{UPDATE}----Hey guys, I just got the BOV put in this morning. Very easy to do and man it sounds awesome :shock: The video that Jermaine linked ( http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=nCMtBtl6vkc) is better than what I have, I only had my phone to record video, which is useless. Its not the loudest BOV I have heard but it sounds really good. My friend has a GTI and has the HKS BOV which has a higher pitch sound to it. This one has a deeper, more aggresive tone to it...hard to explain but I think just about anyone would love it :lol: Here are some pics, I hope to possibly get some vids together next weekend.





Talked with Jermaine fromTurboxs about this BOV yesterday and had to order it :p He confirmed that this runs in Rec. mode and VTA and has been tuned to do so correctly. He said it sounds awesome! I"ll post pics and maybe a video after I put it on. It should be here friday :D He also said this car is a beast and it responds to mods very well. With a downpipe,test pipe, CAI, BOV, they have seen 290 WHP and around 320 TQ at the wheels and this is without touching the boost! :p

i never said 350...the k04 is only good for 300whp...someone said 350 and i said it isnt possible...turbos are only engineered to do so much...for example my gt28rs wont ever break 350 on my car...that is why they have a gt30 kit for the speed3...reread what i wrote in the other thread...

you may break into like 310whp but going that high isnt efficient for that turbo...it will cause premature wear and makes it get to hot and work to hard

Re: Ordered the TurboXS Hybrid BOV!

Wouldn't the stock bov sound like that with an intake on, like the one you have installed and are you becoming an authorized vendor or not?

the turbo isnt restricted by your HP at all...the problem is if you attempt to push more PSI or CFM than the turbo can handle. is this 300 your throwing out there WHP or BHP...because your way wrong if your saying BHP. In the end it comes down to someone modding the hell out of it and proving what it can take.

Hey all,

Question for [email protected]

The GT30 kit is available now but there are no up/down pipes avail at this time for it's use...?(am I correct)? Where would one find the appropriate pipes needed for it's (GT30) use?...any ideas.

Turboxs tuned it themselves for best results, so it is not adjustable. It sounds great,I haven't had the radio on since :)
