    If it's a great deal then buy it and re-sell it. Don't install it on your car because the stock BPV performs better than that BOV will.

    FNG here and i need some help. I just bought an 03 wrx and it has a Greddy rs bov that vents to atm. I wanna run it recirculating but can only find the 32mm fitting. I can't find the tube anywhere that comes in the recirculating kit. Anyone know how I can make one or i can make one out of, anyone selling one, or know where I find one? Help is much appreciated.

    Have you tried the dealership? unless you're running a high boost application, stock BPV assembly will work just fine for you. I would also check the classifieds here and other sites. There's always someone making the same mistake as the previous owner of your car did and they'll sell the stock unit

    It would still be the same scenario as the past 745 pages. Subarus are "metered air" systems, unlike alot of other manufacturers, where they may be Speed Density.

    Your link is Chinese, and I don't read it.

    Answering your question: Is it possible? Yes, it is possible to easily install an HKS bov on your car. Just not with the one pictured in your link.
    It would take modifications to work/replace your stock BPV.

    Just because you "can" install a BOV on your car, doesn't mean you "should"... This thread is almost 750 pages long, and 99% of it is about why you should NOT, or when you SHOULD/COULD..


    RTFM.

    Well, what will I have to do in order to actually hear the blow off?


    RTFM.
