I'm in the market for a new one since I'm running a rfl which makes my car run like poop, I'll have to start hunting several options since this one has quite the mixed feelings.... We will just have to wait and see..now won't we?
I personally run the Cobb unit, love it. I have also known people to really like the TurboSmart version. But in that same respect, I know some that had the TurboSmart version, then switched to the Cobb one, and they are happier with the it.
I run this amazing BOV on my car. The ECU loves it and it sounds perfect. It handles way more boost than my car makes. They call it "stock". You should check it out.
Mine does the same exact thing yours does, but its the Cobb XLE BPV. A/F ratios in both full recric and 50/50 are dang near spot on, no driving issues with either, Granted my car is more modified, maybe I could have ran the stock, maybe not. It was in my budget when I upgraded and I couldnt be more happy. Especially now that its recirculated again.
