    The sounds plate simply vents the pressure from the turbo and discharges it into the air to create a sound instead of recirculating that pressure (no sound).

    I guess you could say it makes the car sound and look faster

    PAUL, any sound samples?

    Do our small turbos have enough pressure to make it sound like these cars?



    Around 1:14 when they all start to take off from the camera car, is that the turbo spooling?

    That's the turbo spooling, you can hear the turbo spoiling better with an intake but I'm assuming those cars have upgraded turbos so you'd for sure hear them more.
    I'll see if I can find some samples on a Forte

    Our turbos make 18 psi at peak. That is enough to make nice noise. If you get FMIC which has larger capacity, it will be even more noise, as it will be longer.

    However, the noise you get from the video, as Paul said, is more from spooling than BOV.
    BOV only acts when you release gas and the pressure is vented. 15 psi will make nice whistle with proper BOV and sound plates.

    To get the spool sound - intake, downpipe, and larger turbo. Those are items that will make spool whine louder.


    Removing the snorkel, adding drop in K&N will make spool louder.

    Exactly! I forgot to mention a large DP from the turbo will increase turbo noise (spoiling) as well.

    I had issues installing the plate on a Kia Forte Koup 2016 SX, there is not room to install it between the Radiator frame and the original valve.... waste of money.

    There is enough room, although it is a tight fit. 100s of customers have installed it before with no problem. I would suggest taking it to a professional to install if you're having trouble.

    This installs directly without modification unlike many other larger BOVs out there.

    Available in 5 different colors to match your engine bay color scheme! (Black, Blue, Red, Purple, Silver)

    BOV sound can be found in the video here of a 1.6T Optima, best sound clips found at 00:41 & 00:48
