It is part of your stock intake. Find your stock airbox. It will be on there.

It's not very loud at all. Of course, it is recirculating, and none of them are very loud.

Hey Cosmo, I know this have been discussed time and again before but, what's the difference between the recirculating and non recirculating BOVs? which one should be best for a wrx that is not going to be raced? I'm not planning on raising the boost, just protecting the turbo, will a BOV serve that purpose? what else should I need?

A recuirculating BOV sends the boost presure back into the air intake, where the regular BOV vents into the air, giving it that swooosh sound. The recurculating BOV is better because that is what the car is set up for, some people say they get back fire from the regualr BOV or it will run funny. The BOV might fall under the "bling" factor because it just sounds cool and if you are not going to be raising your boost it wont really help protect your turbo

You don't need a BOV to protect your turbo unless your boosting about 20 psi.

????????????
yes you do.prevents compressor surge.psi has no effect on what psi a bov works for.a huge turbo only running 8psi would need one just as bad as a vf22 running 21psi.

I'm talking about the stock one works just as good as any aftermarket up to 20 psi.

A turbo timer is like added insurance, you don't have to do it, but it also doesn't hurt to have one. I actually just put one on my car, you could probably put the money towards something else for now
