    I believe I bought it from Import Image Racing.. and no, it sounds nothing like that. My car doesn't really build boost unless I'm actually driving somewhere, revving in the parking lot doesn't cut it. The sound is much louder when you're at 24psi than 10psi. Volume is totally boost pressure dependent.




    My mods can be found in my COTM show off thread. http://www.clubwrx.net/forums/member...ry-2011-a.html

    so from reading the first few pages, getting an after market VTA is no good, so just keep the stock BPV? Also i just like hearing the sound of it, nothing to loud but i would like a nice exhale sound, which after market VTA would be best, this is for an 02 wrx. Also is it a hard install, noobie to this

    O HELLA JDM, You are right VTA BOV's are not good for Subaru engines. If you are looking for more sound then I suggest looking at the Silencer Delete. It's an inhale noise, but it seems to help people with BOV envy.

    It's a really easy install.

    A decent free flowing intake goes a long way to hearing your stock BPV. I didn't hear mine until I put an intake on my car.

    That would work too.
    Cobb and SPT intakes do not require a tune. Perrin, Injen, and no name brand intakes require a tune for the car to run properly.

    The silencer itself is part of the stock intake system, and aftermarket intakes don't come with a silencer.. so, no.

    So read on the link, it recommends getting a drop in filter. Which one should I get? Because I read on another tread if u get an intake u would need to get a tune or something? Thanks everyone for helping

    K&N and Perrin make panel filters for the WRX (there are others). These filters increase air flow, and do not screw with the MAF. However, they do not make the intake or BPV louder.

    Or you could just buy an intake that doesn't require a tune.

    Sounds to me like you should just drop it and leave the car stock, might as well have the dealer service it too.

    Hey guys, I have a 2011 WRX and went to do the Silencer Delete this morning... turns out the 2011's don't have one! I looked up all kinds of walk-through's and not a single one said anything about the 11's not having the silencer. I am also sort of craving the "whoosh" sound, but with the possibility of the delete what else can be done? Just an intake I guess? How bad would an HKS BoV be for the car? Seems odd they make them if they could potentially do some damage...
