What do you mean best? Its a personal preference on what type of sound you want out of it. Go find BOV sounds online and listen to them and decide what to get from there. I run an RFL and I love it... If I was to get a different one I would probably go with a SSQ.

Berz out.

Tial or forge is probably the best. Don't be a ricer, if you are only going for the sounds.

They all do the same thing so why not choose a sound you don't mind hearing all day? If your pushing major horsepower then of course get a racing BOV but if your just running around with low hp they will all do the same thing for you.

stock 1G DSM for best value. Greddy Type-R(rs) for all around good value and performance. SSQ for puresex sounds.

Some BOVs have different reaction times compared to others. The spring rate inside them vary from BOV to BOV. Then again, it's such a minute detail, nobody really cares until you're into serious drag racing or something where every little bit counts.

Ive had DSM 1g, Turboxs RFL, and TiAl 50mm, for sound i liked the turboxs(at first, it got a little too annoying) for quality/sound id go TiAl 50mm for sure.

no one mentioned blitz - blitz DD is for the subtle you who don't wanna hear a thing at low throttle lift offs and really natural sound of psssssssssh when you put the hammer down....

that's why it's called Dual Drive.

Thats also because other BOVs haven't changed anything recently
Other than HKS though.
