Blow off valves sound!!! ASA Turbomex Tm12

Hello there,

I bought my supercharger kit in second hand, and everything works fine, but while in vacuum the blow off valves are making to much noise... Im boost (blow off valve close) its very quiet, in vacuum (blow off valve open) its like a permanent agressive dump valve sound...

Anyone with this problem?

Driving in the highway keeping de 60miles per hour, its screams like a dump valve sound, if i push the accelerator (boost, blow off valve closes) than i only ear the exhaust.

its bypass valve sound. SOme of the bypass valves are louder than other. Check to see which one you have or switch it out. Some kits have 1, have had 2.

If all works well enjoy!
