    Thank You. That was much more informative than the sticky that is in this forum. I am really not trying to stir up any problems or make enemies around here, so don't take my post the wrong way. I was confused and did not know that the BOV is different from the BPV. Like I said before, I am not an expert by any means with this vehicle and I am only trying to learn. This is the reason why I wanted to post on this subject. I think that anybody needing info about this will get a great deal of help now.

    no offense but your going to get flamed pretty quick here with that question. A BOV is not the best mod at all, it can even hurt performance. try exhaust components first, or even EM. also please read the stickies on the engine forum you will learn a great deal.

    Hello and welcome!

    The best BOV is the on Subaru installed. Really.

    Have a look in the sticky at the top of this forum.

    The stocker is the one that will work best on cars with close to stock power levels. To answer your question though, I would recommend the HKS or TiAL BOV's, I have heard of the least problems with them (aside from the problems running a BOV can cause when it isn't needed) and they both sound great, which is a plus, no matter what anyone says

    Instead of a show-off valve, why don't you buy something useful? Maybe a sway bar or a short term Certificate of Deposit?
