I searched on this topic but could not find the exact answer I was looking for.

Question is: If I vent the BOV on my 2013 Ecoboost to the atmosphere, will this cause any negative effects? (other than the annoying sound to some people) I have heard some say that it will cause the engine to run rich due to the missing air charge coming from the BOV, However if I install a high-flow air-filter would this compensate for the lost air? Or will venting the BOV have not effect at all?

All you get is sound.
No ill effects since the truck does not use mass air sensors.
Also, a filter would not compensate for this on a mass air setup...
