I'd say the sound plate sounds a lot better after I put the breather there lol, nothing to do with mileage or anything, looks and sound mostly. But it's just a simple mod, appearance wise also.

Sound plate would not have any added gains in power, this is purely sound upgrade. It's def worth it.

But if you want performance, get the Synapse from David or HKS. I prefer synapse.

Updated pics K5OS sound plate, the sound is just addicting!!!
Look great! Thank you for posting pics.

It's because he removed the BOV recirc hose. He plugged up the inlet on the intake. Then added a filter on the BOV, lets it vent to atmos.
Common mod.
Yep!

Right, I think he was asking about if the filter added any power gains or what not. However the sound plate mod in whole does not make any power at all and is purely for sound and aesthetics.

Purchased the BOV sound plate for my 2016 GT - 2.0l Turbo
Thanks to David at K5OS for hooking me up.

It's a straight forward installation, but I opted to add some split washers too as the factory bolts have them.
Very happy with the quality and the sound.

Here are photos of the BOV installed:

Easy install and sounds great thanks for the help K5!
Awesome, glad to hear it. You are very welcome! Thank you again for your business with us.

It definitely does not affect the vehicles "luxurious feel" whatsoever. This is because, you will only hear the sound from the blowoff valve sound plate, when you intentionally give the vehicle gas from pressing the accelerator and then quickly let off. Meaning, you will not hear any sound whatsoever unless you intentionally attempt to create the sound. While driving around regularly, you would never even know that the product was installed, or hear anything at all.
