I guess it's mostly preference. Some people prefer to hear the turbo spool instead of an open wastegate.

I hear ya there brother! I have a twin setup with twin wastegates and the car is a convertible. They sound like absolute ass. It sounds like a bad exhaust leak, kind of like a broken header. I recirculated mine back in and now the turbos sound fantastic. Why would anyone want to hear an exhaust leak over the turbo?

If you have a twin turbo set up with two bovs vented to the atmosphere, you get a kind of stereo whip crack sort of woosh. Very pleasant but not very stealth.
