    Twisty Monster - 335 ft/lb of torque @ 3600 rpm on a stock turbo. Is that possible? Yes it is.

    The BOV Subaru installed is the best, quietest choice of all. Why? It just is.

    If you are "TheDean" surely you would have some influence over the campus police.

    A BOV won't necessarally cause power loss, except maybe if it is improperly adjusted, which can happen quite easily. Some people have known BOV to also cause stumbling / slight lag between shifts which of course leads to a slight decrease in performance.

    Sorry but this is by far the more asked about topic on this board. There must be thousands of threads asking the same 3 questions.

    Well said.
    One of the benefits of having a turbo'd car is that sweet blow off noise, unless your car is a full on race car the slight performance decrease you may notice is negligible. so get it if you want one, you only live once.
