bov

I would get the HKS or Blitz bov kits (for the wrx) they don't seem to have any problems and they are great companies

I've heard of probs w/HKS.
Blitz none.
I would go APS or forge. Theyre the best sounding/most reliable in my opinon, and i have heard nothing but good about them.
Im ordering an APS in a couple days, probably. once i get my tax returns.
may try and work a deal w/a vendor..modified GB. email me or pm if interested.

That should be your answer right there. If there is a doubt, then don't do it. Waste of money if you ask me. You pay alot of money just to hear a stupid sound. If you like that sound so much just download it off the internet, burn it to a CD a plop it in your car.

Use it or lose it!

Stick to the stock one. I have a friend who replaced his BOV. Vented it wrong, and now is looking for a new engine. The stock one if fine

It is only called speeding if you get caught!!

my opinion is that maybe not all but certainly my stock BOV sucked, I have DP, UP, K&N, and my BOV leaked precious boost(we cant have that). I now have Blitz BOV and now it holds boost the way it should(builds much faster because it isn't leaking down)
However...I do experience slight stumble when I blow off at idle but no other time, i do believe with some sort of fuel management that this will go away

anyways, good luck with your decision

Helix DP
Gruppe-s UP
Samco IC Hoses
K&N Panel with silencer mod

Blitz BOV
Blitz Turbo Timer

when you say HKS BOV with a WRX kit, what does that mean? I want to get a HKS superSequential BOV, is there different ones? or just one, and the "kit" is just how you install it to a WRX?

The kit has the flange so it bolts right up to your intercooler. The regular one is just the valve, and you're on your own to get it mounted. Spend the extra $30 or so and get the one made for the WRX. Here's mine. By the way, I have had no problems, and it's been on for 3000 miles and counting.

Well, I haven't dynoed it with the intake, but it is noticable. No, it's not like 20 or 30 hp or anything, but it does seem like the turbo spools faster, therefore making it accelerate a little faster. It may just be my imagination, but that's how it seems. Plus it sounds cool...

Actually, the reason I got it was I had a credit at an online shop, so I just figured I'd give it a try. Anyone that's looking for an intake, I would reccomend this one. It installed in about 30 minutes, and was really easy to do. I've been impressed with everything I've seen by Perrin. I have their uppipe and downpipe on order, but I have to wait until I can have my ECU remapped to install them.

I assume it's washable. It appears to be foam, not fabric like the K&N. I'm going to clean it after my next road trip, so I'll let you know then.
