    Does not have less performance just not needed.

    Stock valve is good to 20 psi.
    If you get a BOV get one that recirculates the air back into the intake tract. The HKS SSQBOV is a good choice.

    If you want a full atmospheric valve I suggest the Forge, I've got a Forge atmospheric w/ no problems.

    Also do a search there is tons of info here.
    Now: 04 WRB STi (stock)

    Does your BOV do this?

    Under heavy engine load (like going up a slight hill), when I floor the gas pedal in lower to mid RPMs like below 4500 in 3rd or above and let go of the pedal while the car is still under heavy engine load & low/mid RPM, the BOV rarely vents if at all. Most of the times when this happens, I either hear the BOV vent for a split second or compressor surge because the BOV failed to vent. Under other situations though the BOV vents fine.

    I've had 2 BOV's so far: GFB Stealth FX and the TXS RFL (my current one), and I get similar behavior. Does your BOV do this? If this is not normal, what could be wrong? I really want to keep the BOV, but this behavior is worring me.

    Thanks

    Also, if you have a used muffler bearing (ball bearing type), let me know.

    I'm ready to buy my BOV but where?

    Does anyone know where to get the best deals on mods for our cars? I am looking to get a HKS BOV or a Greddy Type S BOV....Does anyone have either of these installed on their STi?

    Thanks.

    I noticed that mine tends to vent when coming off a very hard push. Other times it just quieted down, and stopped venting like it usually did.
    I had washed the engine bay a few times, so I decided to oil the BOV shaft (I guess I'll call it that) with a lil oil (using my finger), and it seems to release everytime. surge stopped also...

    Not sure if that's the case with you, but it might be worth the try...

    The Greddy is a piston valve (push) and will not work as well as the HKS IMO. I'd recommend keeping the HKS.

    I'm pretty sure I've seen a recirc. kit for the HKS.... you might want to look into that.
