    subie nooby

    Ya i appreciate yer kindness.
    Did do reasearch within the site but saw a few diff opinions.
    Saw some guy cut his stock stuff which i want to avoid, I f i need or can buy an upgrade I will as long as it is proven, want to stay away from the experimental garage hack with his hacksaw.
    I judge who to believe by how many posts he has lol kinda silly?
    Any way i know the 06 is different and hope the mods apply to my year.
    I know a guy at hks they have an sti i also call him, just really busy.
    WHat are the cons to the silencer delete?? or what isnt functioning with it attathced?
    thnx bros, luv the new 06 sti is amazing.

    there are no cons to doing the mod. its just a silencer.. you can get this thing called the GP MOTO ELBOW basically replaces the silencer with a short elbow creating the same effect.

    i believe a new silencer from Subaru is like $70...so you're not destroying an expensive part...just hack it off and put some duct tape on it. This "experimental garage hack" has been around since 2001, and has definately stood the test of time.

    or get the GPMoto elbow.

    this won't make your valve sound that loud...you'll hear it when it pops durring heavy acceleration, but if you're attention wh0ring, this definately will not do it.

    Ok, since no body wants to help this guy, I guess I will be the nice one.

    He has obviously already searched on the issue since he knowns that stock BOV is good upto 19psi and that it often causes the car to run rich and get hesitation between shifts. He already searched around, and he just has another question that would actually be kinda hard to search for since the search for "BOV" turns up 500 results and not one thread on the first page would even be remotely useful to his question.
    link to search page: http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/search...archid=1457664

    Perhaps for those of us that have been here for a long time, our goal with this website shoudn't be just to mess around with one another, but also to help those that are in need. He didn't come here saying, "OMG I herd da supra go pssssssssshhhhhh & now I needz dat shiet y0!!11"

    Criticalm@ss:
    You are correct with your current outlook on the BOV. Most do cause you to run inefficiently and cause hesitation between shifts... All around not very good.
    However there are some BOV's for the wrx that are "stacker designs" and work quite well for the wrx. Not running rich, no hesitation, and all around 100% safe. These tend to run a little more money than the others like Greddy and HKS, but if you really want the sound then you are much better off with one of these:

    Worx
    Forge
    GFB (more expensive, and not as good. You are getter off with the above two).

    the elbow connects to that scoop in the front. as long as you cover the hole with some duct tape, it will be fine. The GPMoto doesn't have the hole.

    the people who suck in water are the ones that get CAI's that actually re-route the intake to right behind the fog light...you can probably figure out what would happen if you drove through a puddle with your intake that low.

    Bov ?

    Ok. I am trying to decide what to do. I bought my car with a Blitz BOV and the car runs good. It doesn't backfire at all. It pops occasionally in between shifts but thats it. I have been reading how BOV are a waste and putting the stock one on is best. I have the stock one and I just want to know if I will REALLY feel the difference going back to stock. I was also told by a few to take out my CAI and put the stock box back in. I was told it would run and pull harder. Well I did that and it made my car significantly slower. It spooled slower and didn't pull harder at all so I put my CAI back on. I don't want to waste my time with the BOV if it wont make a difference ya know. My mods are in my profile. Nothing big

    On that note, I am a n00b wondering, so what is the common practice of reseting the ECU? Disconnect/reconnect the battery?

    that would be the easiest way, yes.

    disconnect the battery, then pump the brake 5-6 times.
