    I had a ton of trouble with that little hose as well when I had my APS BOV. That thing was a pain to get back on, but I eventually got it on with the stock clamp. I am glad you don't have to take that thing off everytime you take off the intercooler, good design Subaru!

    Okay, it's back on with the worm gear clamp...PITA to put on this time, but it helped at least loosening the IC a bit (didn't have to take it all the way off). w00t!

    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    Yep, night and day. My car feels much smoother than it used to, even when building boost, although that could have to do with my spring being a little too loose. It's exactly what I expected when I got the Blitz BOV, so I'm not surprised or complaining

    Actually I'm probably just going to keep it for car shows for the bling factor...even if I get a VF34, it's still not going to recirculate into the intake, so it might just have an even worse bogging effect than with the stock turbo. I MIGHT think about getting a Forge 50/50 or HKS recirculating BOV, but right now it's not worth the money for me.

    I took my stock bov off about 6 or 7 months ago. I couldn't get the clamp back on, and the clamp is sitting in a bag in my room right now. I haven't had it one since, and the hose hasn't came off, leaked, or anything. It's been a long while, so I think it'll be fine without. But it is a good idea to clamp it down with something. I should do that, but I'm planning on buying an aftermarket one soon anyway.

    hell, i love my Forge 100%, no problems whatsoever, and you can find them pretty cheap from time to time on ebay. and i always feel my car is running BETTER when some little 5hit is trying to come sick, and i just release the throttle next to him the best part is the look on their face in the rear view, kinda like , "that's a 4 door!" then like
    sorry, but i felt the aftermarket BOV needed some kinda "boost" in this thread, pun intended

    You dont really need the hose clamp. Anyways, when i first installed my Blitz BOV, whenever my rev dropped from a high rpm in neutral it would stall. The fix to this problem was simple, all i had to do was readjust the pressure screw, no probs afterwards.

    where to buy forge bov?

    It's been awhile since i have i seen anyone trying to sell their forge bov in the personale for sale forum. It looks like forge themselves stopped producing them.

    Anyone know anywhere else i can purchase this?
    Basically a Cobb Stage 2+lots of extras

    Stripped intercooler bov thread

    While I was putting my bov back on I overtightened it and stripped the thread on one of the 2 holes.. Is there anyway I can fix this.. don't tell me I have to buy another i/c.. I'm thinking about ordering a gfb bov. Some one told me that a new bolt should fix it.. any ideas?

    OK, I wont tell you then. Just kidding man, if it were me, and it were totally stripped, if prob remove the IC and try to re-tap it for a larger bolt, then use a larger bolt. Or if its still shot, you could buy an aftermarket BOV w/the bolt on adapters and have the adapter welded on, but that seems kinda extreame...any other opinions?
