Which brand of blow off valve?

Wondering which BOV I should get. I want a loud deep sound, not the high pitched or sequential type. It's gotta sound like airbreaks, or better.

Someone mentioned to me I should go with HKS for that, but wanted more opinions.

Yeah I heard the Turbo XS RFL and it's the loudest and closest o what I want so far.

Turbosmart is basically the same thing. I think they rip one off of from the other. Only thing I liked about Turbosmart more was they have the Sleeper series, in which the stuff is all black and a little more low key visually. But, I haven't heard any soundbytes from them yet.

The Lexus I was talking about is a silver one that has 644 whp and driving on a freeway at night. Haven't been able to find the video. It was posted on tcc a loooooooooooooong time ago.

HKS SSQ & Greddy Type S are the best sounding hands down. the turbosmart **** sounds stupid. it just loud. it doesn't sound good at all.

Why are you buying a BOV based on sound and not reliability/efficiency? Just thought I'd ask...

Right now I'm not gonna be running high hp. My main thing is I want that specific BOV sound.

If the $ is there for me, I'd love to build a high power motor over the winter.

My main concern for this summer is getting the car on the road, painted, carbon lip, carbon hood, my H&R's and Konis, and maybe the 3" exhaust.

I've already got over 230 hp to start, so I'm good for this summer. And the car won't be winter driven of course. The goal for next summer is 600-700 WHP, no nitrous.
