I've been VTA for about a year now, but now that I'm tuned it sounds completely different. Sometimes its a ppsshhh sound but now its almost like a  whistle. Like in this video.

Cool.... can hardly wait to see if I get the same sound with the double sized VTA opening on the PPE hotpipes... hopefully by Wednesday.

The factory BoV set-up on the hotpipes has exactly twice the vent area (two vent holes for each BoV)... more opening size, same pressure and volume.. may be less whistle... dunno 'til i get my SHO back Tues evening and then get the tune loaded.

Officially joined the VTA crew yesterday, took about 10min. Decided to go the ole' 1" rubber chair foot route for now.

Also, found a couple different ideas out there to 'enhance' the blow off noise. GoFastBits offers a trumpet that attaches to their blow-off valves (one for 13psi+ and one for 13 and under)...makes me wonder if something like this could be attached to the 1" port to make it louder or more 'whistley'.


Anyone interested in something like this? or too ricey?

I was wondering if anyone offered anything like that to "enhance" the sound.  Granted, it's just noise fluff.  But you can barely hear it outside the car.

Dumb question, but I just want to make sure I'm doing this right (planning on knocking it out next weekend when I'm back in town). The rubber chair tips go on the returns and the (optional) K&N filters would go on the blow off valve's, correct?

I view capping the exit on the BoVs as optional.  I do have EBPF hotpipes.  So appearance was good and I get a more audible Pffft, no turbo whine even running LMS v8.  I do not have any evidence of oil, etc. under hood or or on/in the BoV outlet ports (polished bright aluminum)... I question restricting thes ports personally.  So I think optional for the filters.
BTW... Another reason I am researching utility of a catch can again before I install it.

That's why I wanted to confirm the K&N piece as well.  I don't want to just leave the blow off valves sitting there wide open, but I wasn't sure if the K&N filters would restrict the ability to dump pressure.

Out of curiosity, why not?

When the valve is closed, the opening is just a port; it doesn't go anywhere. When the eBOVs are open there is positive pressure, so my understanding is that there's really no way for anything to enter the system past the eBOVs even without a filter.

I can't think of a way to even test it... so on the hotpipes I had the number of ports doubled... the actual valve seat and BoV plunger  are visible... No problems for 1800 miles or even when I had the engine detailed and a pressure washer was used.  I have the concern also... just don't know which is best.... need to think of a way to prove it one way or the other.

As another alternative to those interested, I only disconnected from the BOV side and left the intake side of the tubes attached.  I then found the appropriate size "plug", which turned out to be a 1/2" PVC Cap.  I pushed the caps into the tubs and pulled the clamp back up over the caps.  Seems to be working well so far, and should be easier to reattached to stock if I want to for warranty work.

Definitely quick and easy!

My dealer considers it "air in - air out" as I left the EPP hotpipes (VTA and delete the noisemaker) in place.  No problems.
