^^^Another BS flag has been raised by me. A BOV doesn't prolong the life of your turbo. The stock bypass valve does just fine, if not better than the aftermarket ones, that is up to about 21 psi. Preventing turbo lag, that is BS as well. Turbo lag is just the time it takes for the exhaust to flow fast enough through the turbo to spool up the intake side of the turbo. Stops backpressure? I think not. Yeah a BOV will prevent the turbo from spinning backwards, but the stock bypass valve again does as good of a job if not better than an aftermarket, up to about 21 psi. It doesn't keep you at a higher boost either, and the level of boost has no relation to lag. I might have said a few things wrong but basically the only thing you said right in your post was they make a cool noise and it doesn't make you go faster. Please know what you are talking about before trying to give advice.

I concur.

And that website means what to me? Are you trying to tell me that they told you all that information about a BOV? For some reason I can't believe that because they are one of the most respected UTEC tuners in the USA and they wouldn't feed bullshit information to somebody like that.

First off, it probably not good to mouth off to a moderator. And more importantly, you may be able to get away with that attitude on NASIOC, but we more mature about it here. We don't appreciate that kind of nonsense in this community. No point of getting all angry and defensive about a post. We're all WRX enthusists here.

(FOR ALL U NOBBIES) and prevents what some call turbo lag! IF U WANT TO BE ALL TECHINCAL! no oviously it dont make u go faster but again makes the turbo last longer and keeps u at a higher boost instead of getting more lag!

You're sort of right, but not really. What both a bypass valve and a blow off valve do is relieve pressure in the intake, which prevents the air from backing up on the turbo. That air slows it down, but doesn't make it spin backwards. A bypass valve prevents the turbo from slowing down by venting the air back into the intake before the turbo, which keeps the compressor wheel spinning. A blow off valve vents the pressure to the atmosphere.

Both do the same thing, just go about it in different ways. Neither is more beneficial than the other one.

Chad and Matt, you guys take way too much shit from some people. I can understand that you guys want to be cool and all, but stand up for yourselves. Time to break out the heavy 12's and start booting.

I guess that's why I can't be a mod. If people can't play nice, they gotta go.

As for the original question, Tial bov's are the best, period. I'm pretty positive that there aren't any "kits" for the WRX, but you can always have a flange welded for one.

My car is well, it's like 10 lbs of shit in a 5 lb bag...

<------ Click to see what I'm workin' with. ;)
