    It's okay every n00b forgets that you need 3 bovs to hold steady boost.

    Seriously though dude, If you're going to get a bov get one that recirculates back to the intake tract. if you get one that vents to the atmosphere you're just going to make your car run rich betweenshifts and depending on how you set up the tension on it, give yourself a rough idle.

    Does that sound like it's worth the PSHH? Do the right thing son, Get a nice Downpipe and Cat-Back if you don't have them already. Your car will sound much better and you'll make some easy power.

    What brands currently make a BOV for 06 WRXs and will an STI BOV fit perfectly into an 06 WRX. I was looking into HKS.

    The stock one fits perfectly. Use that.


    Dont waste your money on a bov, it will just make the car run poorly and make an annoying sound. But its your car, you can ruin it if you want.

    Don't forget the uppipe! Everyone always orgets the uppipe. It'll help your turbo spool much better.

    no one listens to us...apparently we are stupid compared to the noobs who come on here. we should all agree that aftermarket BOV's are great for these cars to make their decision easier.
