Need BOV recommendations fast please

im sure there's threads about this but in a hurry. I have a 2009 Subaru WRX. I have a atmospheric bov right now just cause i wanted the sound. Im over that and wondering what the best recirculating or 50/50 bov there is for the 09 wrx. Ive done some research for the 09 and the only one i see that look decent is the Perrin. who has other suggestions. links would be great to because im ordering one tonight. Thanks in advance

Don't know if they make one for the '09, but I liked my Go fast bits hybrid (50/50)

I run a stealth, it's pretty and has an adjustable dial for anywhere from 100% recirc to 100% atmospheric. I like it.

COBB XLE ($$$): CobbTuning.com - XLE BPV

Turbosmart (even more $$$$)

TurboXS (half the $$)

Perrins isnt that great at all. I ran it and had several issues with it. I now run the Cobb XLE and its far superior to the Perrin unit. Also look at the Turbosmart hybrid. Those are the two that were recommended to me by tuner and shop.

The Cobb XLE BOV is incredibly hard to get apprantly. I'm still waiting for it and only half the back orders were filled last time they sent out orders.

To Kirt and anyone else waiting for the Cobb BOV, not just becuase Im a Cobb whore, but becuase its a great piece, the wait is worth it. ( I only had to wait 3 days tho) Check out Surgeling Tuning, contact them there (Nick) might have some in stock there. They tend to horde stuff if they can.

I called them and he said everyone is behind and the back orders where only half filled with the last shipment. You got lucky josh...before the item became hot order.
