Default Is a BPV or BOV necessary?

I am going to be installing a Vortech V2 S-trim with an intercooler. Is it necessary to run a BOV or BPV? If they are not necessary, what are the pros/cons (if any) of using them? Tried searching on this but couldn't find an answer.

Yes, didnt the kit come with one? It is also even more important when you run high boost

Definitely install the bypass valve. It helps prevent compressor surge which could, possibly, cause damage to the supercharger. I have a Vortech V3 on my Marauder running 10psi. I hear the bypass valve working quite frequently, such as when I chop the throttle. In such a situation the throttle body slams shut and all that pressure would have nowhere to go except back through the compressor if it weren't for the bypass valve.

Hey man if you need help piecing together your setup let me know. I pieced mine together for right around 2100 bucks. That included, the BOV, powerpipe, intercooler, tb and plenum and fuel pump. 1500 dollar set up can most def be done I just wanted the extra's.

I have a few things that I still need to purchase. A tuner, the gauges, and then the actual headunit (currently shopping for a used one). Below are the parts that I have so far.

From www.superchargersonline.com:
Vortech Bracket Assembly
Vortech Oil Drain
Vortech Oil Feed
Vortech Discharge Assembly
Vortech Intake Assembly

Lightning MAF/Adapter
Focus SVT Fuel Pump
42# injectors
V-Power Spark Plugs
CRXRacing DIY intercooler

I was looking at the Vortech Universal Maxflow Racing Bypass valve - http://www.superchargersonline.com/p...PartNumber=V8D
What else would I need to plumb this valve in?

When I converted to a blow thru maf, I made my vortech mini race vent to the atmosphere. I got a 2 core procharger intercooler and a intercooler pipe kit off of ebay. The kit came with a pipe that had a flange for the valve already welded.
