    Modest 02 bugeye build

    Finally got a Subaru after many years of wanting one. In December of 2011 I had 10,000 dollars to spend on a car of my choice so for 8500 I picked up my Stock 02 WRX with 122,000 miles on it.

    Giving the Engine bay a rest I attacked the Driveline and suspension next.
    First Added Kartboy front and rear Shifter Bushings. I was hooked.
    Next I replaced the transmission Mount with the Group N Mount and TIC crossmember Bushings
    Next i added Group N Pitch Stop Mount (Its crap and i will be swapping it for something beefier)

    No it's because it's the wrong thing for our cars. BPV is the way to go

    Thats what just happened to me. I had an external head gasket leak. so i went ahead and replaced head gaskets, valve cover gaskets, rocker gaskets, 4 new spark plugs, and the power steering rack and pinion boots. cost me 2000 bucks!

    Mikie, not sure if you know the answer to this, but if the BPV is more effective then the BOV (i've read all the threads, the summary I understand is, the BPV re-uses the pressure and has it available for the engine quicker, and the BOV gets rid of it, causing the turbo to have to create more) Basically my question is, in what situation is the BOV better then the BPV? i was thinking the BPV would be better no matter what situation. But I guess maybe like a quick spooling turbo, it doesn't matter? I'm lost, please explain if you know.
