I don't know if i like my new forge BOV

So today I got some parts from Nick for the aero. I was all excited, so I unpacked the forge BOV and tried it out in the ng (because the aero isn't running yet.) I am not sure I am happy with the sound. It is very high pitched. Is this normal? I like the stock pssssssshhhhhhhhttt better.

If you like the way the stock one sounds you should have just gotten a recirculating valve and ran it atmospheric.

sell it to me for cheap then...

really though, if you liked the stock sound better, then go with a recirculating to atmo. I wish mine was a little louder, sometimes I hear it more from the open intake than from the actual valve.

I personally think that it'll grow on you and you'll start liking it. Give it three days.

i have it, if you running stock boost you should try another spring and see if it will change the sound.

I just put one on a week ago. I enjoy the ridiculous noise it makes. Very vocal as soon as any boost needs released. I like the sound. Not very high pitched until i start achieving full boost. With my driving style around town i rarely reach that.

im not sure if mine is a forge recirc or abbott recirc but its very high pitched and squeaky, theres even a squeal when cold and on light throttle. i may try it the other way around or may even have an air leak somewhere. the stock one certainly sounded better but this was free as it came with my carlsson.

I've got a Forge atmospheric and its pretty damn loud IMO. I don't know if I like that anymore because I attract un-wanted attention.

Those -004s are quiet compared to the dual -001s on my Nira car. It is crazy loud on base boost!

I had an 001 for about a week. I drove with it one day and decided it was too loud and got me too much unwanted attention.

Some of these valves sound good, but some just sound down right tacky!

Yeah, I have Crowley's old valve. Its loud.

Interestingly, it does not attract much attention as far as I can tell.

My car is just a cacophony of loudness and excessive noise...so it just blends right in
