what to choose from, i need help

ok so i have read all the forums on what a BOV is and how it works, but i need some help finding the one i like the most.
i have come to the conclusion that i dont like the very high pitched bov
i also came to the conclusion that i want a bov that sounds good and that is 50/50 so i can recirculate it
also, if anyone can send me audio clips of their bov it would be greatly appreciated

Im not goignt to sit and preach about why you dont need a blow off valve and yada yada... if you are set on getting one and want it high pitched, the HKS Super Sequential is the way to go

He said he doesn't want high pitched. TurboSmart makes a nice 50/50 valve. Or Go Fast Bits. Sorry, I don't have a clip.

If you do a intake silencer delete, and put in a good panel filter you can stick with your stock, or use a recirculating BOV, and you'll get that nice "rush of air, psssssh" sound. If you stick with recirculating, you may as wells stay stock untill you're running a bigger turbo. Put the 200 towards a Cobb AP.

I have the Turbosmart Dualport and It has a very nice almost stealthy sound. It is a 50/50 and with a quick twist can be adjusted for sound. If you want something that isn't high pitched i'd suggest that one.

I have a forge diverter valve on mine. Theyre nice ass quality, and a good price. I mean they have blow off models, i havent really heard one though so i couldnt tell ya. But mine sounds really nice, and its more of the whoosh sounds as apposed to the high pitched sqeak sound that youre talking about. Ya i dont really like that either.
