hey, the hks sounds better in my opinion. it all depends on which sound you like better? hks is more of a whistle while blitz is more or a wooshing sound. i would recirculate though, otherwise you might have idling problems.

hehe that was my thread :D

Anyway to answer 1 question, by opinion though, the HKS IMO is a superior BOV to the Blitz due to the design and push vs pull topics. The HKS can also be rerouted back into the intake, but I dont believe that is so with the blitz (please correct me if i'm wrong)

I would build an entire car out of either companies parts, but IMO for this question the HKS is the one I would buy over the Blitz.

Sti_Thunder, i want to debadge my trunk too, leaving only the STi logo, did you use the dental floss method? What did you use to get rid of the gum left over?

I have the greddy type-s bov and it makes a click like the wrc cars then a high pitch whistle.It might just be me but I think that the turbo spools quicker because of it.

I debadged my car in my garage at 19F ... :D ... Used a 1875W hair dryer to heat up each individual letter ... slowly and easily .. one at a time .... I didn't use dental floss ... I used string ... the one you use to tie up roast beef? :)

For the gum left over it rolled each letter by hand, using my fingertips, again, heating each leftover gum with the hair dryer. Didn't have Goo-Gone at that time, but that's what most use. I applied a couple of carnauba wax coats, and it was perfect, no scratches. Took about 45 minutes to complete.
