    If you're stock, why don't you just remove your intake silencer. I can Hear the Turbo spooling hella loud and I've scared some people on the sidewalk shifting. PSSSSHHHTTTT.... subtle yet incredible in its stock form. Because it recirculated you get a whirling whoosh sound instead of a dumping PSHT of an atmosphere one.

    it matters how u install it too..........
    did u install it 50/50 vent or 100%?
    on 50/50 u get a louder sound the more higher u switch gears
    but on the 100% i think it is a constant loud sound most of the time

    I have the gfb set on 100%,and its pretty loud. Im not sure how loud it is from outside the car,but inside,it is quite loud. Its more of a whoosing sound, as oppose to the squeak that the hks gives off.

    Yes the install was pretty easy, didnt take no more than 15 mins. As far as voiding the warranty, I highly doubt it unless the bov causes some problem with the engine.

    Installing a BOV

    How hard is it to install a GFB BOV or any BOV? Have any of you done it?

    i still have my stocker, but i have taken it off numerous times for cleaning of my IC and installing stuff.
    all you do is remove the two bolts and the hose going into the BOV... then make sure you have an aftermarket BOV that bolts right in (like the GFB BOV). put the gasket on, then the new BOV, then bolt it down tight, and finally put the hose back on...
    thats it, i believe, pretty easy install.

    will the BOV come with the gasket, or a new gasket?

    I've seen Frank (one of the guys at Autospeed) put one on his...that one hose seemed to be a pain to do.

    In regards to the PITA hose aka the intake return hose if you install a system that vents 100% of the air to the atmosphere, this hose is no longer used, it simply gets plugged, making the installation significantly easier. If you install a 50/50 or 100% recirculating BOV like the GFB or APS then you will have to deal with the hose, but it just takes patience. BOV is one of the easiest things to install on our cars thanks to it's easy to reach location and 2 bolt attachment. I'm still using the stocker, but I'm getting kinda jealous when I hear my buddies GFB so I may have to spring for their new Super Stealth Adj. Valve soon

    Good Luck, enjoy the car!

    i dont know if it comes with a new gasket, but im sure that if it doesnt then you could use your original one.
