    Yeah I have an RFL and 'm having some troubles. The little spring in it's screwed and at full throttle it'll release at weird times and I'm losing some boost. I should be cruisin more than 20 psi but thanks to this thing it's not happenin. Quite frustrating sometimes but people love to stare in a blanken wonderment of "What was wrong with that car? It just made a loud noise!"
    U R A BUS get it???

    That sounds good, but I think I'm getting the Forge 100%.

    How do you get the BOV to make noise when stopped?

    You must have the older version. They suggest you replace the washers inside... but i dont know the spring your talkin about....

    Question about BOV

    Ok, so I've heard some conflicting things about BOV's. While I know that a BOV does not up your horsepower, can it still provide you with better acceleration because of less spool-up time? Or are they just simply for the sound?

    At the current stock level they are just for sound. The stock BOV actually performs quite well and can handle ~20 psi of boost, there isn't any other reason to get an aftermarket BOV other than sound/image.
