Does anyone know if I can keep my stock intake and use a BOV to get the swosh noise?

Yes, that's exactly how my car is set up.
Sorry to thread jack, but I have a question pertaining to the age old BOV vs. Diverter valve debate. Are we depriving our engines of much needed air by releasing it into the engine bay with a BOV instead of recycling it back into the intake with diverter valves? I'm not sure if it's just in my head, but i'm definitely a lot more aware of turbo lag post install. I upgraded my charge pipe/BOV, intercooler, downpipes, and started running stage 2 Procede maps all at the same time, so I'm not sure what's causing the issue, but when i'm driving hard and shifting aggressively, i can feel a dip in power in between shifts when i get on the gas. I know manual's don't hold boost between shifts, but i never noticed this before. Is it just because I'm making more power that i notice when my car is out of boost? I'll post logs if you guys tell me what i'm experiencing isn't normal...
