    Yes it would, stock bov stays open at idle and recirculates air back, trying to force it to stay shut on a maf based system is not going to work right.

    Just put the stocker back on, your causing harm to your car.

    just to be some what realistic...

    If you mention that the average speed is 110 and 130 then the answer of 2 hours still makes sense. only because they don't take off at 130 from stand still doesn't mean they won't make up for the slower times by going more than 110/130... to average something you have a high a low and then everything in the middle. Granted someone is going to argure semantics on who the question was posed but either way the same answer will always come up... "both trains ran higher speeds with out BOV's".

    Dude, I've read all of those threads that you just put links to prior to my first post....so im not being lazy, i've searched. Maybe you dont understand my question. Did you watch the video link in my first post? Do you hear the noise that sounds like a BOV when the guy shifts? My question, from the begining, is whether the intake is causeing that noise or if the guy probably has a BOV. Im not asking if you get HP gain from and intake/exhaust, or what the noise is under the hood sinse i put an intake in....all i wanted to know is whether the guy in that video had a BOV or if his intake was causing that noise.

    Oh I definately understand your question... And there is a RBV recirculating bypass valve that you are able to hear more with a sri (short ram intake) You could have found this on 2 of those 3 posts.

    Just so everyone is aware. I felt like b*tching today.
    This thread can be good. Make a couple of random clicks, try to find the info you're looking for. If not, ask someone. Isn't that one of the basic reasons for forums in general? Who cares if the question has been asked a hundred times. If you don't want to answer it, <i><b>don't</i></b> answer it. I promise, it won't take that much work. If you're a noob, take some time to search beforehand. If you're just a **** who wants to flame noobs for not knowing any better, keep it to yourself.
    I'm done ranting.

    I wasn't arguing with the "2 hours at average speed" answer, rather I was pointing out the impossibility of JR's (wrx wagone) "constant speed" scenario.

    Of course, if the train was equipped with a recirculating BOV, then it could indeed achieve an instantaneous velocity of 110/130mph, (infinite acceleration), and redeem JR in the eyes of his forum peers.

    I don't think this will ever happen.
