HKS SSQV is your best bet - technically because it's dual stage, it'll recirculate air back so that you won't be running as rich between shifts (from what I understand).

I have a Turbo XS RFL which is REALLY loud (louder than the SSQV) but is not dual stage. It circulates a little back and if you use two washers for it, you probably shouldn't feel any rough idling. I love my RFL - it's loud, and sure, it runs a bit rich but that only means every now and then my exhaust pops (which is kinda cool )

Here's a link to videos I recently took of my exhaust with the Turbo XS RFL bov. There's also one clip of jus the BOV.

The RFL doesn't circulate anything, its 100% atmospheric. I've had mine on for about 4 months, no problems, really loud when you want it to be. I also have a vid of mine in the video section.

The HKS is atmospheric too. I would get either one of those is you want sound. I have the RFL, and it's loud as crap. I've heard an HKS SSQV, it's loud but it doesn't sound like the RFL. But anyway, they're both good.

Sig edited due to rules, sorry

I have an HKS SSQV and a girl i know has the TXS RFL on her car. From inside the car mine is way more noticable at WOT shifts and you can't hear hers at 3k shifts like you can mine. Personally I love the SSQV, never gave me 1 problem.

Idles like it did stock, never noticed it running rich between shift, but I have never really monitered it. If it does run rich its for a fraction of a second.
