It doesn't require a tune because the problems it will create can not be tuned for.

Generally speaking its going to cause problems like rough idling and stalling. But you might get lucky. My friend had the same BOV and had absolutely no issues.

Your Perrin unit must be on the Stock I/C. If you upgrade your intercooler to a bigger one ditch that POS Perrin and start looking for something like the CObb XLE, TurboSmart or GFB hybrid.

Thats too funny! I put my GFB hybrid on full vent for the hell of it once and my car barely stayed running, I cant imagine having a full vent all the time and knowing you wasted money on something you cant switch back to recirc.
Tempted to put my Hybrid back on. But not sure if it will affect AP. Will it?

I run my AP with my custom 20G map with my "new" Cobb CLE BPV on 50/50. I say new cause I was tuned with the Perrin recirc one. I have ran the Cobb VTA, full recirc and 50/50, and in none of them did I notice a difference in EGT, or A/F ratios (I ahve AEM gauges to monitor those). I think its partly due to the quality of the part also.

You can switch out the output end on a HKS and make them recirculate.

I got a steal on it so Ill actually get more from it if I were to put it on EBAY or NASIOC..

but yes for the time being.....waste of money, nuthin better than smelling gas and stalling out every 5 seconds...lol
