    As long as it fully recirculates, there isn't really a big difference. If you notice stuttering or hesitation with the aftermarket recirc valve, then you should definitely shift back to the stock valve.

    Turbosmart dual port BOV?

    what do you guys think about this BOV. Is it a good replacement and will it give the same performance as the stock but with a little louder sound. Just want the sound without decreasing performance or MPG. Basically want to maintain everyday driveability. Thanks

    BOV is the worst waste of money part you could possibly buy, dont buy 1 unless your making a kajillion HP and have a front mount.. save your money and buy exhaust components and a cobb AP

    Can you hear the stock BOV on a stock STi clearly?

    like inside and outside? or do you need to remove that jug thing like you do in a WRX?
