I've had some fluttering which was caused by the BOV rapidly moving up and down. At first I had thought an exhaust leak was the culprit, but it turns out that the Valve was extremely dirty. This caused the Brass valve to rub on the metal surrounding BOV. After cleaning the inside of the BOV and lightly lubing it, it works without a problem. So my message to all of you with this BOV, make sure you clean it every few months and check to see if there are any deep scratches.

If you even get a hint of fluttering, first check for boost leaks and then work on the BOV. My BOV had some deep scratches so I was a little concerned.

That is the case with all the BOV's...I needed to do that with my Type S also....it was making a "weak" sound...so i checked all fittings and just took it apart and cleaned it....now it works great...

I know that my turbo or BOV has a slight sound of compressor surge right before the Blow off. Sounds kinda weird.
