    2003WRX- I am really sorry to hear you feel this way. Especially since in another thread on NASIOC you said how pleased with the quality and performance of our valve you were. I will admit the loud ring didnt turn out as well as planned, but we really didnt do them for that long. We ended up going with some internal changes to increase sound output, although it wasnt really designed to be a fancy noise maker like some.

    Really, I again state my point the proper adjustment is a very key factor. As I said in my post above, they do have a tendency to function differently depending on driving styles and level of modification. We as a company have been quite proactive in working with customers with modified wrx's to iron out any performance problems they have had due to simple spring issues. We actually just finished up a new performance spring kit for our valve that has 3 springs of varying rate and load ratings and also a shim that doubles the level of adjustment to 10 positions. We sent these kits out to 20 customers to test for us with not one of them able to find a spring that didnt work perfectly.

    I really do get a kick out of people that will drop in on a thread like this with a quick one line sarcastic remark though .

    i hear ya on the one liner's
    i wonder if they even bothered to read the info...
    It would help me if you go over some of the basics of maintainence and adjustment. maybe bov's wouldn't get such a bad name if people were more educated on thoes two topics.
    thanks for taking the time to add that info to this thread.

    When I first got the original valve I was excited about it and posted a positive response. This is probably what you found when researching my username on NASIOC (lol, btw). After having it for awhile, and taking into account I drive my car once a week so the effects of the thing became apparent over time (it wasnt drastic like the HKS), I thought otherwise. I had driven around for a few weeks unhappy with the valve and ultimately while trying to find an exhaust leak I finally removed/sold it. I tried the v1.2 sometime after having a new uppipe installed (which fixed the leak). Neither of your valves ultimately worked to my satisfaction so I must assume my particular car and your design don't like each other. Anyway, you made $500 off me, so I wouldn't get too bent that I dislike your valve...

    2003wrx- Hey, we are all entitled to our own opinion. Its cool. I just remembered you from NASIOC since I was the one posting in that thread.Thanks for buying 2 valves, we do apreciate your business. We are currently on ver 1.25 so if you ever want to try one with the new updates and spring rates, let me know and I sell you one for dealer cost.

    It is experiences like yours that make us work harder. Even though 95% of people that have bought one of our products love it, it is the other 5% that keep us motivated to do bigger and better things.

    Thanks
    Mike

    I think just by this representation on the thread by WORXtuning shows that the company is working hard to make the best products possible for our cars. I'm not cocksukin or anything i'm just appreciating a company showing an effort for our cars and to care enough about a single individual's feedback on one of their products tells a lot about the company.

    Zem, you are saying that a MAP sensor dosen't work well with an atmosperic bov? i thought that was the whole point of switching over to a MAP sensor. It is closer to where the air actually goes in, so it should be more accurate no? Also since it is postioned after the bov, it dosent matter what kind of bov you have?
