This is from Turbosmart.com, they specialize in turbo products for numerous vehicles

To eliminate compressor surge when changing gears. Excessive back pressure is created when the throttle is closed during gear changes or deceleration, causing turbo cavitation. This is detrimental to the life of your turbocharger, however fitting a BOV will substantially improve this problem. By installing a BOV you will significantly reduce turbo spool up time. You will notice a substantial improvement in response from your turbo between gearshifts. Boost will come on earlier giving an increase in torque at lower RPM.

mcarloss04, I saw your thread about the supercharger and hope you dont think you are going to incorporate a blow off valve with a supercharger, unless you were twin charging your Monte with a turbo and a supercharger and that would be very costly.

You need a tubo kit in order to have a blow off valve. The cartuning performance turbo kit they make for an n/a 3800series engine comes with one.
