    Here is the email I rx-ed from George regarding the spring colour vs tension and the shims.

    "
    Green: soft
    Yellow: medium/soft stiffness
    Blue: medium stiffness
    Red: stiffest.
    The flat discs or shims are just for that. Pre-loading. We've found
    that some of the WRX's respond differently to the new valves. Not sure why, it just seems to be an idiosyncrasy of the brand. Anyhow the shims allow the user to "fine-tune" the spring tension in the event that the spring alone is not working properly. This happens relatively infrequently but enough for us to offer a solution for when it does.

    I don't have any printed material on how to tune and service the
    valves but it's a very easy operation. The top of the valve simply
    twists off. The springs and piston on found underneath. The shims are placed in the top of the piston and then the spring is put back on top of the shims. The top is then screwed back on, the valve re-installed and the user can then test the results. Usually this will take a couple tries but once it's set, it will not need any further adjustment unless the owner makes changes to the car that effect the valve such has increased boost.


    I hope this has answered your questions. Please feel free to
    contact me if you need any more information..

    so nobody recommend the turbo XS? or any other 100% atmospehere venting one? nowwhat about one that may vent competely into the intake rather than 50/50? And is sems that forge is quite popular.
    What other options do i have for 50/50 venting?
    the guy at subaru said something about a Fastbit BOV anyone ever heard of it?

    I have the turboxs RFL and love it! No problems whatsoever! I have to new one. It comes with better washers I guess. I would only reccomend this if your NOT running the stock boost.

    0260B4U--the "fastbits" bov that the dealer mentioned is the GFB hybrid, 50/50 or 100to atmosphere, GFB stands for Go Fast Bits. and i think the stock bov is a 100% recirculating bov, IIRC, really, until you are boosting over 19 or 20 psi, the stock one functions fine, these aftermarket ones are pretty much just for the look/sound

    hm I see, now is GO FAST a compnay in itself or would another site cary the BOV? With all the crap about 100 atmosphere guess i'll go 50/50 since I want the sound and might go with higher boost later on.

    Question Is no BOV noise normal?

    My last turbo car was a 1990 Talon TSi and I loved the loud hiss from the BOV. With my 03 rex I can't hear a damn thing!?! It seems to me that my talon was so much more fun to drive as well, and, maybe it even felt a little bit faster? Maybe this was because it was lower to the ground? What can I do to make the stock BOV louder? Is there something wrong with my head or my car? Please help.

    the stock BOV doesn't vent the air into the atmosphere, so it doesn't give you that pssssst sound. If you remove the intake silencer, you will hear the turbo spool up more and also the BOV will be louder. Costs no $$ and takes 15-20 mins. If you would like that nice psssst, there are plenty of aftermarket BOV's available. Just do a search, there's tons of info on this site.
