    I personally like the Greddy Type-S BoV. I had it on my 240sx before. I've heard HKS's old and new SSQV BoVs, and others but I just liked the Type-S the most.

    not sure if you guys know this but in most cases the louder the BOV the harder it is on your turbo
    for some reason people buy them for sound and could care less about how well they work

    I myself am not a cool dude I run a HKS BOV thats not very loud at all yet it does a VERY good job of getting the air out and thats all I care about

    :withstupid: Everyone talks about banning rice but it seems to me like worrying about how a BOV sounds instead of how it works is rice. If its super loud its just gonna bring attention, not exactly like, but same concept as buying a F&F wing and isnt it....

    I agree! But if he really wants a loud BOV TurboXS makes the RFL BOV! RFL stands for really fuckin loud! But the Greddy type-S is the shit.

    This car is advertisment for my body shop and my buddys import shop.I want it to get all the attention it can get.Thats why I want a loud BOV.I could care less about what people might call Rice.If I wanted i could buy any car I wanted there is no budget.Know what Im sayin.So when people like you laugh because I have a loud BOV youll be doing it while I BLOW your freakin doors off.And If I dont outrun you this week i will be back the next w/something better.If you want to take it to that level.

    try making sounds with your mouth if you hold your lips close together and push air out it will be louder VS having an open mouth and pushing air out all you get is well not much at all

    Colorpros: So when people like you laugh because I have a loud BOV youll be doing it while I BLOW your freakin doors off... try me =)

    what does that have to do with your honda? if you want to play that game I use to work for Ken Keir Race Cars but then again that has nothing to do with hondas so Im not even going to go there

    so back the the ITR thats what Im talking about you started the trash talking about blowing my doors off I only said people who buy BOVs for sound is for the most part a ricer since it does nothing but hurt your turbo

    p.s when you get your street legal honda running 7s at 180+ let me know I would love to fly out there just to see that in person

    Want a loud blowoff valve? Just buy the rice kit from JC Whitney that makes the psssht sound at a certain rpm. No turbo kit needed.
    LMAO
