    ok so i never had a stock BPV b/c i bought the car with a greddy type-rs bov..... it blew and ran me rich so i swaped for a APS 50/50 which i love ....had to buy a elbow and a recirc tube but it was well worth it!!!! still have some of the sound but with out the richness....

    if you want the swoosh sound get an short ram intake!!!!!

    dude look at ur BPV and to the bottom left of it theres an elbow...that elbow connects to a black hose and that hose connects to the turbo inlet.....a recirculating adaptor is pretty much that....with most aftermarket bpvs you can attach the elbow with hose to it.....then it recirulates....mine is 50/50 which means under high boost it will vent back to the turbo inlet and also let some air out....but under low boost..it will only recirc it....

    Recirculating attachments do just that. The BOV lets off excess boost (air), so the adapter "recirculates" that air that is released during shifts, back into the intake track before the turbo. And like VCustoms above me said, is what that black rubber tube coming off the stock BPV does: Recircs the air back to the intake.

    This is necessary for our cars and is the main reason why aftermarket vent-to-air BOVs "cause trouble" for WRXs/STIs. The MAF attached to the intake (stock air box, or whatever SRI or CAI intake you have) reads air coming into the engine. That is then added to the predetermined amount of air compensated for by the ECU that should be thrown to the intake from the recirculating valve. But with an BOV, that excess boost now goes to the air, but the ECU is still trying to compensate for it being in the air being taken in even though its not there...so it adds more fuel to the mixture, hence the running rich condition created by BOVs during shifting.

    haha...you wouldn't believe how much I hear that and I've been here since I was 3. Well, I just moved out 2 weeks ago to Philly.

    But its about 15-20 minutes south of Trenton, exit 6 off the turnpike.

    Where you at in North Jersey? I went to William Paterson University, so I know up there very well.

    Name game time...who was it? I also know a chick that went there, but I'm 25 and graduated almost 2 years ago.

    Haha...nice. I played soccer at the Armory there for a couple years. Good times.

    I also happen to hate that city with a passion. My sophomore year of college, my Acura Integra got stolen out of the Willy P parking lot (brick through the window) and was recovered 2 days later in an abandoned lot somewhere in West Orange...haha. It was totaled
