Question Loudest BOV?

Looking to see what kind of BOV to use on an aftermarket RS kit. the kit uses the old legacy turbo VF11 and runs at 5 psi (weak eh?)... What BOV is the best for this application? and preferably loudest with such low boost?

Loud and annoying, TurboXS RFL. Got so annoying that I sold it and bought a Greddy which is much better.

You know nothing about turbos, but are putting an aftermarket turbo kit on your rs? I am assuming a shop is doing the work for you, and you have researched this project a lot...

Sounds cool though, and good luck. My friend's MR2 has the HKS SSQ and it sounds pretty good. It has the high pitched sounds. He used to have a Blitz which was more of a whoosh. The HKS is better because it is not spring operated and won't leak. Also it has a faster response.

1. 5 psi isn't "weak" on an RS-T.

2. Go with the one that works best for low boost. (The AVO one is good)

3. Why the loudest? Need the attention?

My buddy has a TXS RFL and it is rather anoying because it is high pitched (at least at 8psi). I have a TXS H-34 (at 6psi) which both me and my buddy agree sounds like how a BOV should sound and you have the option to run a recirc setup (MAF turbo egines is the sux). It sounds fairly loud, and gives a nice satisfying ching

I have an HKS bov and I kind of want to sell it. It is really annoying because sometimes it chatters due to low boost. It really isnt as cool as you think it is. I own one and I should know. I don't use it anymore. Atmosphere BOV's are so stupid. You don't hear a Benz going pssst or a Porsche... It isnt classy to go pssst. Unless you have A CIVIC. Then you need all the pssst you can get, because a Civic is made out of poo.
