I would...I read your other post and was gonna tell you that. Wouldn't do the uppipe either...no need for it. As for the rest of your part list, its ok but it seems you are spending a lot of money on parts that you could get better and cheaper elsewhere.( other than the dealership)

The only reason I'm doing dealership is because it gets added to the financing of the car and I get supplier discount Subaru VIP ftw!

You do get a sound from doing just an intake, at least on my 07 I did. Then I added a BOV/BPV and it was increased even more. Its a drivers preference. If I were to do it all over again, probably wouldnt have gone past stage 2 as there are days I cant stand all the sounds my car makes.

Is the stock STI BOV better than my WRX one? I am running 19 psi and worried about it leaking.

I am running a Go Fast Bits fully adjustable on my 02 Wrx I have it set to full atmospheric dump and I also have not had any side effects, it runs the same as it did with the stock Bov.

I will be going to the dyno in a couple weeks and will have the tuner check if there is a huge difference with a full recirc and so on to full atmospheric dump, I am well aware that as the intake is a maf setup the metered air is being dumped thus causing a rich state, but how long is it really running rich to cause damage?

GFB is not a super over produced product like the HKS ssqv or the Turboxs RFL, although when I was running my rfl at first, it was closer to normal than when it was on there for a bit. but Than when I finally went back to the stock bpv....night and day.
Not saying that you cant have a good brand/well designed one and be fine, because you can. But I also guarantee that if you guys ran them full recirc. than long term, you would enjoy them more.

I absolutely agree with you, because there is a definite rich state that occurs and over time that could be harmful, but for now I fully enjoy the sound of rice (which is what I think most that oppose the sound in the first place would call it even though rice is cosmetic) but I like the sound personally, and like I said I will check on the dyno if there is a huge difference in power at full recirc to full vent.

Come onnnn you know you love that sound, if it weren't for the cavaliers trying to race you you would have it too. But honestly I don't see myself going below 50/50. I have never street raced either and do not plan to, I laugh more at the people who try to race me that is true RICE right there too immature to understand why you build a car in the first place. For me I just simply enjoy the look and sound of the Subaru and when I race it on the track its so I know when I laugh at that kid who wants to race me on the street it's because I probably know more about their car than they do and my numbers from the track can back up my skill on a street without having to race someone over my Bov.

But to stay on track with the thread I 1000% agree that a stock Bov is well capable of handling stock boost pressures and is better off being recirculated back into the intake due to the maf. If you can find a good Bov that will handle your future mods and more boost or just want to make sure that old 100k+ miles stock Bov isn't going to leak when you up the boost I say have something fully adjustable as you can always go back to full recirc with the turn of a knob if you have problems.
