What's the advantage of a charge pipe with BOV (besides the sound) compared to one for OEM diverter valves?

Nothing except personal preference in the BOV woosh.

I would recommend upgrading the stock DV's to Forge DV's as the stock plastic DVs will fail eventually. .

Pretty much you recommend most of us to change stock to new charge pipe and stock DV to Forge DV?

Any links to the products?
