What's the best bpv?

Hello there I got a 2010 Wrx got a turbo back from perrin and a cobb v3 stage 2 tune next upgrades will be a Cobb short ram intake heard great things about it. but i'm debating on BPV's i'm thinking either a Forge BPV or The Go Fast Bits Hybrid I really want the GFB but I don't know if it will cause me any issues? Will it bolt to the stock TMIC?

For the price and quality you can't beat the forge bpv. Make sure whatever one you get it is a recirculating bpv. Yes the forge will bolt on the stock IC

P.S. I'd recommend getting the aem intake.

Is the AEM short ram better? and i know the GFB is a hybrid is it safe to run partially atmospheric? like 10% i've read around and heard that it wont cause backfiring or any other issues. i just want to make sure i'm not going to be hurting anything.

You asked a question and I wish to answer you in the form of a question. What is wrong with the stock BPV?

I have a Cobb XLE bpv on my 07 WRX set to full recirc. It works and sounds about the same as my stock bpv. It was good to go right out of the box, no adjustments necessary.

I probably didn't need it, but it gives me peace of mind.

I'll third Randy's second - why do you want an aftermarket bpv?

I'll end up buying a Cobb XLE premature only because I know I'll be rotated in the next say two years. I'd rather a well built BPV than to push the limits of my plastic stocker.

I've ran HKS SSQV V3- sucked and leaked and a poor decision for my car
Also ran TurboXS RFL- sucked and very hurtful for my car, also leaked.
Also had a TurboSmart- came on my 04 that my wife bought me, too loud, but preformed as it should have. That car was also front mounted and was owned by someone who worked at PSiProformance, a local tuner. So it was more than likely adjusted with its spring the correct way "".
I sold that to a young kid and used the money to get a Cobb XLE which performed exactly as it should have right out of the box.

I'll stand behind Cobb products, they are very well built.

But I will not suggest going aftermarket unless it's due to higher end performance.

Don't want to risk what? Driving recklessly in the rain? Hydrolocking is driver error, not the parts' faults.

I 2nd this as well, I don't think you will be going in such extreme conditions to where water is constantly up and over your wheel or worse over your hood. That is pretty much a myth or driver error

To clarify my point, people who hydrolock are generally going way too fast for given road conditions. If you're forging a river it should be obvious to take it easy and you should know better than to slam full speed into large puddles. Your filter getting water on it won't hydrolock a car, you have to almost submerge the thing.
