What would be the purpose of the valve if your engine isn't turbocharged? Blow off valves release the pressure from the compressor. If you just want the cool noise it makes, then no, you can't do it.

NO, the blow off valve works off of positive pressure from the actual turbo, not vacuum which a naturally aspirated car has. the pressure from the impeller spinning creating boost releases when the clutch pedal is pressed causing the PSSHHHHH sound you hear. Without the positive pressure you will NEVER get this sound.
