    im not really the internet argueing type. i apolgize if i have said anything offensive. i am a turbo diesel mechanic and i have been working on school buses all day in a 106+ degree weather so i guess i wasnt in the mood for a sarcastic remark. to each there own i respect the fact that you are a car enthusiast and again i apologize i was just looking for an answer. i didnt mean to get hostile, but the arizona sun makes me feel like **** at the end of the day. i am not saying this so i wont get banned or anything(i really could give a **** about an internet forum banning me) but i have a motto that is make more friends than enemies. so i thank you for telling me that the stock one is better i know that but i have always thought that a bov lets everone around you know that your car is turboed and i guess that is why i like it a little ricey yes but i like it and that is why i got the car so i could do things that i like.

    No hard feelings here. We just get BOV questions so much. I am one of the nicer ones about it though. Good luck on fixing it, and try to stay out of the sun. I had a cat that died from skin cancer.

    Aftermarket recirculation valves are absolute no different than the stock recirculation valve except that they can hold more boost. If you can't hear your stock recirculating valve, you're not going to hear an aftermarket recirculating valve, simply as that.

    Put on your flame suit.

    Not a good idea. It will cause your MAF sensor to read rich. Which results in fouled spark plugs and what not. Your car will also not idle very well. The stock recirculation unit works just fine.

    even if you got a show off valve, not sure how it would sound on an automatic transmission anyway. the car probably shifts before enough boost is built up to make the "wooosh" sound.
