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 hear the recirculating BOVs are better for the turbo the vent to air. Anyone have an opinion?

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.

Why full Recirc? I have been wondering, I have heard different opinions. If recirc is the Perrin any good.

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.

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.

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.
