my buddy has an aem intake on his MR and you can hear the stock BPV when it shifts. not necessary to purchase a A/M bov when you are stock. save your money and throw it towards an intake if you want sound
I have the HKS SSQV 3 VTA, no problems here. The person I bought it from told me his car threw codes. If you let off the gas after building boost, you'll definitely hear the BOV.
i also have an HKS SSQV vented to atmosphere, and i love it.I love the clear whistle sound even at low boost levels!
Your in luck! this weekend i just installed my 50/50 TS dual port on my ww evo x MR... my car may not be happy its not full recirc, but im happy with it and thats all that matters.. it makes a really really loud wooshhh sound... not like the no noise stock BOV. It blows off very easily at 3500+ RPM by just letting off throttle. I didnt get to test the stock BOV with an intake, but i may later (my AEM comes intoday). however, if i can figure out how to uploud my video you can hear the sound of the BOV w/ stock everything else. Also, its runs perfect if not a touch smoother and I wanted a wooshh, and not a psshh. Hope this helps.I've been looking at getting a turbosmart bov for the sole purpose of that splash sound it makes. Car is totally stock with no mods. But i have been told that technically I wont get that nice splash sound due to the sst never taking the load off and always have that continuous contact with the clutch and if I did it would be a minimal squeek and that the only way I can obtain that splash is to actually let off of the gas... Is this true? Can any MR owners chime in, much appreciated.

What values should I be looking at/monitoring?Check your logs and you'll see that it does negatively affect your car. VTA is not a great idea.
Eyler, im running a TS BOV without tune, how bad is it? Ive definetly noticed im using more gas, and i know they make you run a bit more rich, but how bad is it exactly?Check your logs and you'll see that it does negatively affect your car. VTA is not a great idea.
You won't hear it between shifts, but you'll hear it if you let off the gas while in boost.I'm running TS BOV and its loud as hell!! i didnt think they work on SST's??? cos your foot is always floored on shifts??
Essentially, at higher gears you're going to run much richer. In fourth and fifth gear with my SSQV3 vented, I was pegging my AFR gauge at 10 and it wasn't moving. There will be people claiming that the MAF and MAP sensor negate this, but logs show that's not true. Talk to some of the big tuners and they can explain it better. It has to do with unmetered air being let out of the system and the car not accounting for that.Eyler, im running a TS BOV without tune, how bad is it?
