    my suggestion, give your car some cold medication and dont make it sneeze (obnoxiously loud that is) i dont get why people need to make sure everyone and there mother needs to hear that there car is forced induction, if they are bumb enough not to know then they dont care

    Skip the BOV and go with the Silencer Removal mod

    Exclamation need help

    I recently put on a apc bov on a few days ago. My car is standard wrx stock.

    When the car is idling, the revs move up and down than it comes back to normal 700rpm . I checked the bov to see if there is a gap in the cylinder (piston) they is a bit of a gap to leak air to make the noise. They is a adjustable screw which i tightened it up to close the gap than it idles worse moves up and down.

    Than i opened it up a bit leaving a 2mm gap. When its idiling (car is still) the revs move down when i accelerate than it comes back to normal.

    Any suggestions, will this damage my engine?

    thankyou for u reply
