    Naaa I wasn't there.

    I did however see a Silver WRX yesterday witha Solo2.org sticker near the rear tire. She had a bike rack and some nice rubber on the stock wheels.

    I was the WRBlue guy who parked next to you. You had to see me when you left. Was that you? Anybody here? It was at the Town 4 townhomes off Olive and 270.

    Question Wrx Bov

    Anybody has installed a BOV for 2002 WRX? Which one is the best in the market? Can the turbo lag be reduced significantly?
    Is there any web site that describes the installation in detail?

    Any help would be highly appreciated

    Although I am no definitive source on Blow Off Valves, I know that HKS, Turbo XS, and Blitz all make respectable ones. Not many people really do it for large performance gains - for it is mostly a noisemaker, if you are into that sort of thing.

    Although I have no first-hand experience with BOVs for our cars, the consensus around here is that aftermarket BOV that vent 100% to atmosphere make the WRX run pig rich between shifts, causing some bogging. This may not be a documented fact, but it seems to be the trend. The stock BOV is said to hold up to 20 psi anyway.

    The stocky works well with the resonator mod, but what I haven't seen is conclusive proof that a 50/50 BOV can't outperform the stocky and keep the turbo spooled better between gear shifts.
