Yes , 007P is THE most popular
But Forge also do the SplitR valve
That is part recirc part atmosheric

As has been said , the valve is recirc as standard , so if you fully dump in to the atmsphere , then you can get issues

Hope that helps?

so forge is the way forward right?

i deffinetly want the sound... but dont wanna ruin the turbo.

so its ok to by a blow off valve ?
I dont think these engines take well to the blow off valves mate heard of a few management lights come on if i were you id go for the Forge 007P and open cone filter it does make a nice noise aswell and nobody has had problems with them.

Yea I'd go for forge 007p or the split r wouldn't get a bailey or anything like tha coz the ecu requires the recirculation an might throw a code

No point getting the Split-R its a waste of money in my opinion.
My 007P and a cone filter (Which you will undoubtably get) is so loud I cant see the need for a split-r.

When I say loud if I turn my stereo (Standard alana) to 27 I can still hear it dumping air.
