    Launching Techniques? and How it fairs against competition?

    Anyone can give me any launching techniques w/o destroying my '06 STi (spt exhaust, greddy blow-off valve, 5ziggin rims, and seibon carbon fiber hood). Secondly, how would i fair against an Srt-4 and a nissan 350z, and evo? thanks a million for helping this new-b out..hahahaha

    The way i do it which is not alot is i give it about 4 to 5000 rpms then let out the clutch not drop it just let it out pretty fast, and for racing a 350z u would beat it, srt4 you would beat it but the Evo would probably beat you in the long run, ive never raced and evo, i have raced the other 2. anyways hope that helps

    You could run with a stock Evo. BTW, lose the BOV.
    06 GTO M6 Quicksilver, SLP 455 Bobcat, LS7 Clutch w/ SS line (RPM tune:373rwhp/373rwtq)
    07 WRX TR M5 Garnet Red Pearl w/ Straight PPGs and Cusco front LSD (Agile tune:307whp/343wtq)

    I was gonna say it as well. BOV are for ricers and SRT-4 drivers. The only sound people should be hearing is the rumble of your boxer engine.

    Plus, it's easier to beat an Evo 8 than a 9. If you're referencing running them stock.

    i think my way of saying it is much more clever. i was gonna go with:

    your already well on your way to destroying it with that BOV.

    but i took too long. also all launching is bad for your car. pretty significantly bad. but if you had to pick i would go with slipping the clutch from a pretty low RPM.

    And don't launch your car. Its not a drag car. Go buy a '86 5.0 mustang and put $2k into it and launch that. Leave the STi alone.

    LOL, i'm in love with that sound. Are u guys trying to imply that my car can go relatively faster if i lose the BOV? I don't launch the thing on a regular basis nor do i use it as a daily driver..more of weekend car.. a little experimenting wouldn't hurt...? Give me 4 good reasons why i should lose the BOV and keep it stock? Lastly, i was thinking of getting a downpipe..Give me some pros and cons about this...I hear if u were to get one installed, the check engine light would come on? what's the word on that..THANKS FOR EVERYONE THAT HAS REPLIED TO THIS POST...I APPRECIATE EVERYONES HONEST FEEDBACK...

    I think we should get mythbusters in on this.

    1. lose power - MYTH BUSTED
    2. ruin engine- MYTH BUSTED
    3. negatively affect drivability - TRUTH

    seriously you guys should do a little research before just regurgitating misinformation

    Exactly-- definitely read if you are thinking of buying one.

    That FAQ doesn't say anything about blowing motors or losing power with a bov.

    Thanks for the great information. Judging from what i read, it seems logical to remove the BOV and install the stock one back on. But yea, what about a downpipe? I'm thinking of installing one. Give me the pros and cons about that.Thanks guys!

    The "myth" of loosing power to a blow off valve is not false per say. When it releases pressure between gears your beautiful turbo has to spool back up. That action is a loss of power for a short amount of time. Keeping your forced induction forcing induction is better then hearing a bus drive by.
