    Not true, if you do as I did, and put a constant drip of boost fluid INTO the BOV, then it is teH fastar.

    I suggest you get the GFB hyrbid or the WORX. They are both 50/50 vent, meaning 50 % vent, 50% back to intake. They will be the best for performance, and will be not as loud as the rest.


    hope this helps,
    Steve

    I had a GFB Hybrid 50/50 & tried setting it at 50% and 100% and either way it sucked ass!!

    It made me hate BOV's

    However I have heard great things about the WORX and the HKS SSQ. If I ever want to waste a couple hundred bucks on a noise, I will probably get one. Actually I might get the HKS, not sure yet.

    I know alot of people have liked the GFB but not me.

    You mean the stock BOV can hold up to 20 psi? Amazing.

    There is a reason why we told you to look into it.

    Yeah, I actually used a line from the turbo to pressurize my 55 gallon blinker fluid tank. I then filled the tank (Which is pulled behind my car on a 4x8 trailer by an aftermarket APC trailer hitch (70ta||y 7r1cK) w/ 110 octane boost fluid. NOW, not ONLY is my BOV Teh FastAr, but my blinkers are t3h fa57Ar as well. <----Fast like that. (And *almost* as furious.)
