Welcome and congrats on your new purchase! I have no idea about your background with tubo'd cars, so forgive me if you already know the following -
It is not out of the ordinary for the seat of the pants boost feel to be inconsistent. The feel is influenced by not only rpms and resulting boost pressure, but also vehicle speed and gearing. There are a few sweet spots for that nice strong kick that pushes you back in the seat. However, there are also spots where you will be making a bunch of power and just not feel it as strong due to the above. At least, that's what I have noticed.
Have you found the legacygt.com resource yet? Go over there and check it out, lots of additional information in the technical forum section for turbo powertrains. Do a bunch of research before dropping the the cash on a BOV. For about the same amount of money as the one you referenced, you could get a light aftermarket tune that will probably give a much greater performance increase over a BOV.
