That sound you hear is compressor surge,the spring in the BOV is too tight.

My BOV makes that noise when it vents at low PSI.

You're right.

I wasn't gonna share, but after seeing the success of this bov I think I'm going to patent my own "JDM BOV"

Wow that sounds really nice. Almost makes me want to reconsider a VTA blow off valve.

Yeah, I know its totally queer to get off on blow off valve noise, but there's an evo in my apartment complex with one, and it sounds like some star wars **** blowing off at 20+psi. They don't sound that impressive at the rational boost levels we run (and by "we" I mean everyone here but me).
