    BOV = CRAP for non to slightly to even somewhat modded subies!

    If you wanna argue with people with a lot of time behind the wheel of subies, fine! I'm going to start hosting clubBOV.net soon. You can just go there, get flamed, look at riced out cars and go to bed.

    How many BOV threads will it take?

    YES, YOU WILL RUN RICH! IF YOU LOVE FOULED PLUGS, BY ALL MEANS, BOLT ONE ON! GO PSSSSHHT PSSSSHT TILL YOU MOMS TELLS YOU TO BE QUIET IN THE DRIVEWAY, BUT KNOW THAT IT IS BAD FOR YOUR CAR!!!!!!!!!!!


    go ahead, ask again what kind you should use. sure, KHS is great...










    BTW, how much RAW JDM power are you looking to gain from something dumping your oxidizer outside your INTERNAL COMBUSTION ENGINE?









    meh...




    EDIT


    P.S. yes, I am a spaz

    Don't be a silly goose. Empirical data, supported by years of Impreza drivers' experience isn't worth shiz when compared to the stunna soundz of the PssshhhhhhTTTT!

    Greddy type RS BOV help

    I have done many searches on this btw, and blah blah etc. Can someone help me?

    1. Took off my stock BOV
    2. Took black.. vacuum/piping off.. (I guess you can call it that, pretty fat.)
    3. Took small black line off.
    4. Now when I put my new BOV on, how do I put the fat black vacuum? Do I plug it with the black piece they gave me and just stick the new BOV right on, put in the small line and leave it all that?

    Please help, thanks.

    Plug the big black hose and attach the small one to the bov.

    Also, the stock black small tube doesnt fit the BOV, so I pulled it off of the old BOV and off of where it was connected at start, now I can't get the smaller one the BOV came with on where the stock black line was cuz its to small? Hard to get in there anyways.. So any help?

    Try posting this in the regional forum, a local guy to you might be able to lend a helping hand.
    Please read all the stickies we have about BOVs, good luck.

    Yea, get rid of the bov.. It messes the engine up.. You need to read more of the forums around here... I have learned a lot here, but I guess you haven't.. I don't have my sti yet but very soon!

    But if you really want to keep that bov, just remember it gives you another 200hp and you get to hear that pssshhtt!
