    Picked up a delete for about 10 bucks, removed the atmospheric trumpet and blanked the port.
    And did a bunch of other stuff (pics), but yeah the shoop's good to go

    So I just ordered a forged recirc valve for my car....

    The PERRIN valve is loose where it attaches to the flange that attaches to the tmic...it has been for awhile and I tried to fix it but I don't like it anymore...plus the splitter hits it when I close the hood...

    Forge is a good unit. You will like it.

    FYI...I ordered your shift knob, but got the aluminum version. So amped for this thing.

    Question about blow off valve

    Hi, I recently was thinking about installing a blowoff valve on my 2012 wrx, but then read why it should'nt be done, dude to the location of the mass airflow sensor.

    So I was wondering, what can I do so i could install this product, and have the engine run fine?
    Thanks.

    Speed density tune will resolve your need for a recirculating valve, since you no longer have a MAF sensor.

    I purchased Go Fast Bits TMS Respons Hybrid Blow Off Valve. I have it at about 20% open. It makes enough noise to sound good, yet car runs fantastic. I noticed about a 2mpg increase when I installed as well. Could have been the car breaking in but it was literally a 2mpg increase.
