New Ver.2 Hks Bov

Sorry for this queston but I looked everywhere for the answer but couldn't find it. I was wondering if anyone has the new hks bov. Has anyone had any problems like the old version? Any back fireing, bad ildeling, stalling? The new version comes with a recir kit? I'm buying em-cobb and catted either helix, invidia, turbo xs down pipe in about 1-2 months depending on how my saving goes. But I really want the bov and I have money for it. Let me know your inputs thanks!

I dont know about that particular one. But it seems most that have BOV actually are running a BPV (By Pass Valve) one with a recirc kit to it. But you will not get any power gains out of it. Best bet honestly is to get EM first, that will actually give you more power for the car.

I know em will give them most power but I also dont really have the money. I just bought the hks cbe for 495.00. so another 700 will hurt me. That's why i wont the bov cause i have the money for it. after that ill save for a while.

I have the tein sway bar. Easy to install just make sure you are on a flat surface. Also there is the aircon clamp on the right hand side of the engine bay that will touch the bar. Remember to bend this clamp so it does not touch cos you will get vibrations through your dash.

That is a strut tower bar... not a sway bar. Sway bars install under your car and connect the lower controll arms togeather with a sway bar link there for applying pressure to keep the weels down and the car from rocking back and forth in a corner. What you have ther is a strut tower bar, which aslo stiffens up the system but not as drastically as the sway bar. But with a good sway bar and strut tower bar you are boxing off the system top and bottom so it will be much stiffer and more responsive.
