    Bov

    I was just curious if any of you with auto have a BOV. If you do, how does it sound in an auto? I've never heard one in an auto

    Thanks guys

    I had the TurboXS BOV type H on mine awhile back. Sounded great, I did have some minor back fires (sounded cool though), but it ran good. You get the sound when you back off the gas.

    I went back to stock as soon as I upgraded the intercooler.

    I have one (Forge 100% atmospheric) and the sound is the same but it happens much less often since the auto car doesn't close the throttle plate between shifts and your boost doesn't drop (well maybe a little) between shifts so no need to vent. As Big Joe said you can make it go off by hitting full boost and easing off the throttle but short of doing this intentionally it doesn't go off very often. I've also found that on stock boost control I don't hear it much at all but with my MBC connected I hear it more often because I go to full boost more often (at part throttle).

    i bought a used Forge off of ebay, and put it on today. so far, so good. car seem to run just as healthy, and the sound is neat. it's a very quick pssshhh, i thought and wanted it to be a little longer. it's not too loud, but you can definetely hear it. i recommend forge.

    Ok seriously I dont normally just say noob do a search but 1bad03wrx has posted 7 times and 5 of his post are i want a blank which one is the best? And not one of them is a rare question. I could understand if you were looking for some personal experiance on a certain product that you could not find enough information on but all of your questions could easily be answered by a quick search if you do not find your answer then at least you will be more informed about the products you are looking in instead of asking "I want some 18 inch wheels, which are the best?"(<--a question in one of his other threads)

    I didnt bash you at all I was joking in my first post and in my last post I simply told you how you can use the forum to help you learn more about your car.

    And yes this is a forum to ask questions and to talk about things but people get tired of answering the same questions day after day, in the case of this bov post I have seen at least 3 post just like this within the last week. And if you notice in your other post Im not the only person recommending a search.

    BJ-

    Why did you go back to stock after you upgraded the IC?

    The TurboXS version 1 of their top mount intercooler is too big for an aftermarket BOV. It would bump against the hood. Oh well.
