Default Forge BOV from Stratmosphere

What a sweet sound it has. I got my Forge BOV from www.stratmosphere.com . This piece is VERY well made and it is almost a shame to put it under the hood where you can't see it all of the time. I do not notice any real performance gain as I have not uprated the pressure system (read turbo) yet. Sooo if you are interested you can ask for Bob or Pete at Stratmosphere 716-533-1777 and they will take care of you.

Im also thinking of the Stoptech brake kit too.

I also bought a DV for my wifes Passat 1.8T from them and it is sweet too.

Thumbs up

i'm not sure what else there is to say here. this piece is really awesome, and very well-made, not to mention easy to install! (even i couldn't mess it up!)

actually went on a quick run with it. my mom said, 'if i didn't know what that noise was, i'd think your car was broken.'

i know already that i'm going to be wasting a lot more gas just to hear the sounds of the bov!

Talking Reviving a dead thread

Just got back from Compact Nat's in Carlisle, PA over the weekend (750+ mile round trip.) What a show. I'd guess over 5k+ vehicles in all. An absolute blast.

I picked up a Forge BOV (Atmo) from a fellow I-club member (Matt,) for a song. The whole trip home was nuts. I could not for the life of me stop downshifting into 3rd gear on the PA turnpike to hear the psshh over, and over on upshifts.

What a great piece. No matter if it's just for sound, I love it.

Jim

PS - Lot's of pics on my web site for all to enjoy!
