I just installed the BOV last week and I've always heard that it wasn't that much louder than stock. But I have to say that this thing is loud. It has a huge whoooooosh and then I get kind of a whistle but not really after it that lasts a good 2 seconds. People look from all around. Does this kind of describe what you guys are getting from noise out of urs? The screw is in about half way so I think its tight enough. My peak boost is only about 14.5. So basically it just seems a bit wierd for it to be that loud.

Who told you that the Type-S wasn;t much louder than stock? Mine was quite loud ... I couldn't even hear the stock one :).

I can't say as though I'm complaining about it being loud. In fact I am quite pleased that it is much louder than I expected. However is that whistle a normal thing after the initial whoosh is done?

Yeah.

You should hear a whoosh, followed by a whistle, with the Type-S.

Mine sounds more like a mouse being strangled than a whistle. :eek:

Really? No wonder Speeyuk didn't want to ride in my car any more. And I thought all along that it was him! :eek: :D

Yes, that about sums it up. The whistle went away for me when I set the BOV all the way over to the "hard" setting .. I have about 3/4'' of screw sticking out of the top of it right now .. that seemed to work the best ..

Another thing you can do is, go into the intake tract where the BOV returns the air .. there is this restrictive plastic tee looking thing inside there .. just yank it out .. the BOV is MUCH louder now :D
