    If your idle dips after it blows off, you should put another washer in. I eventually ran with five or six in mine and it worked fine. Hardly and backfires either.

    That was his question, why is the fitting on the opposite side. I'm not familiar with that BOV so i don't know if it's supposed to be like that but is it possible to pull the line to the other side? Seems like it would reach the other side.

    Is it "envy", or are they just laughing at you for being stupid!

    Stacking up that many washers will fix the idle drop, but cause a small compressor surge on the top end. There is no happy medium with a 100% BOV on a WRX.

    Yeah I picked up a HKS SSQV and the 1st day I hated it.. After a week I loved it.. But I found myself running high boost to get it to go off.. Then about two weeks after that I found myself running low boost so it wouldn't go off.. It didn't take long before it was on ebay.

    Yeah, there is a small bit of surge, but it is the only way to stop the idle from dropping. I modded the stock bov to hold more boost, and it surges like a mofo. That's the main reason I'm currently using the rfl. I have an apexi twin chamber on order for the fmic thats going in.
