    Okay, I know what you're talking about. I have that BOV...I just didn't know what that line was called. I called it the black line thingie

    stock BOV question

    Just got done installing new VF-34, STi injectors, and pump.
    It sounds like the BOV is venting at about 17 to 17.5.
    I get a real fast psh psh psh psh psh
    Is this common or does it sound like something else is wrong.
    Also is it possible to dent in the top of the bov to make it hold a little more boost. I'v heard of DSM's doing this, and I think our BOV's are almost the same things

    bov question

    well here is the problem:

    i tried to make my stock bov vent into the atmosphere instead of the intake and i did know enough to block off the hose going to the intake but it still ran like crap! everytime i got of the gass it almost stalled because it was running too rich( i think). have any of you done this or have any of you put an aftermarket bov on you rex and if so how did you vent it to the atmosphere instead of the intake?

    thanks for the imput guys

    that doesn't sound like a smart idea...the stock is not meant to work that way.

    Even aftermarket BOV's that are 100% atmosphere can make your car run like crap.

    In the instructions it said that the BOV was pre-set right out of the box. But the instructions also have a picture of a BOV being installed in an STi(the TMIC has the logo on it). Did any of you guys adjust you BOV, and if so please tell me by how much and the affect it had on your WRX. I've had mine for about a week and my gas mileage really sucks! Thanx
