    I thought these plumbacks shouldn't give out any flutter sounds because the air is being recirculated back into the intake instead of the turbo?

      I've got one and I do get a bit of 'Hektik dose' with a K&N panel filter Didn't notice any dose with the Ralliart filter panel or the stock filter.

        Wouldn't the MR BOV and TS Kompact not affect the noise anyway? Since their both plumbback and all your hearing is from the airbox?

        Or does it sound different because of the spring and type of bov it is. MR (Diagraphm bov)? TS (piston)? or something.

            Maybe the bov is installed backwards, hence the loud flutter??

                The tututu flutter is alot more noticeable with a pod.
                Almost sounds like its venting from a bov.
                The Mr didnt make any sound.

                  Yeah i know the pod is louder. Was just wondering if there is any sound difference created from having the TS vs MR BOV is what i meant.

                        Mine does the same.. Think its actually coming from the airbox, the k&n filter wud have something to do about it..

                          Well the 'chooo' sound isn't as loud as a proper vent-to-air bov would be.....but it is definately audible. I have a spare OEM panel filter at home....will try putting it on this weekend to see how much of a difference the type of filter (K&N vs OEM) contributes to the sound.

                            It's the K&N filter that makes it more audible.

                                do you need a flash after this is installed to prevent any CELs? or can you just plug in and play? My Car is stock atm apart from the k&n filter
