I wanted to get everyones opinion on open vs closed Procharger Bypass Valve. It seems allot are running the open version. I am concerned about all the dirt it would be sucking into the engine. I purchased the open version and need to decide if I should sell it to get the enclosed version. It is mounted just inside the drivers side inner fender.

It's only called open do to the fact the air comes out all the way around the top.top is basicly open,air goes every direction.closed big red directs air through the big port....btw the bottom part is the same,same valve,spring,coupler and all.just the peice that on top is different
I just know that on my last two systems that had bypass valves with filters on them. I would have to clean the filter from time to time. If I run this Big Red there is nothing to filter the air when it is open.
Is there any particular reason this couldn't be used with a Vortech system?
Yes it can be used on Vortech system. It comes with a pipe and flange that you would have to have fabricated into you piping.
Any benefits to it besides the noise?
It can handle large amounts of boost. High horsepower applications.
How is this one compared to the one A&A sells, the Mondo valve?
Mondo is Vortech's big bypass valve.
