    I love the funny ass looks it gets when it goes off. Funnier yet is the looks my mom got when she had to drive it for a week.

    Opinion on best all-around BOV?

    I had a supercharger before so the turbo world I'm still learning...anyway, I said all around best choice in terms of performance and sound as well as when the cars stock and maybe with a bigger snail later...or just what you guys are running and why...thanks in advance

    Man, I'm just gonna tell you now: delete this thread and do a search. Not only is this arguably the most discussed topic on the forums, these threads are often filled with sarcasm by the veteran members and choice words are often thrown at the poster of the thread (which in this case would be you)

    To answer your question, no BOV will give an increase in performance, if anything, they will cause a decrease in performance because they mess with your vehicles A:F ratio. the stock BOV is fine up to something like 22 PSI and an aftermarket BOV is for "bling bling" only.

    I agree w/ this man. The stock WRX BOV is capable of doing it's job up to 20+ psi, so you might as well take it off your mod list...

    I like the BCS-t type 4ra BPV adapter plate for the stock BOV flange housing. Works great at PTFB for WOT ecu's.

    The best thing I like about my BOV was that I was able to sell it to buy my JDM STi uppipe. esta mucho better without it. I had a GFB Hybrid 50/50 & it was kinda cool for a week then it just annoyed me.

    I have had the catless uppipe on for a couple months & so far it hasn't annoyed me at all

    Received mine yesterday and it is sick. Im running it at 50/50 and it is loud enough. No boost creep or any of the things you might expect when running other BOV's. Took a long time to get but it was worth the wait.
    4 Tickets in 5 months of owning it....and counting!
