I honestly wouldn't put a aftermarket BOV on your TC..... If you install a good intake such as the K&N 69-4518TTK you'll get the sound you're looking for!! I don't have an external BOV and my car sounds awesome!!! I'd return it and get the K&N system, I have them in stock as well!

Kind regards,

Yea you cant put an aftermarket BOV on the stock piping. You have to get new piping with a flange to add the BOV. And there isnt a BOV that will work the same place as your stock one.

block off plate. Yes you will need that. Or you can do what Magna flow said and keep your stock BOV. Get a intake and charge piping and you will hear it alot better.

I know that I don't have the TC and this is what I am curious about:

If you do the intake and charge piping, I know that you would hear the whistle from the TC but would you hear a nasty little grimlin shriek with the stock BOV??

That is what I would make the TC sound like the first day I would get one. Like:

Whaaaaaaaaaarrrrrrraaaaaaa. Pshhhhhh-EEEEEELLEEEEEEEEEWWWEEEEELLLEEEE!

Yea your going to hear it stock, but not as good as you would with charge piping and intake with the recurc hose. all that is, is the extra air going back into your intake.

no, you have to get a aftermarket bov to make it loud or louder then stock.

not true i had a modified air box before i go the hahn intake and charge piping, and i heard a vast improvement of bov noise just from the air box mod, no real power gains to speak of but huge improvement as far as noise goes
