    what if u get a recirculating BOV? i know for the evo APS makes a duel vent one. it recirculates almost all the time except when you get at it turns to VTA. also it makes that sweet "CHOOO" sound. not the sound of a screaming chicken like HKS. i think your best bet would be APS if they make one for the wrx

    You can take a horse to water, but you can't teach him to drink.

    I need a BOV, CAI, MBC, wheel spacers, HID look lights, neons

    So I have already improved my cars aerodynamics with a body kit and I am looking to improve the performance of my car some more. I am thinking of getting or making a CAI. Also I am looking for the loudest BOV possible. I want to eventually switch to a widebody kit so I need some wheel spacers. Also I am looking for the fake HID lights. I am thinking of getting a MBC to help turn up the power. I was thinking of setting the MBC at 18 psi, what do you think?

    Oh yeah I want some neon underbody lights too.

    So yeah can you guys tell me where I can get these things? I hear ebay has some good stuff.

    lol holy crap man. why dont you just answer my question? id do a search but everytime i do, its another thread about sum1 asking a simple question with members like yourself telling him to search. if ppl just sucked it up and answered every1s question there would be such a huge amount of good info in the search finds. slowly ppl would start asking less questions becasue once they popped whatever it is they wanted in the search space they would find there answer in 2 seconds. they wouldnt search, find 50 threads about somehting that isnt really explain right cause they are told to search. sorry im really gettin into this but i see this goin on in every forum i go to and its so annoying. i really dont mind seeing a question answered 50 times. its actually better, youll see a range of more ppls views.

    Although Ebay would be a great place to look, most of these products that you are concidering are not recommended here.

    Do a search on here for some more info.
    ...If you ever need anything please don't hesitate to ask someone else first.

    I also got a TurboXS RFL on my 04, and it runs fine, but i also have my car custom EcuTek tuned so that might be another reason. Before the tune, the BOV would go off, while not even in boost! Now i have to actually be in boost for it to go off. Works like a charm, and i can keep it quiet if i want to now, yay!
