    Even if you got to the point you need one the HKS SSQ leaks alot.

    it will scare the hell out of your engine too because you're running richer between shifts...and if you have a catless DP...flames FTW...


    Ninja Edit!:
    But I didn't notice you have a pretty nice setup with an STI swap...running some high numbers (so boost is probably higher), not bad. So a BOV on your setup isn't really all that bad

    that's why i wanna run cat-less and get a BOV at the same time, at least for a while, the flames would rule!

    Yeah WRXs run rich because they need the gas to compensate for condensed air...but too rich is too rich no matter what car= not good in the long run...

    I have the stock BPV and I still shoot a fireball here or there with my catless Invidia...but its not the best thing for the car and you can certainly get pulled over for it...

    ^^^There it is...the tune...that allows you to be running a BOV fine. Which is what many people in this thread don't know or care to learn about...quite a shame actually...
