surge sound? i think you're refering to the extended blowing off sound? if so you're looking at the HKS SSQV...

I mean like this thing http://youtube.com/watch?v=tXqgTtHECnk , http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=NQAcVgKPXG4&NR=1 can you extend BOV with a flutter or somethining like that? For example HKS or other BOV brand ?
as someone is that youtube video said, "don't do it, the sound you hear is the air hitting the compressor as it goes back"

The closest you can get without killing ur turbo is to use HKS SSQV. Unlike other BOVs which simply dumps air, SSQV releases pressure over a controlled period of time.

So the SSQV should have a extended "air release sound", but not a flutter.

i could take the recirculating hose off mine and record the sound for you, lol.
the stock one will make a little noise, but dont drive around with it off. your car will stall.

you should recirculate it. if you have a 50/50 option, try it. but i would go with the full recirc.

Yeah let us know. I like the whoosh sound, but I want it to have the proper AFR. I was thinking that a 50/50 would work well cause it does both.

after i get a new tire ill record a vid of how my car sounds all i did was replace the stock airbox with a 20 dollar cone filter and you can hear the BPV and the whoosh from the wastegate there both pretty loud too. and here i was gonna spend the money on a new BOV too for the sound

has anyone checked to see if the older wrx bovs fit on the new wrx. I was wondering, cause those bov are a lot cheaper then the legacy ones and if the fitment is the same then I might go that route.

the older WRX BOVs do not fit the 2008 models. i am pretty sure the LGT ones do.

Hey, do note the BOV for the legacy ones can fit the stock 08 WRX intercooler.

I got info back that the older gen WRX BOVs will NOT fit on the new WRX. I guess we have to use the same stuff as the legacy.... I was told that the flange is different.
