while, did a few hard pulls, and (if i had to guess) 4,500-5,000 RPMs in 4th gear and the car went into limp mode. This is probably 10-15 minutes after install.

Pulled over, restarted the car, ran fine after that. Did a few hard pulls after that and it seemed to run fine. Did a diagnostics scan and it seems like the car cleared the error out by itself because it wasn't showing up.

I do understand the risks of running rich. Just wanted an explanation or some sort. Was the car just not used to the different are:fuel ratio? Was it not used to the difference in pressure gain/loss? Should I be worried/remove it?

Also, I understand the blow off valve is meant for the blow off noise. Is it supposed to make your spool louder? It's a little 1.5 liter turbo engine and the turbo spools super loud now. (I like it, just seeing if other people got the same results or again, should i be worried).

Alright, I'll take it out soon. Thanks for the input! I guess I had my fun with the "Pshhh" sound but tbh it's not worth all the hype. 2 days and I got my "wanna be Subaru" out of my system

I installed a Turbo XS blow off valve on my 2018 Civic hatch and had no issues as of yet. I do have a Hondata tune, test pipe, down pipe, and Injen short ram intake. Runs and sounds great! CVT trans.
