You're correct in a strict sense. However, the CTS BOV kit is not a 100% dump-to-atmosphere solution. It dumps enough to atmosphere to give you a BOV effect, whilst keeping enough air recirculating to not cause any issues such as running rich. The DV portion of the BOV kit is also an upgrade over the stock Rev D kit and holds high boost very well.

I have the BOV kit on my car (DSG with K04) and absolutely love it. It's been putting a smile on my face since day 1 with zero issues. And I log my car constantly. It simply has NO problems. Just a lot "moar noiz"

i know why people are recommending factory/rev d from reading the title but for OP's question that would be far from correct. i also recommend a different intake if you want more noise.
do a burnout.
