    Well, if the uppipe is leaking, you won't be making proper amounts of boost. That could be it. If you're not making boost, you won't be blowing any off...that didn't sound right, but you get the idea Do you have a gauge to see how much boost you're making?

    Question TurboXS RFL or Forge?!?!?!?!?

    At first I was going for the TXS RFL b/c it looks SICK and i heard it actually is really fu<#ing loud! But there is so much talk about the Forge. I know the RFL is about $180 and that it's very loud, and I know that the Forge is very reliable. My question is, how much is the Forge, and which one is "better"?

    I'd hate to tell you this, but I think I see a whole lot of A$$ rippin coming your way in the ways of "why don't you use the search button?" There are tons of info within the forum.

    Well just put my StealthFX GFB hydrid in. A snap to install even for me. Love the sound. Alot better throttle response and the turbo doesnt drop as much between shifts.

    And being adjustable on venting mixture and BOV volume it's so perfect. When I want to just cruise quietly I can turn it all the way down. And adjust it perfectly for no stalling backfire or any other problems.

    OR run it to full atm vent and sound all the way up for scaring old people and terrorizing honda and mustang drivers.
    You can hear this thing for 2 blocks when it's all the way up..
    It was 240 but I think it was worth the extra since I think the sound would get annoying all the time at the same volume. The option to turn it down is a must have IMO.

    It's loud its cheap and it's not adjustable I dont think, you will have rough idle problems and posibly stalling. I did with this one till I fined tuned it. I would not reccomend a 100% BOV for those with stock boost

    Well maybe you should spend that time that you are awake reading the first page of this thread. I clearly posted a link to a vendor with pictures, prices, and a sound clip.

    From a performance standpoint, your factory BOV is extremely good. Many top tuners choose to leave the stock BOV in place.

    Resist the rice urge! Spend your money on performance.

    Do us all a favor: work on learning how to drive your car before adding more power. Pretty please.

    Very weird. I was hoping someone with this BOV would see this thread and try to help, but I don't think a lot of people have it. I'm thinking this could just be how this BOV sounds. I really don't know what else to tell you bro. Again, just try to contact the vendor or anyone that sells this product, and ask them for advice. Please, keep me posted as to what happens. Later
