    HKS BOV recirculation

    When i was younger and uneducated on WRX's or mods in general i picked up the HKS SSQV BOV.
    Stupid move now that i know but i was wondering if anyone has used the recirculation kit for it to get out of the atmospheric nature of it.
    Does it work as advertised?
    Sorry for starting another BOV thread=(

    the video is saying the rattle snake one is bad because it causes turbo surge

    or compressor surge...
    means it doesn't get activated at a low enough PSI and the back-pressure is causing the turbo to spin in reverse.

    oh gotcha...but if he simply does a search his questions would probably be answered

    and everyone knows that if you are using a BOV untuned that youre gonna run rich. thats BOV 101 right there.

    i think you should not buy a mod unless you know what it does and what its pros / cons are. read up before you purchase
