    It's ok, all to frequently we have people sign up here that are experts in everything auto-related because they've watched fast and furious, pimp my ride and read the latest sport compact car while sitting in study hall.

    Welcome to the club. Nice looking ride. I like the rims, appearance wise.
    Unless you are seriously pushing your car, the BOV and CAI aren't going to do any immediate harm. Long term, it's hard to say. If you've noticed any idle stumble issues, or stumbling during shifting, then that is the BOV causing an overrich condition. The CAI tends to cancel it out, but the CAI can also cause intermittant lean conditions that over time, can harm your engine.

    Now...the MBC. Take it off before you go boom. Yeah, the extra power is nice, but in a year or 2 (or earlier), you'll thank us for this.

    Some good advice would be to remove the CAI, the BOV, and the MBC and use the money to invest in some EM such as Cobb AP, Utec, or Ecutec. This will give you MUCH more performance than your current setup and will be much safer. Alternatively, get some EM that will support the CAI, and use a BOV that is adustable to make it recirculate 100%. Then if you track it or drag it, you can at least be sure of getting 100% out of the engine.

    If you would rather have the visual/audible eye candy of the BOV and and CAI, and the slight performance increase of the MBC, then hey, it is your car. I support that 100%. We're just trying to help you out here in case you may not have known of some the issues related to these items. Have fun!!

    if you're wondering what your MBC is pushing look at your gauge.

    max it goes to 0.5 bar.
    SO if 1 bat is 14.9 PSI 0.5 must be around 9 or 10 PSI

    I dont have a formula so im just guessing.

    Looks very clean. Love the all silver motif your working with. Not a lot of folks like ths silver mesh in the front, but it looks good with your all around combo. Nice job.
