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

    574 pages later, and there are n00bs asking like they are going to get a serious answer. My long winded explaination I think is buried somewhere in the first 20 pages but I am not going to waste my time trying to look for it.

    Many of the n00bs aren't actually posting to this thread. They're starting up a new BOV thread elsewhere, and mods are merging them all into here.

    Post STI Blow off valve (waste gate)

    I just bought a 2005 STI two weeks ago and am interested in upgrading the stock blow off valve to a nice loud one. Any suggestions on which to buy? I'm most likely going to get one off ebay.

    Thanks guys

    yeah dont do that... instead, try searching and see why this IS NOT A GOOD IDEA!

    and a blow off valve and wastegate are two totally diffrent components...

    Do NOT get a blow off valve for any reason. It is very bad for the car. If you go over 22psi because of a HUGE turbo then you can get a 100% recirculating valve.
