BOVs Which do you recommend?

Ok, I might have found a good deal on BOVs and was wondering what your opinions are on them.

Ok, Here are the prices. Apex-i Twin chamber with Supra kit (includes flange and pipe) for $209

HKS SSBOV for $195 and then $35 for the flange. I would need to make a pipe for it.

I know there are a few of you out there with the HKS but do any of you use the apex? Just want to know that your experiences were with them.

Well, I did a little more research and found a good website that has many diferent wave files of different BOVs and some opinions on each. Here is the site:

http://www.alltrac.net/tuning/blowoffvalve.html

From what I have read, the Apex has been known to leak. I dont like the sounds of that. And the sound of it is kinda boring. The HKS one seems to get rave reviews. Evidently it can not leak due to its design. Thats good. The sound is quite a high chirp. Not bad. I just might go with the HKS unit because of their reputation and quality. I will have to give a phone call to see if I can get a lower price.

Sorry guys, but I already bought the HKS. Hell $189 NIB... Im not complaining.

Anyways, thanks for the help. But listen to the BOV sounds. They are pretty cool.
