I run a real Type S. It came on a partial kit I bought so I can't help you there BUT I see them for sale on about half the turbo dealer websites I run across.

My top port is hooked to the vac nipple downstream of the throttle body and the bottom port is hooked to the compressor housing. I would say the volume increases 5-10X when hooking it up like that, at least on my system.

You can hear my Greddy Type-S here:

Wow.

Those of your using the Greddy (or clone) valves- are you running both springs, or only one?

I removed my ailing FM BOV a few months ago and installed one of the knockoff Greddy type valves. I opened it up and removed the smaller spring, and while it is VTA I removed the horn and machined an adapter to put a small K&N filter on the exhaust port.

My goal was to get my valve as quiet as possible and it sounds nothing like the clips y'all have posted. No whistle at all, just a whoosh of air. Sort of like a quiet fart if I had to describe it. I wish I had a portable recorder I could use to take a clip of it...

I really like the forge motorsports one that I got from PAT. The sound is truly amazing and the price is definately right.

if you want quiet, get a begi surge valve to recirculate in front of turbo, i'm goin that way just because its cheap
