    dont waste your time or money on a BOV. not going to help you in any way except attract the wrong kind of attention.

    most mods for the 2008s are still a little down the road. cobb has a front sway bar but that is really the only thing I have found for the 2008s.

    make sure to introduce yourself in the new members section.

    where are you and your new 08 WRX at? first subie? previous vehicle?

    actually in pittsburgh of one of the outlaying areas? I grew up about 30 miles south in Belle Vernon. Worked in Pleasant Hills at a Toyota dealership for a few years while in school. my family still all lives in the western PA area - mostly the Mon Valley area.

    I dont know how they react with the new ones, but if they react to a BOV like the old ones, your car actually runs a little worse with a BOV on the stock setup - at least in the WRX models.

    Cobb wont have the accessport out for at least a little while so some of the good power mods are on hold for a little while and I imagine that suspension things will be the first to surface and would probably do better with the bigger vehicle that the new WRX is.

    IMO, look into suspension things first. then the power stuff should start to come out.

    I think the subaru short throw is available already, but have not seen anything in the way of a full catback system from SOA or aftermarket.

    You might be able to find the aftermarket mufflers that some of the legacy GT guys use and have a custom catback made that would good.

    Your not driving an SRT-4 any more. Subarus don't rock BOV's intell they are absolutly nessisary. This is because the rich rich in between shifts due to the MAF sensor which is different than the MAP sensor in the SRT-4

    wow dude learn to english. If you didn't understand that...

    w/ a BOV you'll run rich between shifts. But, ray's lible to close any thread that has the letters B O and V together in them. ;-) so I'll bow out now and just say welcome aboard!

    I don't close them, I just merge them into TR's superthread.
    I wouldn't do that to a new member's introduction thread, though. Wouldn't be polite....

    a timeout is like a temporary ban that not-ewrex gets like 5 times a day.
