Simple TXS BOV question. Your probably gonna hate me for asking.

OK, So i bought a TXS RFL BOV. First off i know it was a dumb purchase but i love the sound but anyways. I noticed my I'm reading more vacuum. is that a problem? 2 I put 2 washers in because 1 washer wasn't shutting the valve fast enough so it was stuttering but i notice if i rev past say 4 or 5k it doesn't really make any noise sometimes it flutters.. should i add another washer? any help would be appreciated thanks..

I think my friend had one of those on his WRX and he put in all of the washers that came with the kit. Try that maybe?

Putting in more washers stiffens the spring. This meaning, the more boost you run the more washers needed. I believe I ran one washer when I had my RFL and it was on stock boost. Most people run 2 on stock boost levels without any problems. Honestly, it's just going to take some trial and error to get it right.

I don't know if there is a difference with the springs, but when I had mine I ran no washers for the best sound.
