    With 100% atomosphere, i love it. It works perfectly- no hesitation, or idle stumble. Its quiet when you want but it will turn heads when your on it. Plus it was fairly cheap!!!!

    BOV pricing

    I am a little confused. I went to the Forge website and it seems that just about all the BOV listed from forge are $150. Shopping some of our vendors I see $190's. Is there something extra the vendors are putting into the Forge that Forge themselves don't? I am trying to decide between the Forge and the RFL...decisions decisions.
    87 Buick Grand National....not running. Sold engine to Slipknot and building way bigger V6 Stage 2.

    03 Ford F250 Crew Cab long bed 4x4 6.0L Powerstroke Diesel, 5sp automatic, and one killer stereo!

    03 Subaru WRX...17" battles to go on, STi foglamp covers, rolling stealth mode except for the stereo. The wifes ride.

    02 Ducati 900 Monster Dark...we share this one!

    Unhappy HKS BOV causes engine surge.. help please

    Hi everyone,


    I recently installed an HKS universal SSQ BOV with the WRX-specific flange that I bought from HKS. The valve seems to work fine but for some reason, when it blows off, I get a mild surge in engine RPM's. I know that this is a 100% atmospheric BOV, so is this little surge the "rich condition" that everyone talks about? ie: the air has been metered for but doesnt go into the engine? It's quite mild and I could probably live with it, but its just a little bizarre, and throws off my shifting.

    Thanks in advance,

    -FB123

    ('02 Platinum Silver UP/DP HKS CB)

    ps: called HKS usa tech support and they were no help.. To those of you who bought the entire WRX kit, did yours include a little black vacuum filter or something? Could lacking this part cause my problem?

    You mean the engine RPM's suddenly rise? I've been getting that a lot lately, but I found out it was just me. You have to adjust your shifting if you get a BOV, and maybe you just haven't adjusted yet.

    The vaccuum kit you're talking about, is it a little black hose that you hook up to another vaccuum line?

    I hope you figure this out. I'd be interested to hear what the solution is....

    Lift off the throttle earlier and FULLY when you shift. When shifting quickly, a mild surge in engine speed is normal.

    The filter, which I saw as part of the HKS WRX BOV kit, was a little black disc a little larger than a quarter, with vacuum in and out. The salesperson at the store described it as a vacuum filter, but I dont know if thats what it actually is. HKS tech support didnt even really know what was in the kit.

    So - is it normal to get a little RPM surge with a BOV and I should just adjust my driving to suit?

    Thanks,

    Sounds like an adapter maybe between two different sizes of hose...?

    hey

    yes it is totally normal for your rpm to rise a little when you push the clutch in expecially when driving agressively. When you accelerate you are making the engine push the transmition to go quicker, and if you don't take your foot off the gas a little b4 you depress the clutch, the momentom will make the engine gain rpm. Rpm goes up when you put your foot and the gas and the car is in neutral right? I mean it's even normal to get a little boost surge because the engine starts slowing down quick and the turbo is still pushin air through....

    Surge aside, your going to want to get your hands on one of the filters, it keeps gunk from building up inside the BOV.
