Forge V1 on a 2013 wrx??

Hello, My Forge V2 came in the mail today for my 2013 wrx. Did the quick install and played around with the springs and shims. The sell point on this valve was the ping sound, I liked that ping!! I didn't do enough reserch to see that the new ones do not ping...However I cannot find a V1 that will fit a 2013 wrx with its diamond seal. Can you put the V1 on the new wrx's? I am considering selling my V2 forge bpv because I wanted the ping!!

The sound a valve makes is dependent on the amount of boost. Lower boost is more of a woosh sound while higher is much shorter but more pronounced 'ping' sound.

Plus BPV are quieter than BOV setups which is what you might have heard on someone else's car. You however can not have a BOV and must stick with a BPV setup...which you may already know...just sayin though lol!

The V1 and V2 on the Speeds is distinct between versions. Not based on boost. V1 is the sword fighting, the V2 that I have is the whoosh sound.

I have the 08+ Forge Reciculating BPV and it also makes the "swoosh" sound which is what I like. I'm only running about 18psi though.

I've had friends who've added mods, got tuned, and had a higher or more "ping" sound where they use to have a "swoosh" sound though which lead me to believe it was boost related as well...hmmm

The differences in version I can't confirm, but I can tell you that from a previous valve the sound does change after going from 17 psi to 22.

Interesting. Never noticed on my 07wrx... maybe I got used to it. Then again, with all the sounds, it's hard to hear ANYTHING
