    ^ thats the best advice anyone can give you....

    Many atmospheric bov's have these problems....there should have been washers w/ the bov....disconnect the vacuum on top, unscrew the cap, look inside....there should be ~4 washers(spacers) inside for proper operation between the cap & the spring...possibly more if you're running higher than stock boost....

    a BOV isn't supposed to be loud, its supposed to release the pressure in your intake after throttle lift.

    Seriously, do a search. This has been discussed to death.

    The long and short of it is: Don't get one. It makes the car run rich. Stupid rich.
