    GFB stealth BO/BPV

    02 wrx 330 whp

    http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/showpo...61&postcount=1

    I ordered the GFB stealth BOV from gruppe-s that shows the pipe bungs
    on the intake [bottom and the one for the BPV on the left.
    It is going on a front mount intake pipe and will be running in full By Pass mode.
    See above FM piping.



    What I got was one without the bungs.



    Although the Gruppe-s picture shows the bung piping at the bottom
    and the left, Max says they are not included.
    Not trashing Gruppe-s as they are the best.
    Just need a solution.

    Cheers

    Dave

    Back to Stealth GFB

    Here is how I need to try and get the GFB BOV
    to fit on my FM.
    The one that was shipped seems to be for a
    top mount stock set-up.

    If that flange doesnt come off then you have the wrong valve. You can buy an adapter plate and make that bov work, or you can sell it and buy the other one. The one you bought is Subaru specific, the one you need is a universal GFB bov. You probably ordered the Subaru one from GST. Personally I'd just get the adapter flange and weld it the the FMIC piping.

    SSQV Question

    I searched and searched and only found one viable thread, and it didn't answer my question so here it goes...

    I have an 02 WRX w/ HKS intake, HKS DP/UP, full HKS 3" exhaust, Cobb AccessECU 255hp/265tq reflash from 2003) and a HKS SSQV bov.

    I am looking for a Recirculation kit or insert for it mainly, so I get rid of the slight hesitation wot during shifts (i'm told its running rich due to the bov and the ecu is correcting it, thats the issue)

    I bought the car this way and runs great... I just don't want to take any chances.

    I couldn't find a specific wrx kit, but the universal fitting should work? along with a hose/clamp i'll pick up at a hardware store.

    Does anyone have a pic of were the hose off the ssqv goes into? I think its right in front of the nose of the bov, but im a former honda guy thats trying to figure out this new platform. Thanks For any Help!

    Turbo smart makes a very good rec. but a stock one will work great. Those #'s seem very high if it is whp, how much boost are you running.

    Recirc adapter

    I have the hks ssqv bov and I just ordered the recirc adapter for it. The question I have is, the adapter is 1" and the factory recirc hose is 2 1/4, there is no reducer that has that big of a gap. What can I do to connect these hoses?

    I'm running perrin's fmic
    blouch 2.5r dom

    Thanks
