    Greddy Type-S BOV issues?

    Sup guys,

    Had a question about my BOV, maybe possible issues or a boost leak? I can BARELY hear my BOV. As I stated in my topic post Im using a Greddy Type-S running 15lbs of boost. Im recirculating and understand that defiently muffles the sound, but even when I remove the tube to circulate it sputters and is still almost silent.

    The reason for my concern is my buddy has an 02 rex with the same BOV basically stock, intake, axleback and his BOV is loud as hell? I have mine tuned to as loud as possible. Im just baffled at the silence it emits. Not that Im looking for an obnoxious sounding wooooooshhhh and I understand aftermarket BOVs arent the best option, just wondering why mine is so low.

    Thanks in advance.

    Ya, at 15lbs you head a mild wooosh but its still almost silent. My buddy at 5lbs of boost sounds obnoxiously loud. My boost doesnt hold very well at full throttle though as well. It sputters a bit and spikes to 16 17 somtimes. Im assuming that would have to do with either a boost leak or the turbo not being made to be running that high stock. I rarley rarely ever take her to 15lbs, the car is babyd to hell.

    Nontheless BOV still almost silent. Any other ideas?
