not too many people are happy with the forge splitter. its not that loud. i have the forge 007 DV and it is loud with a CAI. sounds much better than the quick chirp of a BOV. plus it comes with the springs so you can tune it for your boost.
here is a video of my gti with the forge 007 DV

i went with the apr R1 since it requires no maintenance or cleaning.. i think the forge dv requires replacements of some inside parts every 2 years or something.. dont quote me on that but yea i like r1 does its job perfectly

the forge does not need replacement parts. it just needs to be cleaned. i clean mine every oil change. it takes 5 min. to do. remove it from the engine bay. unscrew the top, remove the piston diaphram, clean piston and DV housing with clean rag, regrease and reassemble, then install. i might just make a DIY on how to do this.
