Most are using THe HKS super sequential or the Forge BOV's ... But are getting more turbo log as they are expelling the boost ...I believe the HKSSS is non adjustable..at least for the new models. The reason for the turbo lag, engine hesitation, stuttering, any of those symptoms is due to venting metered air that the car is expecting back into the intake tract. My suggestion is research on the recirculation kit for the HKS bov's to send that air back into the intake tract as per stock specs so the maf doen't go nuts. You will still get quicker response after a shift + nice sound as well.
