First things first...Ive done the search. While I browsed through a few threads none of them had what I was looking for. I dont know which turbo sound I like better....the chirp or the psssht. Either way which BOVs achieve which sound. I read that getting a cai w/ stock bov will produce the sound but it will be very low. Im looking for a nice semi loud turbo sound.

i'm not 100% sure on this, but i think that the chirp is because the BOV feeds back into the intake, and if you want a louder "psshhhhhht" then you gotta vent it into the atmosphere. correct me if i'm wrong...

My HKS BOV is in recirc and I get the psshhttt - it made the same noise with the stock BOV but with the HKS it's louder and more, lets say, definite.

I don't think it has anything to do with whether you recirc or vta.

My now recently re-installed HKS BOV emits more of a bark or a cough at full boost with a gently, fluttering pssht at partial boost.
