Default Forgemotorsports BOV at neonparts.net

They don't show these on their website yet, but it fits in the stock SV/BOV location. From previous posts it's suppose to be available in recirculating or venting to the atmosphere (pics looks like a recirculating one) The advantage of this one over stock is
EDIT:
1. that you can order springs to adjust to get rid of flutter and leaking
2. stiffer spring to run higher boost levels 20psi per forgemotorsport (of course not on stock turbo)
3. won't blow off at vacuum
4. plus it looks stock.

PICS:



here's a couple posts about this BOV on the SRT forums, second link is just neonparts.net posting that they have them in stock.

So what is the difference with a recirculating BOV, does it recirculate air back to where and what? Pardon my ignorance. Here is a link on how the Forge BOV sounds: http://www.hateguild.net/vid/srt4/forge_bov.mp3 Can anyone tell me how the sound differs to the Mopar BOV.

Really hard to gauge from that clip as they didn't put the mic on the car and instead just drove by it. Just from what I heard I'd say the Mopar BOV has a lower tone and a more pronounced whoosh than what's on the clip.

the topic of mopar bov VS. aftermarket bov has been beaten to death...

Forge makes very good VW parts for the 1.8T. If you wanna know the difference that an aftermarket bov will make to just modding your stock dv to make it similar to a bov...just run more boost or talk to any serious turbo racer and ask them what they think.

Just got a Forge Motorsports BOV installed on my pt. I works grest and is a lot louder then the mopar upgrade one. It is easy to install except for the bolt by the oil line. You can also unscreww the top and change the spring after you already have it mounted on. They come in chrome,blue and red I belive. I got the chrome one and you can really here it bow even at low boost. plus it dumps to atmosphere not back into the intake. below is the website.

Tell then Don with the orange Pt sent you

135$ vs 50 for the mopar?

Dont see the advantage? A BOV is a BOV provided it doesnt leak and holds the boost. If the mopar BOV is good enough for a stg 3, then it is good enough for me.

I have a couple of Turbo XS BOV's for my other cars but they were about 125$, people paying 200-300$ for a BOV have to much money $$
