    Either way, it looks better/performs at least the same/sounds cooler and louder then stock.

    I'll get one eventually

    WOW that sounds great! It sounds like a lot like a Blitz BOV...but for $100 less!

    Any idea where the mic was mounted to get that sound? The engine sounds awesome by itself...heh

    see Verdugo knows what's up.

    i think Blitz BOV SPITS it out like. TurboXS sound like XPLODING soda can, HKS is a SQUEAL or firing off a missle/rocket. and Forge sound like a mix of all of them.

    I DIG IT

    Yeah...I've always loved the sound of the Blitz, but for ~$250, it was a little too rich for my blood, especially since it's even more useless for me because I'm in a 4EAT. But, for $150...I can go with this

    Is that from inside the cabin or with the hood up or something?

    Wow 150 aint bad at all. might have to try another bov again, at 100 less then the aps I tried first. One question, does it leave any hoses open? I figure if it doesn't recirculate air then maybe some hose doesn't attach to it. Does everything hook up to it like normal?

    V1 or v2?

    V1 is not going to be very BOV friendly from what I hear.

    V2 is much better - and I have been told that AT LEAST the TXS Type H and HKS SSQV fit.

    it comes with the plug for the stock return hose.

    I think the sound clip is from inside the car with the windows down.

    i really wanna get one of these, i'm just still nervous about the side effects (bad ones)with a 100% atmosphere. Aussie, how long has it been in, and how long should it take before you would notice a rich running car?

    I have had it in a week now. You would notice it straight away - you would also hear the BOV leaking at other times.

    You will only get a rick run condition when it is letting air out - ie between shifts.

    Forge will send you free replacement springs of differing strength to get it running right.
