    Have TXS RFL BOV, keep it or sell/trade for HKS SSQ?

    I just got a TXS RFL BOV, and its awesome and VERY VERY loud, but i am thinking of getting the HKS SSQ instead, has a more unique sound and doesnt seem like it would get annoying or as loud when not trying to blow it off. I feel that i will get sick of the RFL when im driving normal or with other ppl that dont like it (my parents or older friends lol). So has anyone had both, and is the SSQ as loud when you want it to be? I love having the sound though, its like not having to use the horn, lol. Also, when i drive around in the parking lot EVERYONE looks at my car like WTF! Thanks, and let me know!
    One of the reasons why i am considering this is because im going to go with the HKS carbon TI exhaust maybe and the combination of the 2 sounds great!

    Fluttering Forge BOV Fix

    If you are like me, and have had problems with the Forge BOV fluttering when you shift at anything under half boost, then I have found a solution for you. Take the BOV off the car, undo the 6 allen screws, pop the top off, and replace the blue spring with the yellow one that should have been given to you when you bought the BOV. This fixed this minor, yet annoying problem that I have been having. Just felt like throwing it out here for any of you fellow Forge users
