    Vent it into the cabin through the firewall. It'll sound super-cool albeit a bit loud. I think this is what the racers use to keep tabs on what their turbo is doing, (or is that ricers? tunas maybe?)
    If you don't blow it up once in a while,.....there's more power left in it.

    Actually, I ordered the Turbosmart WRX/STI Plumb back unit today. Not sure if I need it, but some money was burning a hole in my pocket and I have a wait between shifts with the 18-G. On the chance that the stocker wasn't flowing the air fast enough I ordered the Turbosmart unit.

    Not meaning to advertise for rallysport, but I don't yet know how to post pics here. New on this forum.

    Yet another BOV

    Yes i know all of you will kill me but this is just a question so please do not bash a fellow rex owner. Does anyone know if there is a BOV that does NOT hurt performance, i am looking to buy a blitz DD BOV supposibly it will work with stock ECU and keep it happy any input would help. btw i have a 06 wrx tr.

    Any recirculating BOV will not hurt performance. Unless you are running major boost, they will do the same job as the stocker.

    If you are looking for the PPPSSSSHHHHTTTT sound, just put your two lips together and make the sound everytime you shift. Plus, it's free.
