Is the car running like crap?

Or idles less than perfect?

It idles just below 1000 rpm it does stall sometimes when I push the clutch in and put it in neutral when I'm driving. I do smell alittle bit of fuel. Other mods are it has a sti block, a sti exhaust and a intake that basically it

Here's a mod, put a stock BPV on it and throw that piece in the garbage.
Our cars hate them, and hks is a horrible BOV company. There exhaust are outstanding, but not their bov's

All your symptoms are from the BOV man, please save yourself the heartache before it gets worse.

My buddy had the same symptoms and put a stock bpv on and everything went away. As everyone has already suggested out the stock bpv on.

Nope, only matters if your running, say 22+ psi of boost. At that point you will want a better constructed BPV.
