Simply put...No...If you mount it on a cold air intake, you will intake air from where you mount it, and most likely throw off your MAFS and make your car run poorly

A blow off valve relieves excess pressure when the throttle produces a vacuum in the intake manifold. So if there is no excess pressure the blow off valve has nothing to release.

Now you can get devices that claim to produce this sound with out having a turbo or super charged engine (, but this is like putting playing cards on bicyles!
