Change to a Forge recirc or atmo valve and it'll be quieter than Darth Vader rasping under your hood.

How exactly would those be quieter? Won't have a Darth Vader sound, but their louder then the stock bpv.

Well... I've had all three.. so I think I'd know. I've always found the stock valve with the AEM intake is much louder than with either my Forge atmo or recirc valves.

You would have to be driving through some pretty big puddles to hydro lock your engine!!
