    I was never a 2 pack/day guy. I would have 4-5 smokes a day. I'm still battling it. I don't know what it is about it, i guess i'm just a social smoker.

    blow off help

    I was wondering if a hks blow off valve for a 06 wrx will fit on the 07 wrx. And I would also like to know if there are any hp or torque gains with just a blow off. Thanks

    blow off valves are bad for wrxs unless you have major modifications and are tuned for it. search bov thread it will tell you everything there.

    In otherwords...you don't get any power gains from a BOV. About as much as vinyl stickers. You just get a cool sounding noise. You're better off spending your money on a couple kegs of beer.

    Yes an HKS would fit but hell no it doesn't give any gains.. It makes you run rich in between shifts and nothing more. Don't waste the money.

    But if you want one i have one for sale

    Bov is to power as civics are to fast

    If you want power get turbo back exhaust and engine management, not a BOV
