    I agree if you do not need a BOV because you are not making enough boost dont bother on getting one. However if you are looking into getting one because you do make enough boost, make sure you choose a good quality BOV.

    BOV Quickie

    I'm either purchasing a Greddy S or a HKS BOV and just for sh*t's and giggles decided to vent my stock bypass today to see how it would run before I ordered either of them. The car runs alright, but rich and wants to stall at lights. Will this still happen with the Greddy or HKS unit? This is most likely because the stock bypass valve is open at idle right??? But the other units should not do this correct?

    Okay......you have a whole thread of info on BOV's that you just posted in.That being said the stock BPV is open at idle.As far as what you buy depends on if you bought it used what adjustments were made to it and if you bought it new what the preadjustment was set too..........................this thread needs to die.

    Seriously,this thread should just be turned in to a BOV F.A.Q. or something.It has basiclly become 257 pages of the same questions being asked over,and over,and over,and over........nobody is going to go back and read through 257 pages to find their answers at this point.

    everything you need comes with the bov. i highly reccomend you do not get and atmospheric bov and get a reccircualting bov like the stock one ex. perrins reccirculating bov

    Have you already performed due diligence and have decided to go with a BOV? Or are you still under the impression that this is a worthwhile mod for the money?

    To answer your question, I would confirm that everything you need is included with the specific product you plan to purchase.

    you DO NOT WANT an atmospheric bov. you want a reccircualting one and im pretty sure that the txs is reccircualting if not i know that perrin makes one.

    also are you tuned? if not maybe you should forget about the bov and get a tune first a bov is not neccesary untill you making a decent amount of hps stock is fine for your set up.

    now i have a txs rfl on my car and its an atmosphere vent. i still have my stock bov, should i put the stock back on? the other one that i got is gfb deceptor, you can set it up 50/50, 100% atmophere vent or 100% recirculate.

    no, my car is not tuned yet. if i want to get it tuned how much am i looking to spend? do you know a place that i can go? i live in northern NJ.

    it needs to be 100% reccirculate so either put the stock back on and sell the other 2 or put the gfb one on.

    theres 2 good shops to go to in jersey.

    1. presicion tunning in lakewood. they have a great bunch of guys working there. rich is the man anything you have a problem with hell help you out. im almost positive its 400$ for a tune here

    2. turbo trix racing in edison. mainly know for evo's but they do work on subarus. i think its 500$ for your first tune but every time you go back its only 150-200 i cant remeber i havent been there in a while.

    heres there websites
