BOV to be installed

A local tuning shop here has contacted me and would like to put a BOV on my car. They are testing it, and want to make a marketing video/audio or something. They'll let me keep it after they're done. I am not too familiar with the pro's and con's of a BOV. Other than sound, do BOV provide any other performance?

NO, they dont provide any performance in our cars. Its mostly a sound aesthetic and a pretty piece in the engine bay when you open the hood.

What shop? I'm in Chandler too and would be willing to pay for a quality BOV if they have one available.
