    A local dude who bought some of my parts showed me his bov(exact one) on stock I/C. Trumpet goes face up. He actually plugged the return line and has it running 100% atmos. It fires up and down(top/bottom). Sounded good. It is big. Would not fit on the V.1 tmic I sold him. Nothing does but Grahamgoode BOV.
    still stock

    90/10 recirculated bov

    a friend of mine is fabricating a blow off valve... now i know bov's make the car rich between shifts, yadda yadda.. ive read ones that partially recirculate the air aren't as bad as 100% atmospheric... there are 50/50 ones out there....

    but my question is, would a 90% recirculated 10% atmospheric bov work even better with the car than a 50/50....? ie most of the air would be recirculated, but youd still get some noise. is there a 90/10 out there?

    WorxTuning is the closest that I know of. It has 5 settings from 100% atmoshpere to 100% recirculate.

    I assume you don't need the valve, and from your post I know you do "need" the noise. It might be a waste of time and money to buy or fabricate a valve if your existing valve works as intended - and it does - if you are looking for the audio.

    Get the dimensions for the "trumpet" section of a BOV that makes the noise you like most. If you're going to fabricate something, then fabricate the trumpet section alone. Rig it to an air horn controlled by a relayed circuit activated by a switch on the clutch pedal.

    Keep your existing valve. Whenever you hit the clutch pedal, the air horn-BOV trumpet you've made will go off. This way you'll have the noise you want and a car that runs too.

    well i had an hks ssqv that i got for free... i used that for a while then read about how they were bad for the car.. so i sold it.. now im running the stock BPV, and thats good. but my friend at engineering school is going to be making bov's and ill get one for free. sooo i was just wondering if running a 90/10 would keep the car running almost stock since most of the air would be recirculated

    Provided the valve is designed correctly in all aspects except where the air goes, the car will run as expected - like a car that has a temporary, inducible, unidirectional intake leak.

    Perrin BOV

    Anybody have the New Perrin bov in there car, or anyone hear of how effcient it is. Im just wondering because I want to get a bov eventually but from what I have read is that its worthless unless u up your boost, and they cause problems. So what I am really asking is "Would this bov work well with a lightly modded wrx?"
