New here, new to VW..

Picking up my 01 manual Jetta Monday. Super excited, it'll be my 2nd car. 1st was a Dodge ram 2500. Gas Guzzla!

Anyways, I got about $1200 I can work with for mods... I'm thinkin' chip, intake, turbo back.

I have a quick question.. I was shopping for BOVs because that's going to be one of the first things I want to put on, however, been searching around and a lot of people are saying BOVs are no good for 1.8ts.. So I am doing a bit of shopping for DVs now. Only thing is, I heard DVs arn't as loud as BOVs. This is a problem, I want my compression blow off/charge-air or whatever you call it to be loud... But I also don't want to cause any problems to the turbo... Or anything else for that matter.

I found this BOV/DV from Forge... I don't know anything about it, so I was wondering if someone could tell me if this is a good idea.

Now it's ok if you want me to search and find out but it'd be cool if someone could explain real quick BOV vs. DV.

Also, if that bov/dv from forge isn't the best can someone show me to the best or "LOADEST, SAFEST" Diverter Valve out there. Again, I have $1200 bills I can work with, so I could put a good bit down to the DV.

Don't know much about cars or VW, and super excited to join you guys on the road. Sorry if this is in the wrong thread or if there's hundreds of these threads (i tried searching).

cant wait to hear from you,

BOV isnt a great idea. you might get a Check Engine Light. if you want a loud pssh get an intake and a forge 007. The forge splitter is good too but it ddepends on the % you re circulate and the % you dont
