Yea the TXS RFL is good, It scares people when it blows off next to them, I love it.

that is tru its more of a sound mod inless your running over 20lbs of boost. But some people say the dual port ones are the best the ones that vent to the intake and the atmosphere.

unless you are running a good EMS, venting your BOV to the atmosphere will SERIOUSLY hurt your performance.

Actually I think the BOV have its performance, because the BOV blow off the air which you dont need, Then those air wont stuck in your pipe then the turbo can put the air into the engine faster in the next throttle. I think.

We already have a blow off valve on the car. And it works well. So adding another one in its place does NOT add performace to your car, only bling/noise.
