Default kompact plumb valve!

I have ordered a full recirculating valve from turbosmart and installed it yesterday. It is as quite as the stock one. Any chance to make its sound louder? I expected a higher sound as 50/50 BOV.

Getting a short ram intake or CAI will make your turbo louder. Go that route with a tune instead of the BOV route.

I whole heartedly feel sorry for this car. You do not need a cold air intake. You need to remove the snorkel from the intake system, that will make it louder. If you really want it to give you that BOV sound then buy one and live with the consequences.

If you feel sorry for him, don't tell him to get a BOV.

I will get one and I will tune my car (Ecutec) or Cobb APP. I know the consequences of having a BOV or CAI without a tune.

Thanks for the info guy

The TurboSmart Kompact is a very nice valve, but it is very quiet.

Correct me if I'm wrong, you can tune for VTA if you're speed density

Clark Turner (a very reputable e tuner here on nasioc) said in a facebook post "Examples would be a smoother running engine and no stumble if you are running a blow off valve."

From what ive been told, you can run a bov if you are running speed density, without any conesquences. I personally know someone running speed density and using an HKS SSQV bov, not recirculated and has zero issues.
