Garage List
That one looks like its specifically for E chassis since f chassis n55 isn't provisioend for a BOV.

I think it's just the pic. I DM them on ig and they said it fits the stock b58 turbo, they also posted a video of the s55 single turbo bov sound and it sounds crazy.

As much as I love the sound of a BOV dumping, I'm not sure if I'd love it enough to pay $550 to get that sound.

How does that work on the B58? I thought with the electronic waste gate there is no BOV?

On b58 it only works with their turbo setup.

"N55 and S55 kits are only available for BigBoost Turbo kits only!"

Their wording seems like you can run this on the stock B58 turbo, otherwise why call out the N55 and S55 specifically? Probably would need to inquire with BigBoost directly.

It comes with the upper half of the chargepipe so you just need to link it to the other half. It turns out that this is a separate system so it will work with any turbo.

They just released a video on their Instagram page of the bov in action. It basically is welded onto the top half of the charge pipe. Simple plug and play supposedly, works with either stock turbo or upgraded since it's connected to charge pipe. Sounds pretty insane on the video post.
