    hey guys.

    my experience.

    I always wanted to put a bov for the noise and acutally I did put it on.

    Everyone said dont put it on but i didn't listen to no one coz i just wanted that noise..

    Afterall I took it off, its not good for the wrx. now i have standard factory one wid no noise lol.

    Wid bov it looses power, my idling spped was going up and down..

    overal it doesn't worth it for standard factory turbos.

    2008 WRX BOV installed.

    So, the custom flange for my Greddy BOV was finally cut and delevered to the local performance shop yesterday. Today it was drilled, tapped, and the BOV was mounted. Then at lunch i went and put it on my car

    So far it works ok and it will be able to hold more boost than the stock BPV. The reason i put on a BOV right now is because i had this aftermarket one just sitting around collecting dust. Supporting mods are always good too.

    I took pictures with my phone and will post them after i get off of work.

    cost of flange = $40
    cost of Greddy Type RS = $0


    p.s. It doesn't vent into the atmosphere. Recirculated.

    you sure you had it connected correctly? sounds like you were getting mad leakage, if the rpms flutter like that.

    that's not how it works.. well, sorta.. At idle, you want it closed, so you tighten the spring. Then, when high intake pressures are present at the piston, and you introduce vacuum at the back of the diaphram, then the piston is to open allowing for the 'gud noise' to go into the atmosphere.

    i have a greddy type s as well just sitting here, and im also thinking of getting it installed on my STI (mods is only an open downpipe).

    i already talked to a shop about a custom flange.

    one question, do you have that greddy BOV recirc or VTA?
