    the PIT gives off a pretty good wooosh, under hard throttle it sounds like a whip cracking depending how fast your off and on the gas, under light throttle it flutters like a walrus it just depends on how you drive. TXS makes one similar to the PIT with a little more eye appeal.

    the thing is, yes, i am obsessed with the sound, but its more of a question of what to do with the recirculation hose. should i cap it off? i have heard that if you install atmospheric, your check engine light goes on.

    Thumbs up

    a fully atmospheric bov should come with a plug for hose the one i use did. the sound is great espicially with an exhaust your like a rolling band.i don't know about the check engine light it has not come on in my car other than for a loose gas cap. the 02 might be different check engine usually means emission control problems. i hear hks sounds the best but i also hear that the mord special features the more prone to leaking it will be. i paid $100 for mine very basic i feel it works, turbo spools quicker and my chick says it makes her tingle

    Free BOV

    back when i had an atmospheric blow off valve, and saw how it actually worked, i realized that you could convert the stock BPV into a BOV. all you would have to do is plug the recirc hose and leave it disconnected from the BPV. anyone try this? what kind of sound does it make? im over the whole BOV phase, i just miss the sound from time to time.

    bov to recirculate or not to recirculate that is the question

    hello, cool, you know what to do. you must have the non adjustable GFB bov. i have yet to hear anything bad about the GFB bov. i too have an 02 wagon HKS up-pipe and turbo back exhaust (Hyper system), STI intercooler, K&N panel filter with carbon fiber air ramp and delete elbow, GFB bov (of course) and manual boost controler set at 15.5 lbs... fun stuff enjoy

    I have tried it. It causes bad idle and a lot of stumbleing in between shifts. Although it is loud as hell, I wouldn't advise it.

    I have had none of these problems with my 100% atmospheric HKS BOV.

    It doesn't work. I've seen it tried on more than one occasion. Each time the car ran like poop.

    that's some class A comedy right there man. lol
