    Obviously, he only needs the maf replaced for 300 and the cats are not there cuz he took them out so he doesn't need that fixed.

    so any opinions
    Thanks,

    Why does it say in the website that this is one of the only BOV's on the market that does not throw a CEL ?

    It seems like more people run there BOVs open atmosphere and have no problems . I may try it ? Any other comments ?

    Had HKS SSQV, once I put the stock one back on I was amased. Better gas milage, no more back firing, a LOT peppier between shifts. The recirc keeps the turbo spooled. I would go with one w/recirc.

    I DON'T KNOW ABOUT BOV'S THROWING A CEL ON BUT IT SHOULDN'T, OR MAYBE IT'S WAS A FALSE ADVERTISEMENT

    ONLY COMMENT I HAVE ON THE B-SPEC USA BOV IS IT SOUNDS LIKE A MISSILE FIRING AT OTHER CARS SIGNALING TO GET OUT OF THE WAY!!!!

    I am torn between the Forge and the Greddy Type-S . I have had the type S before on my twin turbo RX-7 and it was great . God and Garret from world one both said to go with the Greddy . I need a good BOV that WILL hold 20 PSI + . I dont know if the Forge will hold that much boost ? I cant find any info on weather it can or not ? I have searched all night ! I may just run the greddy and try it 100% open atmosphere . I have the E-01 and E-manage which says in the manual that you can tune for a BOV so that it will not run rich or stall out the car . It is called the anti engine stall . Does anyone know how to set up that feature on the E manage ? Thanx . Dave

    Honestly, I just don't need it, my car is practically stock. I have it on the car right now. I will shoot some video of it on the car when I get home and let you know a price.

    I am running mine at 17.5 and I am sure that there wouldn't be a problem running 20 with the stiffest spring.

    Just give them a call and ask. They have great customer service.

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

    I just put on the GFB hybrid at 100% atm. last week and it seems to be doing grrrrreat! (babies everywhere!!!...lol, sorry, funny commercial). I have noticed that the turbo spools up faster and I have better throttle response. I am very satisfied. As to the whoosh sound, it is not too loud, not too quiet. A nice clean air sound. Higher pitched than the forge.

    If I decide to get rid of it, I will do $150 shipped. It includes the plug for the recirculate hose too. It has a scratch on the top. I will post a video later this afternoon.
