BOV Installed - ?'s

Hey everyone. I have a 04 wrx with uppipe. Just got an HKS ssqv bov installed. I love it. no issues shifting or anything but i do notice when i start car the rpms shoot up and drop down to almost stalling before going normal. Also when im @ a stop @ a light or something the idle funks around. Last of all if i have the AC on i get this shuttering from the engine. Any ideas?? Do i need to adjust my BOV?

That stuff sounds normal for the WRX engine. Mine does the same thing when I start the car, like shoot up to 3k then down to almost stall then its good. Did you plug the recirc hose?

Mine goes up to about 2k rpm at start up but it drops to 1.5k, instead of almost stalling though.

Just curious, Isn't it easier to just type "a-t" than "shift-2"

Sounds like you may have an air leak somewhere...
