    I went through the same thinking process and choose the HKS. I've heard both but choose the SSBV. The sound is so mean. My car only has 400 miles on it and it doesn't feel any different. Wierd thing is my friend who helps out the skip barber racing school drove my car after the install and chirped going into second and I'm sure the blow off valve had nothing to do with it but it didn't do before that. As for the sluggish feel I can't say I am experiancing any problem just, I don't listen to the radio anymore because of the cool sound and turing heads every time I shift.

    Try contacting HKS USA to get a replacement. Or you can custom fab something yourself. Until then, keep your stocker on. Good luck.

    I didnt have on the car long enough to really notice It's just too damn loud.

    But like I said before, the HKS on my car, made it feel sluggish, but on another WRX, it feels fine. I dont really know why either.

    where did you buy your forge bov from and how much? i looked at both links and was thinking scoobysport was better. could you let me know how the outcome is? i'm thinking of getting the 100% atmospheric bov. did you get the filler cap? thanks.

    A 100% atmospheric venting BOV will cause the occasional backfire and tends to run the fueling richer than it already is as the ecu compensates for air thats no longer in the system. A hybrid setup that vents a percentage of air back into the intake and the rest atmospheric tends to work best. On standard tune vehicles this is the case.

    this true...however, it does seem that the forge doesn't have the issues that a typical 100% atm bov has...i will let you know if i run into any issues...

    i also have an uppipe and turboback exhaust enroute right now...once i get that installed i will order up an ecutek reflash and make sure that the forge is taken into consideration...

    so i should also see the difference between running the bov pre and post reflash...

    I'm using 2. There is some flutter at low boost but otherwise it sounds great. It sounded much better after I put about 200 miles on it. At first there was a lot of flutter. Now it sounds just abou t perfect.
