    Ah. Well in that case, as I said earlier:

    Is my Greddy Type-S BOV recirculating?

    Check out the attached pic...

    I wasn't the one that did this install - it was the previous owner. So I don't have any of the extra parts that came with the BOV kit nor the instructions.

    If it isn't recirculating does anyone know where I can find a Type-S recirculating kit? I've googled and haven't come up with much - I keep finding the RS recirculating kit instead.

    Thanks for your help.

    you could try a snorkel delete, different drop in filter (like k&n), or an appropriately sized cai, like what spt or cobb makes. it wont make the phssss sound, but youll definately hear your turbo spooling up, which is just as cool.

    or you can buy a recirculating aftermarket bpv, like aps. youll hear it a little bit better, but it will never be the same as a vent to atmosphere

    Recirculating BOV

    Is a recirculating BOV worse than the atmospheric BOV?

    leave it stock.
    ESPECIALLY if it's an 08. Not trying to be mean, but if you have an 08, and you're asking these types of questions:

    1. You NEED your warranty to stay valid
    2. You have NOT read this thread

    A BOV isn't "stepping it up"..
    stg2 is. exhaust, ecu remap (if avail), etc..
    Leave the BPV alone.

    Either way, you'll kill the warranty, bottom line..

    I talked to my brother he owns a Mitsubishi Evo 8, and he said best thing to do is go with intake, exhaust, then chip it other than spending on the Blow out valve. Is that a good deal?

    get an SPT short ram intake and a Catless uppipe and a turbo back exhaust and engine management like the Cobb AP

    +1, but without the uppipe if the stock uppipes on the '08s are catless.
