what is the best blow off valve in terms of sound. I like the HKS Super Sequential but i'm not sure if there any blow off valves louder than that. Let me know

I run a HKS SSBOV, no issues, works flawless.

Most will rate a blowoff value by its sound and have no clue what it is actually doning. The louder the better to most.

Top Fuel by far!

most unique sound imho. At low boost (1-5 psi or so) mix the HKS SSQBOV and the sound that the stock bov makes when it's shot (the flutter).

At higher boost, it sounds like a higher pitched SSQBOV.

It's not REALLY loud tho.

And it has a neat blue anodized color to it. I don't think anyone else has it on the mk3 forums :D

Blitz BOV by far... sounds like a the stocker except 10 times louder. A nice loud rush of air.

I actually just done boosting around inside a parking garage with the top off just listening to that awesome sound and scaring the crap out of people! :D

it does but you can't hear it past the engine noise...then it flutters once you have an aftermarket intake


IdealSupra: by the way, those pictures i owe you on the Blitz DTT....man, freaking digital camera broke on me!!! [email protected]!!! :mad: on top if that, it wasnt even mine!!! :mad: :mad: luckily, my sis has a warranty on it (hopefully, it's covered *cross-fingers*) enough of my probs....LOL

HAHAH here is the scoop ... ssqv SUCKS

Tail = Best Performance
Type S Greddy (i hate greddy products) = Sounds the best


I have the Type S........ Works good actualy..... But IMO i would go with the Type S up to 550 RWHP then you may need a bigger BOV becuase you are prob pushing more boost than the Type S can handle.

hey man yeah its all good.....i got it figured out with a little help from some of the other members.....got the safety feature on the emergency brake on, the blue wire cut so the stock alarm works with it, and figured out how to hook up the vacuum hose to boost sensor hose and drilled a hole through the firewale next to the steering column.....works great......the only problem i have with it is the place its mounted i cant see it when im driving because of the windshield wiper knob so the boost gauge is kinda useless haha....oh well its a turbo timer i gotta keep reminding myself of that!

now to fix that coolant leak i have somewhere! sheesh...lol i love this car! :D


oh yeah and by the way my friend has a blitz BOV and it sounds pretty good a nice sharp whistle......doesnt seem late to met.

My all time favorite is the HKS Racing. There was a video not too long ago that had a T-51R Black MKIV up against a 351 Mustang w/ spray. That T-51 either had the HKS Racing or the Greddy Type R. Damn that thing sounded sweet.

I have never had a single issue w/ my SSQ. I have had and heard pretty much all of them and at one time or another, sold most of them too. For most people it's the sound. How loud, and it's noise. I've had the Greddy. I've had the Blitz. Greddy was nice but mine for some reason leaked boost like crazy. Didn't know why. The Blitz was just not loud enough for me. Didn't really sound strong enough. My SSQ does not do the flutter that everyone says it does. I have my adjustment screw down pretty far to where it only opens after about 3 or 4 psi and that's enough to not allow the flutter. Absolutely love it. Everyone can bag on it all they want and can argue here or there, but it's really what you like and what works and sounds best to you. :)
