    Put your stock BOV back on and see what happens. If you're still having your boost problem then you know it's not your TXS BOV that's messed up but something else. Good luck.

    Got mine from Gruppe-s.com for $230 as a kit with everything you need. The price has since gone up to $280 though.

    when BOVs sell used, they sell for considerably below new price, and they should look and function exactly the same. thats the route i would go if i were you.

    That's what I meant. I just said it kind of vaguely.

    Hey, is there some guide to the stock wrx bov which says it will start leaking at 20psi? I'm just wondering for a few reasons. From what I've noticed, the spring pressure is frickin tight from the factory. Also, the more pressure is going through the bov, the more is holding it closed. Is it not a 1 to 1 ratio? Shouldn't the stock bov stay closed unless the pressure changes between the manifold to the intercooler? I thought the spring pressure is just there to claibrate how much the change actually has to be b4 the valve opens(could be wrong).... Wouldn't crushing the bov just make it less responsive?
    Thanks,
    hippy

    I'm kind of confused.. You're not trying to take the hose clamps all the way off, are you? You just loosen them and pull the hose off.. Sorry, I just don't see how there could be a problem.

    Oh THAT hose. That one is a biatch to get off. It took me about an hour. I managed to get a pliers on it enough to squeeze the clamp and rotate it on the hose. Once I got it to a postition I could get at easily, I pushed the clamp back up the hose a bit to release the pressure of it around the turbo.

    One guy I work with just used a dremel on the clamp and replaced it with a screw type clamp.
