    Garrett didn't post asking opinions of how his car looked, you did. When you ask for opinions, you may get some criticism.

    Welcome to the site!
    Sounds like you would benefit from visiting our Engine Modifications forum and looking through the stickies at the top, which are educational about what you are asking.

    A word of benign advice:
    You are, of course, entitled to communicate as you please, but you will get a friendlier reception if you make an attempt at grammar.

    Im done arguing wheels vs rims. A stock BPV returns the already metered air to the intake. A BOV puts it out into the atmosphere causing you to run rich between shifts. Rich = not as good as perfect AFR. To do a bigger turbo a lot must be done at the same tune. Fuel pump, injectors, bigger intercooler, tune, and if you go too big or don't drive properly a new tranny and motor. Do your research and you will be fine. Do it the "Easy" way and you will be back here asking if its better to rebuild a motor/tranny or buy a new one.

    A "stroker engine" would increase your displacement, not leave you at 2.0

    I just told you why BPV is better. BOV makes you run rich between shifts and can leak causing engine issues. When the car quits shifting or even engaging a gear is a good sign. And like others said, 2.0 stroker doesn't make sense. This sounds more and more like whoever sold you this just threw random **** at you until you thought it sounded good again and put money down. You need to start from the ground up and know EVERYTHING that is done to this car before you modify it at all

    you should get a stock bypass valve used for $30-50 bucks. If the recirculating hose that takes the air back to the turbo inlet is not still there you need to replace it. Chances are it is still there and just plugged, if thats the case take out the plug and attach it to the elbow on the stock bypass valve. Replace the gasket (subaru dealer) and tighten it down to proper torque specs.

    I'll argue wheels and rims.
    "Three piece" wheels consist of hub, spoke, and rim. When those three "pieces" come together a "wheel" is made. The rim is the outer part of the wheel that the tire mounts to. If you only had "rims" your car would pancake them when lowered off the lift. And if you don't believe me, maybe you'll believe the professionals.
