    You tried the HKS SSV BOV? You might want to check that one out.

    But my question still remains on the Turbo smart supersonic....
    I have never heard of the turbo smart supersonic.

    I have the forge. It is a very nice unit. Not as loud as the rfl but puts out a nice sound.

    you should try www.blowoffvavles.com , they got some BOVs that you can DL and listen too.

    Right now, I got a JDM one, but I'm looking to get a Greddy Type-S, they sound sweet

    I believe the HKS is louder than the RFL. The RFL emits higher decibels (so technically it's louder), but the HKS is higher pitched and can be heard more (i.e. louder).

    So, if you want a "whoosh" sound then get the RFL. If you want a high pitched, eagle-like sound then get the HKS.

    BOVs are helllla cool to have, no matter the wooosh sound or the high picthed one. The only problem with BOVs, is that they are EXPENSIVE, THEY dno't even add HP...but I think they are worth it. BOVs shows you that you rule the road! But they cost a grip...

    Intake has alot to do with how loud your bov is too. My friend has a Turbo XS RFL bov and aem cai. Back when I had my stock bov, mine was louder. I have a Blitz SUS intake.

    i have been on both ends of the spectrum, having a blitz SUS short ram and now having the RFL w/ stock intake and silencer. I can assure you that the RFL is MUCH louder and sweeter sounding than the generic sounding stock BOV w/ the intake.
