BOV and Diverter Valve comparissons
 
I'm going to be boosting my '05 ST soon with the FSWerks Stage 2 kit and for whatever reason, I can't seem to find any videos or sound clips of the standard Bosch diverter valve the kit comes with. I want to know what it sounds like, since that's a mildly important aspect of having a turbo kit. I was thinking about upgrading to a BOV, but I still don't know what those sound like on a Focus.

Do any of you have sound clips of videos of your own that can show me what you have and what your cars sound like?

Diriviter valve only. Blow off valves shoot already metered air out of the system.

Yeah since the FSW kit is a suck through set up you'd be blowing off metered air to atmosphere. I HIGHLY recommend upgrading to the FSW diverter valve (DV20). It's only a $100 upgrade and it sounds AWESOME!!

Moved to "General Forced Induction & Ecoboost".

Thanks for your input. I'll go with that then. I was considering the FSWerks diverter valve upgrade too because of the subtle nature of diverter valves and because a black one wouldn't stand out.

@PSUrivie do you have any sound clips?

I'll look. I might have one on my laptop somewhere.
