    pfff

    I liked the stock BOV better. Turbo seemed to spool faster w/recirc. Could still hear it a bit w/silencer removed.

    From what I have read...the crinkle red might now be offered anymore. Try contacting Worx Tuning or boostkits. they should be able to answer your questions.

    I spoke to Mike at Worxtuning, and he told me that the demand of the Wrinkle Red finished BOV has been so high, and that the process of putting the finish on is so long, that they are looking for another process so they can keep up with demand.

    I believe he also said that their website would no longer be offering the Wrinkle Red finish, but that if you called them direct you could place the order. I checked their website and they ad for their recirc valve still mentions the wrinkle red finish and shows a picture of it. If you want one, I would get an order in now.

    Well, it finally came in. I installed it last night. It was pretty simple actually if not a little annoying to work with such little slack in the hose. Annyway, IMO its pretty loud. Maybe not as loud as an HKS but i can hear it with the radio on and all. I have it set to 50/50 and notice very little if any difference in spool up time.

    BTW IT LOOKS AMAZING!. ENJOY.

    Why not just remove your intake silencer to increase the noise level of the stock bypass valve?

    be sure to do plenty of reading on the other affects of removing the silencer, particularly the effects on MAF at higher RPMS and speeds...
