    No problem with mine. Just make sure the spring is tight enough so that it holds boost and idles fine, and you should be ok.

    my friend has that one on his Integra, it sounds pretty sweet...do they vary from car to car, or is one HKS SSQ BOV the same as any other?

    The closest I've done to a performance mod is removing the intake silencer. Soon I'll be ordering a downpipe. The kit fits perfectly and required no adjustments for me. Maybe others tried to adjust it or something.

    A car *bucking* due to an atmospheric BOV? It may have happened, but come on. Mine's given no problems whatsoever, so I'm sticking with it.

    im well aware of the problems with BOV's and the STi and all that other good stuff

    whats weird is some are having problems...others arent

    what i would like to know is:
    there is 2 different kits for the HKS SSQV BOV
    theres one for the regular WRX
    and one just for the STi

    those who are having problems....which one are you using???
    the one for the regualr wrx
    or the one just for the STi?

    im trying to see if they changed the BOV from the regular wrx and the STi
    what i really mean is are there 2 different BOV's...

    The BOV itself would be the same. And since either one fits, I'm assuming the base pieces used to bolt it on are the same but just listed differently so the STi guys don't have to ask if the WRX kit fits.

    I also said it vary's from car to car. Do this on an MR2 and they run so rich they have shut off mid-shift. Its an explination of what is going on, I never said to get rid of you bov

    Its simply information for people that wonder why this happens when they switch to an aftermarket bov not a "Sell your BOV's now" Statement
