Firstly I would like to say the sound in this game is amazing! Previously my only gaming experience was GT (we all know how that sounds), so it brings me to this question. Why is the distinctive sound of the blow off valve in the Yellowbird missing? Are there any plans to bring it in?

A few people mentioned it in the midst of a 40+ page thread. Any actual devs confirming anything?

And why is the same missing from the Aud IMSA GTO?

To me, that car sounds really dull for some reason.

GTO has BoV sound. But it's missing in the replay mode due to lack of data to reproduce the sound. (downgraded for Console!!! :( :( :( )

It has something... But not the real sound.

My post was referring to the nickname of the car being associated with a sound, which is not correct. Nothing more. As far as the sounds, there are BOV sounds, but maybe not the type some people are expecting.

I wonder where that myth began..

Is that sound in all of them? I can't hear it in the Faszination video. =/

The video OP posted, im pretty sure it's "Blow off Valve" is modern aftermarket modification. I've seen and heard a Yellowbird at pace in person, and you know, sounded like a, you know, a Porsche flat-6.

People seem to think it's "Blow off Valve Chirp" is what gave the Yellowbird it's name, but it's actually Road&Tracks testers noted the contrast created by its yellow paintwork against the overcast skies on the day of their photo shoot.

I don't think I've ever heard of a car named after a BoV sound.

Otherwise we'd be calling LanEvos "Elevator Fart"s

And RX7's "Motorboats"

And I guess it could also just be a later production model, they did change the cars quite a lot over the years, CTR Yellowbirds aren't exactly a homogenous bunch (I do hope we got the light version instead of the heavier body version).

Please watch at 3m52s as he accelerates away. This is the same car used in the Faszination video. No audible BOV sound.

The Audi IMSA GTO's BOV seems to work in Single player, but not in Multiplayer. I know it's broken in Replay.

...This video makes PCars sounds seem way more accurate than one would be lead to believe with a thread like this.

In fact, I have a new appreciation for PCars sounds now.

The video OP posted seems to show a car with a BOV delete, or BOV Failure. Sounds like the compressed air is reverting out the intake when the throttle body is slammed shut. Boost gauge looks like it has a blockage in it's feed line too, very very slow to respond. *shrug*

That BOV sounds broken to me.

Most games seem to massively exaggerate BOVs. Modern, small turboed VAGs sounding like 900bhp Skylines etc.
