    turbosmart dual-port BoV

    So i bought a Turbosmart Dual-Port BoV from a local subaru dealership. Its new, got it for about $275. I know, i've been warned about BoVs before, but the people at the dealership assured me that it was safe to have on the car. The car is an 06 wrx. However, after having it on the car for about a week, i can smell some boost through the vent. Also, can hear the turbo spooling down after i shift a lot louder now. Is this normal? Should i just take this thing off and back to the dealer?

    haha. if you like the sound keep it... its your car. yes, you will suffer driveability issues and get a rich surge followed by a lean surge between shifts.

    most on here will say no to a open atmosphere bov.

    but, anyone on clubwrx.net can only give you suggestions. i have a turboxs type h-rfl. i am goining to remove it tommorow for my stock one, then maybe by this weekend i might get a turbosmart adjustable bov. not sure yet... does anyone have this one or will i get mocked...

    mine is adjustable. It seems to be working fine. I was just curious as to the smell coming through the vent and the sound of the turbo spooling down being more evident. When i said the smell smelled like boost, i meant it smelled as though the air being blowed off into the atmosphere was being leaked through the vent and as to whether or not this was normal. Of course i did a search on that, and couldnt find anything and i asked. Some people just like to pop up and say ZOMG USE THE SEARCH for some reason.
