I was reading up on the godzilla blow off valve since i'm giong to be buying a new one since i only have this dinky littl thing right now. I was told by a friend that the turbonetics godzilla BOV is the best on the market. I did some reasearching and its apparently quite good, anybody know how good it is? how good does it sound?

Ive also heard that its "the best", but i dont know...I think the HKS racing BOV is the best, but i hear the godzilla is closely compared to that. I dont either is ideal for anyone pushing less than 25psi. I do know people using the HKS racing bov, and the Type R greddy on high boost cars 25psi+, but noone using the turbonetics.

Never heard it before. But a guy in town has one hes putting on his sr and dam that sucker is huge think of the HKS SSQV and times it by like 2.5. Its dam expensive. I think it goes for like 700+CDN.

Well if its that good, or seems that good I think i'll give it a try. I was going to spend a lot of money for an HKS BOV but there is a shop in town selling the godzilla BOV with the discharge horn for only $325. I saw how big it was, rather intimidating. Well I should have my SR running within the week so i'll be sure to post a sound file of how it sounds.

doesn't Turbonetics make the godzilla? It's been around for quite awhile now. I believe it's supposed to be the loudest BOV on the market cause of the trumpet design. If it's the same one, then the quality should be as good as the rest of the top tuner ones...HKS, GReddy, Blitz...etc.

Anyone have a good collection of sound files or vids of various BOVs? Specificly the blitz super sound.
