    You should really just put your mod money toward whistle-tips. I mean, once you get a catless whistle-back exhaust installed, you won't be able to hear the BOV anyway.

    Is the fluttering under heavy boost or just a little? My friends HKS super sequential gets a fluttering sound if he doesn't boost more then 3-5psi.

    Yeah definately go with forge, it's not as loud as the others, but from my research it is better and you can adjust it too.

    I like my turbo xs rfl. It's loud yes but it seems to work well. my only thing is that I get a fludder sound in 5th gear with my foot down. yet all other gears have a good short sound. I found that the screws at the base can back out. I think ther 8/32 and I used a screw instead of there setup. I currently have 4 washers in it. with my vf39 I boost 18.5 and it loud and fast. I have heard many say hks ssqv but overall it's real quiet. I read some where in a mag. it said the sock bov is good til 15psi. If you want to here the stock one pretty well then get a short ram filter setup.
