Aps bov
 
Ok so I've looked around and I cannot seem to find a good solution to this. I just got a 08 WRX. Anyways I got an APS BOV and it turns out it has the more triangular flange off the older WRX's and from some research I've done the 08+ intercooler. I'm looking into having a new flange machined, but I was trying to figure out how difficult it would be if I found a good price on a stock STI TMIC and replaced mine with that. Any help would be appreciated.

Well what was wrong with the stock BPV?

BLAZE2099 11-21-2012 07:37 PM

It didn't go psssshhhhh! Duh

You can also buy a new flange on eBay for your noise maker. There like five bucks.

psinuse 11-22-2012 04:19 PM

Now we don't know that he is doing it for the noise...He may actually need one.

I'm just getting ahead of the curve as I'm looking at a full turbo back exhaust intake, and vf52, with boost up to about 20+ PSI so this is a good hybrid for all options. Its not a 50/50 but a true hybrid that still recirculates for keeping the turbo spooling while releasing exess with a nice sound.

psinuse 12-05-2012 06:22 PM

Doesn't the 08 come with a vf52 turbo? You really don't need a BOV for what your going to be doing.

jmiah007 12-06-2012 11:34 AM

No the 08's have a different turbo that falls on it's face over 5K, the VF will pull stronger to 6.5K. I know I don't "need" it but I do like sound, without messing with tuning for a full atmospheric BOV.

psinuse 12-06-2012 01:58 PM

Almost every WRX turbo falls on it's face around that rpm. Don't think it was the TDO4 I wanna say it was a vf48 or something. I don't understand the whole "sound" thing. I'm running a stock BPV with a 20g and a build motor, but to each his own I suppose.

I'd rather do whatever is better for the car, rather than what sound you like... just my .2

BLAZE2099 12-06-2012 05:37 PM

Told ya so!

Thanks I couldn't remember when they did the switch for the stock WRX turbos.

I would add the with a vf52 turbo you can get some pretty solid numbers out of it...run 11's with the right setup and tune.:beatentod

If you want to run an STI tmic, you need the TMIC, STI layout turbo, sti intake manifold, sti throttle body.

All in you're north of $1,000. Get a new valve.

FYI, the bpv on your car now is the exact same one the 09's come with and there are literally thousands of 09+ guys running that boost level on their OEM valves. I ran mine at 21 with no issues.
