Oh and does the Forge BPV really sound like this? ‪Mazdaspeed3 Forge BPV Sound‬‏ - YouTube
This is a discussion on "The BIG BOV thread" (Where all bov question threads get merged) within the Engine Modifications forums, part of the Tech & Modifying & General Repairs category; Oh and does the Forge BPV really sound like this? ‪Mazdaspeed3 Forge BPV Sound‬‏ - YouTube...
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.

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.
02-07 WRX & STI Intake Silencer Delete Elbow: JSC Speed
It's a really easy install.
Or you could just buy an intake that doesn't require a tune.
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...
