    Not at all. The hardest part was taking out the resinator, which isn't too bad at all. Mine was actually out two months prior to this install. All you have to do is take out the stock air box, and mount the new intake in it's place. I can definately hear my turbo spooling even louder after installing the intake. That thing is huge...I love it

    I've been running the GFB bov for about seven months now. I have it set 50/50 and haven't had a single problem with it.

    Does the HKS SSQ have a 50/50 recirc kit?

    Open or Closed end BoV

    ive heard that the open ended BoV sound cool but can lead to major wear and tear on the engine is this true or ... should i still get a good sounding openended one ?

    I'm running 100% but I believe you can get a recirc kit.

    I would only want a 50/50 recirc kit, not 100% recirc... I don't see the point of paying 250+ the kit just to make it perform like the stock bov...

    Yeah I know... I meant that a 100% recirc kit would be useless. AFAIK most kits are 100% recirc.

    I'm not sure if the recirc kit is 50 or 100. Seems like is 50 but I'm not positive.

    Kaizen... do you remember seeing them anywhere? I'm getting the HKS. But if it's too loud and I can get a 50/50 kit, then I would do that...

    it seems to be only available as a full bypass. (100%) If you wanted to run that way it would cost you around 12 bucks for the fitting.

    Well the BOV opens and closes when you drive. I think you mean an atmospheric? And no, it does not promote wear and tear at all on your engine. Then again it's just for sound most of the time. It does not help HP.
