    Good idea. When you try to post a BOV thread, it instantly sends you to a BOV search page!

    greddy type s bov install

    yeah, I know this has been covered but I still haven't found what I'm looking for.

    Is there a direct bolt on adapter from a greddy type s to the wrx intercooler? I don't want to get an adapter and then have to get it welded and blah blah. I want a direct bolt on. Is there one and where can I get it?

    Question Bov ?

    Yes another BOV question. I am wondering I have heard a variety of diffrent stories, myths, rumors, etc about BOV. Some say they are good for your engine and some say they can hurt your engine. What is the bottom line truth on them ? I really want one and If you guys could reccommend an A+ BOV that would be great.

    anyone that recommends a bov as a 'good' mod is misinformed....most atmospheric bov's will hinder performance...

    if you must get a bov get one that is 50/50 or Dual Vent...hopefully it won't hinder performance....

    Stock.

    Keeping it properly adjusted during weather changes, studdering inbetween shifts, crappy idle, potential catalytic converter failure...no thanks.

    $200 at least for a part that HINDERS performance is better spent on actual performance parts.
