Go with the blow-off, the looks you get from people are great!

Blow-off valves do sound good and the looks from people are probably nice but doing this will harm your performace. When you blow off a certain amount of air that has already been metered by the MAf the enigine will run rich and cause missfires due to the fact that a predetermined amount of fuel will still be delivered for this blown off air. Thus causing a mixture with too much fuel and not enough air. This is something you might want to take into consideration before making your final desicion on this but if you do stay with a diverter then go with either a TT 225 DV or a good piston type of any reputable brand. -Patrick Ashby

The GFB hybrid adjustable BOV sounds great. I have also heard good things about the HKS and I think it is a litlle cheaper than the GFB.
