    Car went back to Rallispec Thursday to get the oil leak checked out. No word on that yet. I'm planning on heading up to EFI on Wednesday to get a proper break in tune from Mikey. Car is running a tad bit lean. Rather be safe then sorry.

    Nice. Can't go wrong with AEM gauges. I have my own boost gauge to throw in sometime soon when I decide to stop being lazy.

    Got the car back today. We changed the the camshaft sprocket and camshaft seal for it and so far soo good no smoke. However, I am smelling a bit of coolant. I'm thinking from when the rad had to come off for him to fix the leak. Car is smoking like a normal catless setup, just seems like fuel burning. Keeping a good eye on it.

    Tomorrow I'm heading the The Shop CT for a break in tune from STiMikey. Gotta make sure everything is good and ready for the official tune.

    Killer STI you have!

    I dont really understand this, can you explain it?

    My shop recommended the stock RBV because of something about it not tuning properly with MAF readings. Im guessing that with a real BOV it lets all of the air pressure out and causes a lean/rich condition. I really dont want to keep the stock RBV because I am pushing 400whp and dont want the stock RBV plastic valve to fail.

    Idk what stock bpv you are using but I've never seen anyone keep a stock bpv while making 400whp. You need to get a better explanation from your tuner and shop as to why they recommend stock BPV.

    How much boost are you running, the stock recircs are good till about 20-21psi.
