    EDIT: To be a bit more useful... you may want to start with the GIANT sticky on the forums regarding BOVs. I believe it's titled, "The giant BOV thread". This has been covered about a million times.

    Have a question about a BOV, my boyfriend gave it to me to see if it would work in my car. It won't work on his EVO. So just wanted to ask you guys to see if it would fit on my Subaru! They part I hook it all up to my subie they are an inch wide. If that makes sense lol

    I am more of a fan of the duck call BOV. Sounds more sophisticated.

    Is it just my imagination or does it suddenly smell like nasty socks in here?

    Brittxo,

    1. It would be easier to buy a used one that fits your make/model.
    2. A BOV may not be good for your engine, suggest you keep researching before you decide to install.
    3. Kudos for posting in the right place and not getting merged

    We recently blanked my BOV to be 100% recirculation, so it functions like a bypass valve, and the shoopster is running better than ever. hope that helps
