    Are you looking to buy one? I have one if so. It's the R2D2

    You know you are fast when you're cruising in 6th gear at 70 mph with cruise control on, you push up on the cruise control lever to accelerate and your head snaps back!

    What blow off valve to get ???

    I want to make it so that when i shift my blow off valve is a little louder. So the pppssshh sound is alot louder. To make that louder would i need a new BOV ?? Some people tell me not to put an aftermarket BOV on a stock STI and then some people tell me if i want it to be louder than to put a cone filter on it ??? What should i do ??? Is it true that aftermarket BOV's arent good for our cars ???

    In a nutshell, yes, aftermarket BOV are bad for subarus. I would reccomend the intake silencer delete, which is also known as the snorkus delete. It makes the stock bypass valve much more aduible and does not sacrafice driveability. If you search about BOVs or the intake silencer delete, you will find very valuable information on both.

    You will find out why a blow off valve is bad for your car if you do a search. Why would you spend $30K+ on a car and then just do whatever without some research?
    My water heater has a blow off valve.

    I'm wanting to remove my recirc hose and plug up the hole in the intake. I'm wondering if this is a good or bad idea and if it will hurt anything because a friend with a 90 something talon said his stock recirc was in the same basic place and he had a/f problems.
