    The vividracing.com is right. It has pretty cool sounds that's according to me and vividracing.com but each person have assorted tastes.

    Vivid Racing has been known for poor customer service, poor parts (they rip off other brands) and there are some stories on here of Vivid Racing ripping people off pretty bad.

    what BOV should I get for my 2003 WRX. I have heard the Greddy RS is a good one but I am not sure. Any suggestions?

    What mods do you have...stock is usually the best. I have a Perrin recirc valve....blow off type valves really do no good! Check out the subaru link in my signature and research the blow off valve topic!

    why can't #$%! people read and do a little leg-work of their own? All it takes is about 5 minutes reading time and repetitive questions can be avoided..

    sheesh..

    Ok, I've done a great deal of searching and have even checked other forums. Where can I find my 08' WRX's stock boost pressure? I discovered through "Nasioc" that my stock turbo is a (2008+ STI VF-48).

    This question doesn't really belong here, but here's the stock boost map:

    I do agree. I think it's kind of sad how this is one of the biggest threads on this forum, and it's just the same old tired questions every page. I vote for new thread with all good compiled info.


    Look, even Mikie thinks it should go, and you all know how much influence he has on this forum.

    No need to start a new one it would just turn into the same thing. There is BOV FAQ's/Sticky in this same forum and that is more than plenty.
