    that would be a bad idea not to put the stock BPV back on.

    if your car is not idling rough or hesitating between shifts you might as well leave it. i'm sure you like the sound and hunting down a stock bpv will cost time and $. there is'nt a significant amount of problems with venting to the atmosphere anyhow.
    as for the cold-air intake, you should ditch that as fast as you can. reset the ecu after insatlling the stock box
    I want my subie back.

    If you're running a catted uppipe get rid of the BOV too if you don't want chunks of converter flying into your turbo.

    yeah I think I will leave the BOV. As for the CAI it's staying on. I was told to do that already so I went out and paid the $ for a used one. Installed with a K&N and reset the ECU. The car pulled weaker and took more time to spool. NOT HAPPY. The box is in my coset and it will stay there.
