I can about guarantee it's not. If anything it has an intake on it. Probably just somebody making a funny video.

No, you're thinking about a BOV.... blow off valve, you'll hear a whiney air burst after each shift.
Could also be recirced, so you wouldn't be able to hear much...
The video was made to be funny. You can hear it in his voice that there is a bit of sarcasm and a bit unenthusiastic.

Nope, Not BOV, i know enough a bit turbos not to confuse them.

I meant when he was revving, isn't there supposed to be a WOT BOX TO ACT AS a rev limiter? you know how turboed civics floor it and you just here it "disconnecting" kinda?

Like a rev limiter? These cars, even if boosted, wouldn't make good power up top to even consider bouncing off the rev limitor.
