    biggist problem with bov aftgermarket is that some people crank them down causing the waste gate to fludder. yep that = turbo trying to spin in the wrong direction. if it's on there right i would say no worries.

    That's exactly what happens to me.
    I have Worx BOV and it came set on the second from the easiest spring level. When i had it on 100% atmo it was almost stalling because the piston in BOV would not close vents fast enough after letting off the gas, and also it had some waste gate flutter. so i adjusted it to the middle spirng setup (stiffer) and the idle was ok but flutter became even worse and valve would not vent enough. Idle was better but i didn't want to kill my turbo. Went to the most easy sprint setup and flutter almost dissapered but idle is even worse. If you drive it on 100% recirc it's fine. So i went back to Worx-factory-spring-setup and now i don't know whether to sell it because there is no point of keeping it if i want to run 100% recirc, or to sell it. ???

    If a mod can cross post this in tutorial that would be great

    1.First you have to get a crappy 5 dollar metric 1/4 drive set at pep boys
    2.Then you have to remove old bov and hoses
    3.While at pep boys you need to get some duct tape and JB weld
    4.Remove the factory BOV that you dont need anymore
    5.Apply a thin layer of duct tape over any/all holes created (If you want to go with the smooth look cover up the bolt holes that hold the BOV on)
    6.Apply a HEAPING helping of JBweld to all holes. Allow time to set up.
    7.Take a small air grinder and clean up the weld. Dont put to much pressure on the weld for it might not hold.
    8.Stand back and admire your handwork for removing your BOV... you have yourself a true sleeper and not to mention the weight you saved.

    Kiss your compressor wheels goodbye when the system needs to let off pressure

    if you have HKS SSQV, buy the HKS recirc kit and make it recirculate its only 12 bucks. WRX BOV operation is like a 4min procedure.
    Have a Greddy Evo 2 cat-back Exhaust system, willing to trade for: Greddy Ti, Apex'I N1, or Apex;I GT cat-backs. California only! PM if interested!

    an aftermarket bov is not needed for a stock rex...the stock bypass valve is good up to about 17 psi....if you get any bov get a recirculating one because if you get an atmospheric bov you will mess up the A/F....do a search and you will find alot more info
