Which BOV? Loudest BOV with best performance

Alright, i have a stock 02 wrx. All i have done so far is the intake silencer delete. Now I have read that putting a BOV on my car will not be so good. Regardless I want to purchase the best BOV that will give me a nice and loud sound, but not harm my engine too bad.
I am looking into getting the GFB hybrid, but im not sure it will be loud enough?
I also went to extremes to even get the Turboxs RFL BOV or HKS SSQV.
It seems that all the 50/50 BOV's aren't very loud, or are there some 50/50's that are loud???

Basically I want the loudest BOV that will hurt my engine the least.

thanks for your help

+1 to that. Please for your safety do the search and read the Pros and Cons of them. Its not really in your best interest right now to throw away money and maybe even performance like that.

The HKS will make NO Noise with the recirc fitting... I have it on right now, but I hacked the noise maker and set it inside the recirc fitting... it makes a little noise, now, but not for people around to notice.

the hks non recirculated will give u more of a high pitch noise. but id go with the hybrid its not worth the money either way, trust me i made the mistake of not listening to everyone and spent the $ but now it jus collects dust.

I have had my SSQV for over 2 years now with no issues. But there are no perfomance gains ona stock car. Only upgrade if you want noise, want to possibly have idle issues, want to possibly run rich, or upgrade your turbo have gotten a tune and plan on running over 18-20psi boost.

I have tried 6 diffrent bov's, The car runs best with the stock one. The worx tuning one is pretty decent too. but If you have to have 100 % atmosphere (for noise) I like the hks. It is very respsonsive and you can buy diffrent rings to change the sound.

I would like to try a forge or aps that recirulates though. Anyone tried these?

I had no idle problems with the GFB hybrid and it sounded good.
