    it should have a flange with it and then it bolts on, you reattach the boost line(or whatever hose you took off your stock bpv) then hook the recirc kit back up and your good to go

    I am pretty sure that all that needed(all you subie gurus could prolly tell him better) or put in more info

    you shouldnt have needed to take the intercooler off, it would mount up in the stock location, then the recirc kit that comes with it bolts strait back on as well (or it did on my friends car)

    so i have an 06 wrx and im gathering that removing the siliencer from the car will pretty much do the trick rather than installing a BOV. i test drove a wrx and i guess it had bovs and it sounded like sex. hah. and i would love that sound in my car as well. just making sure i do the right thing. so siliencer removal over a bov? thanks

    the silencer delete will not be as loud as a BOV but it will give you a pshh sound without making your car hate you and blow up

    Another BOV question... I know, I know

    Whazup peeps? got a question and i know it's been posted and posted before but this is my first time doing this forum stuff. So... I just bought a brand new 08 WRX and i'm a first time owner or a subaru. never had a turbo'd car before. Used to have a 2.0 or 2.slow VW golf with only 100 hp if that. So... my question is... i know there's many people saying not to buy a BOV because it's more trouble than good and people only do it for the sound (which i have to say is sexy...) but the stock bypass is good becuase of what it does so what about a partial recirc like the WORX BOV or any other brand. WHY aren't BOV's good for stock and only good for BIGGER turbos?
