Totally rad, I have the fully adjustable one that can be full atmosphere or full recirc, or anywhere inbetween. No issues, lots of compliments, great quality.

Anyone with an 08+ have any tips on this BOV? Also would it be a good idea to have a boost gauge? Will it be tough to get it adjusted right?

And yes, if you start modding your car.... get a gauge.

I'm in the market for a new one since I'm running a rfl which makes my car run like poop, I'll have to start hunting several options since this one has quite the mixed feelings.... We will just have to wait and see..now won't we?

I personally run the Cobb unit, love it. I have also known people to really like the TurboSmart version. But in that same respect, I know some that had the TurboSmart version, then switched to the Cobb one, and they are happier with the it.

I run this amazing BOV on my car. The ECU loves it and it sounds perfect. It handles way more boost than my car makes. They call it "stock". You should check it out.

Mine does the same exact thing yours does, but its the Cobb XLE BPV. A/F ratios in both full recric and 50/50 are dang near spot on, no driving issues with either, Granted my car is more modified, maybe I could have ran the stock, maybe not. It was in my budget when I upgraded and I couldnt be more happy. Especially now that its recirculated again.

Mosc, your too funny at times. I like the stocker but was also looking at cobbs because of all the positive feedback on it. And the Cobb will basically be paid for once I sell my rfl and ssqv.
