    I've had a bov in forever and have had 0 ill effects... <shrug> I also have a CAI and my car hasn't exploded yet or sucked up a small cat through the intake....

    Thanks!!!

    I've just heard about 1000 horror stories of cheap BOVs causing backfiring, poor idle, stalling, etc.

    But I could never actually "personally" provide my experiences.

    But, I figured, to find out for myself, I bought what I believe is one of the best, most reliable BOVs out there... just to see.

    Turns out.. GFB makes a great product... no adverse effects at all. And I was surprised, there is actually a small performance gain. Very small, but at least I can say I didn't buy it "only" for the sound--LOL

    My God... I'm officially a ricer now.. ugg

    A f-ing 31 year old ricer--LOL

    Next thing you know.... I'll have a big aluminum wing--LOL

    Finally..... after almost a YEAR... I FINALLY get to fill the last "hole" in my interior.

    I just bought my Fuel pressure gauge... my 9th (and final) gauge.

    Damn think gues for $190.00 EACH... and thats ebay prices. At parts stores they are well over $200.

    But occasionally, you'll catch one on ebay from an obscure seller that starts out auctions at $1 with no reserve.

    I sniped it, and beat out the top bidder by a whopping 2 cents--LOL

    http://cgi.ebay.com/ebaymotors/ws/eB...8423402&rd=1,1

    For $110, I'm happy. More to follow when it arrives.

    That pretty much completes the entire autometer C2 series, minus nitrous pressure, tranny temp, and water temp... all of which are useless to me.

    C2 0-100 electric Fuel pressure
    C2 -30 +20 boost
    C2 oil pressure
    C2 A/F ratio (yea.. I know its bling, but I didn't know that when I bought it)
    C2 DPSS stage 2 digital tach/shift lite
    C2 0-2000 degree pyrometer
    C2 0-18 voltmeter
    SPI air temp (for pre I/C temps)
    SPI air temp (for post I/C temps)

    PICS as soon as it goes in!!

    Here she is... the last one.... I'm finally done.... Fuel pressure (bottom of the a-pillar pod) runs about 30 psi at idle, 40 psi under slight acceleration, then climbs to no higher than 60 psi at full boost (18 psi).

    Maybe I should take classes on how to operate a camera properly?? LOL I suck at taking pictures.

    Can you get the hood scoop air flow meter gauged installed? I'd like to know the CFM of the scoop....


    On a serious note as long as they are hooked up I guess they are cool. Atleast you know what's going on.

    Just thought I'd chime in.... My family and I moved to Utah, although I'm still here in St. Louis dealing with child custody crap.

    Nevertheless... I took a drive up in the mountains, 25 miles of dirt road, single-car wide, and no guard rails... scared the ever-loving B-Jesus out of me, even though the majority of the time I was doing a whopping 8 mph--LOL

    Folks in Utah might even be familiar with "Farmington Canyon Rd"... Yikes!!

    Well, with the CRAPPY-ASS air up here in Utah (6000 ft elevation), and the availability of only 91 Octane gas, I finally broke down and bought an intake, with the HOPES that maybe I'll squeeze a few more HP out when I get this thing over to Cobb to dynotune it.

    Its a nice upgrade, I do definately feel a difference, and I DEFINATELY hear the difference.... Damn car is making all kinds of "sucking" noises that I never heard before--LOL

    I'll post numbers again after Cobb gets their hands on it.

    Couple pics:
