Default BOV recommendations

So I am ordering my intercooler kit today. Going with the ebay unit that most have suggested, but it does not come with a BOV. Can I stick with the stock Bosch unit that came with my Vortech kit or should I upgrade? Cx racing has a BOV kit that I think I can intergrate with the kit I am buying, but was not sure if they were any good or not. The mondo units are very expensive and I have really gone way over my budget on this thing. Any advise would be great!

I have the procharger red race BOV. Its super loud, but its pretty funny seeing people having no idea what the noise coming from your car is. Get that!

Personally i've heard alot of good things about the procharger valve. Just look at 90% of the turbo or blower cars in the nmra.

I run what fred is, the vortech mini race, they will support plenty, he is at 540rwhp and with my new build I'm expecting to be in the 600rwhp range.

Glad you guys like my car/BOV. Obviously I prefer the Tial BOV but the ones others have suggest also work just fine.
