    Dude if you didn't already notice that under the hood of your car, I really don't know what to say.

    Being new this forum and not knowing much about aftermarket parts, tuning etc. is one thing...but not knowing what's in plain sight under the hood of your own car is something else entirely.

    Hey, while we're on the topic, did anyone catch the article in the latest SCC mag (June) comparing all the different BOV's, including the OEM parts, and they noted that ours is identical to the one used by Mitsu on 1G DSM turbos, with some minor differences in the fittings? They said that a common DSM mod is to crush the top of the cap assembly to allow higher boost pressure to build, and were implying that this should be a big deal in the WRX modding community, but isn't.

    Anyone know anything about it?

    I read that article as well, the reason for crushing the top is to increase the spring preload on the valve. I guess the theory is that the valve stays sealed at higher pressures. The article also mentioned that DSM specialties sold "pre-crushed" units, which seems alot safer than ball peening your BOV. It would be cool if some of the guys on the forum who have aftermarket BOV's tried this trick out with their old stocker to see if it works.

    mcguirk,

    are you willing to crush yours since you have an extra one? j/k

    Was there anything wrong with your original one?
