    Fair enough. I know that some people have patched mismatched injectors with MAFv adjustments, which will change all other IPW compensations.

    However, changing JUST the intake maybe not so much a challenge.

    If the tune is verified BEFORE intake install, and the intake is a known good brand, and then the MAF v is adjusted after... Then, I'd agree with you. Just not the way most people work unfortunately.

    BOV tuning on stock car?

    My car only has the invidia N1 Catback exhaust, it has no tune. Can I add a bov and keep it tuneless still?

    yes

    but the stock bov is perfectly fine and doesnt need changing out, a good use of your money would be handling/braking upgrades such as sway bars, endlinks, SS lines, brake pads.

    if you really want the pshh sound save up for an intake, downpipe and a good tune.

    you want to look for a full recirc valve if you do want to change it out to get a little more pshh. stay away from Vent to atmosphere. ive ran the turbo xs 50/50 b.o.v. before with no problems but they are prone to leaking air which would be considered a boost leak.

    Orrrrr why don't you try Fat Burger from now on? You can get yourself a cheese and fries for 2.95, ******

    but i assume you like the tuna here.

    You can. I'd rather see you do a short ram intake though. It'll give you the sound of the blow off valve, the sound of the spool up, and a little more power. A blow off valve will just give you the pshhh and it might make you run poorly. Look at my BOV faq to get you some basic info on BOVs.

    Running the old Greddy Type-S recirc on a Cobb intake......no need to go 50/50.....plenty of noise....giggling chipmunk under low boost and fully loud PSSSHHHHTT at 16 psi. $30 adapter and pulling **** off the old parts shelf worked perfectly.

    Holds boost much better with quicker response over the stocker. I would definitely upgrade stock valves as a primary upgrade.
