    also, you can install TWO BOV's if you want REAL loud BOV sound.



    For real though, get rid of the BOV & get a nice TBE & an AP.
    Boom, whack, done.

    Mbc?

    Whats an MBC?? Not real fluent with the car lingo yet. lol. Will it compromise reliability? Also forgot that it has a short shifter installed. With a short shifter, no modifications would have to have been made to the transmission right? I want a stock transmission.

    yeah, short shifting is like short selling stocks, you get a lot more then you would otherwise.

    hey, nothing wrong with stupid questions....only stupid questions that have already been asked at least half a billion and can be answered with a simple search or reading the stickies.

    Okay I will do this one, I have not done one for a while.



    Alright, a BOV is not good for your car. It is a usless mod. All it does is make a cool sound and in the long run, hurts your car. It makes it run rich. Which is bad.

    Your CAI or Cold Air Intake is also a usless mod. It does nothing for your car other than making a whoooosh noise when you depress the pedal.

    We have a sticky that tells all about Good First Mods.

    Personally if I were buying that car, the first thing I would do is go have the factory BOV put back on and take off the intake.

    The exhaust I had was the HKS Carbon Fiber Ti. It was a great sounding exhaust and it did not get a whole lot of attention from the fuzz.

    Also I would go with a new down pipe. Invidia makes a great down pipe.

    There is my monthly quota.
