    i ordered it from rallyperformance for $190 (YIKES!)...the only other place i saw them available is directly from forge....they charge $150 but that doesn't include shipping and customs from the UK...

    Is this the right one? It says 2001 but looks identical to the one we have been talking about, and it is only $150 here, or is this the UK site? Even so, I could not imagine shipping fromt he UK could be more than $20, so $170 seems like a good deal.

    I've been thinking about getting one too, however the idea of running into 'problems' scares my wallet too

    After reading this thread I am seriously thinking obout getting a Forge 100%ATM one. I've done a few searches and only read good thing about it.

    A friend of mine just got a GFB StealthFX BOV. It's adjustable from 100% rec. to 100% atm. We had it set at 100% atm and had stumble problems. We backed it off to about 80/20 and the car ran great, no problems at all. Fitment was a PITA, the horn on the atm side blocks the bolt holes in the flange. We had to make a notch in the horn just to get the bolts in Other than the fitment problems and the fact that is cost $260, it is a nice bov.

    Here is a link to the StealthFX http://www.spimotorsports.com/Catalo...ov_1839874.htm

    I had a GFB 50/50 and noticed decrease in throttle response, intermittent hesitations, etc. The noise was cool, but wasn't worth the grief.

    I have the forge, and am VERY happy with it.

    That was the first mod I did, and haven't had any problems in like 3000 miles.

    The only "problem" i have now is that I put on a TXS stealthback and stromung axle back and now the BOV isn't as loud as i would like

    yah, im kinda divided on this too. some (GFB) willingly say that when set to 100% atmosphere, it will cause trouble, yet the Forge100% apparently doesn't. now i see the GFB 50/50 causes problems? and MRT suggests using a BOV that recycles to the intake. could the mere differences in product design give such different results? i really wanna BOV yet am hesitant for the above reasons. leaning toward the Forge though, everyone here that has it says only good things about it. can anyone answer my above questions?

    RexMobbin, it appears that your question and my concerns are identical.

    I guess it's like the old question about how many licks it takes to get to the center of a tootsie-roll pop.

    The world may never know
    Custom 3" cat back and an f'ing BOV.

    Not having cash is a beautiful thing, if you're into slow, stock cars.

    Ive been running the new TurboXS RFL since saturday and not one single problem. Getting the same gas milage, and some smoothness. Only bov's I would get would be the blitz, HKS and the TurboXS RFL. Its said those are the 3 loudest

    i don't really want it THAT loud, ya know? i want it loud enough to be heard by passengers, and maybe other cars, but not so loud that people 2 blocks away can hear, don't wanna attract any negative attention-too much anyway...like our boys in blue.
    i really liked the forge, phreeze, how loud is that RFL? that stands for Really Fukkin Loud, right? well is it?

    HONESTLY, I think its the perfect loudness! But then again, I'm young so maybe thats what I want. Not in my exhaust though But I love the RFL. It is loud. My friend says is really damn loud from the outside. I love it though. If your gonna have a bov, better make sure people can hear it. If not then no point of spending money on it But again, I still con say I'm in love with the sound of the Forge. Dont they guarentee no problems?
