While after over a year running a VTA BOV, I never received a CEL. I will agree with the rest don't do it. If you want a louder BOV sound keep the stocker and if that isn't enough add a whistler clip to your exhaust tip...

There's a recirculation kit.
did not know that, apologize for my lack of knowledge on the hks units. an intake with a recirculated valve is still pretty loud, i have the synapse synchronic vibrant with the agp cai and i can hear it very clear. as for gas mileage, its worse. response compared to stock is much more sensitive, more boost equals less MPG
