    a bov on a used car that is otherwise unmodified will probably tell you that some punk teenager revved the piss out of the motor numerous times...i.e. the real name: show-off valve

    I have an aftermarket BOV but I'm not some punk teenager revving the piss outta my motor numerous times.

    Generalizations on a whole are ignorant.

    BTW mine is completely silent too so it's not a "show-off valve"

    If you bought it from a Subaru Dealership than you have a lawsuit on your hands. According to my dealership after I traded in my WRX for the STi, SOA will not allow their dealers to sell a car that has a voided warranty. If the warranty was voided they are forced to wholesale the car. If they did not directly make it known that the vehicle being sold did not have a warranty then you can sue their butts off. I know I would.

    You should tell them to GIVE you a stocker since they sold you the car without the right equipment or else you'll go to SOA and let them know the dealer made a boo boo.

    And no it's super easy to change out.

    worx says 50% for daily driving should workout fine (at least for my WRX) might be different for the STi, but def. don't DD w/ 100% you'll fry your cats.

    It obviuosly depends on the dealership. Mine says (Findley Subaru, Las Vegas) that as long as the aftermarket part doesn't break what you are trying to fix then you are golden. Check out this site if you haven't already:

    http://www.sema.org/main/semaorghome...MAorg/HomePage

    SEMA is all for the fight against vioding warrenties becuase of after market parts. Its BS and you should fight it. Good Luck.

    PS Chigger gives your dealership the finger!
    If it wasn't for my horse I wouldn't have spent that year in college.
