    if you really want to sound cool, record the sound of pots and pans clanging together and play it over a PA system every time you shift.

    Wingless alas. Too bad it took a 50 ton truck to make it happen.

    In reality, the issue at hand when dealing with 20+ psi of boost is merely the strength of the valve itself, not so much the method (BPV vs. BOV) of displacing excess boost pressure. With that in mind, know that there are many aftermarket BPV out there that work exactly like the stock valve does, with all of the recirculation goodness, but are stronger and can hold boost pressures above 20+ psi like any aftermarket BOV can. So switching from recirculation to atmospheric for boost pressures above 20+ psi isn't necessary.

    you will need to weld the flange for the HKS onto the piping for the Turbo XS FMIC. Its been done, just need to weld it. Hope this helps.

    That HKS ssqv is also a BPV all you have to do is have the proper hardware (comes with kit or is sold seperately).

    It's bad for your car - return it and buy something that doesn't cause issues. If you need the noise you can buy one of the electronic BOV noise simulators off ebay.

    +123 to the above comment.

    Unless of course, you're rolling around with over 22+psi of boost, and/or are EXTREMELY modded and tuned for a blow-off valve. Which I highly doubt you are.

    I don't want to sound mean, but please, PLEASE read the stickies, research the forums, research YOUR CAR, and sell the blow off valve.

    There's no replacement for displacement. Except for a fat ass turbo!!!

    Why do people think a blow off valve is the first thing to buy on a turbo 32,000$ car?

    Help with bov

    I am under the impression that a bov on a sock WRX turbo is harmless but my friend keeps telling me it shortens the life of the turbo if you put a bov on a turbo with stock boost. Can anyone tell me which one of us is correct?

    because thats what you do on most other cars to increase the life of the turbo but not on subies
