im pretty sure forge dv's dont make a blow off sound (at least not with an intake)..but i recenty replaced my stock bpv with the forge..and just put in a KN filter yesterday..when i let off the throttle under moderate-hard acceleration i hear a kind of psh sound..not too noticable..but def. can hear it. could this be a boost leak? or do dv's make some kind of distinctive sound..

With an intake and aftermarket DV you will hear that. My GTI sounds like it is sneezing with the EVOM DV.

It's a cone filter or drop in? It's normal

drop in filter, when i took out my stock one i was almost horrified how thick that thing was..

It's more noticeable with a cone, but everyone seems to want that sorta BOV sound
