    Yes it has been asked about a hundred times or more,but for the record.....

    Forge's valve is about the best aftermarket one,but if you're buying one for sound,forget it,as this isn't what it's aimed at.

    You can buy an atmospheric spacer for it,which will bleed a little air and make a hissing sound for you,but the purpose of the uprated DV is to allow you to run higher levels of boost without the OEM valve problem of leaks at higher pressures.
