    TUNE TUNE TUNE

    with that aftermarket DP (which I assume you have with the disappearance of your heatshield)

    you need a tune

    AND take off the BOV and get a stock BPV (Bypass Valve)

    Man I really want a BOV or should I say Show off valve...but Im being good and keeping the stock BPV

    why should i take off the bov?

    and would i be good buying an access port and loading the stage 2 on it? the shops here require myown accessport and if i have to buy that i could go ahead and load the stage 2 on there and then save for a pro tune later

    As I said before, you can get more $$ for the HKS than you would spend for the OEM BPV. While a recirculating valve (OEM) would be better than aftermarket (HKS), you don't really need to do so, as long as the BOV is set up correctly.

    If you do not have a tune setup for the removal of catalytic converters (aftermarket DP), you really need to get one. I'd skip the AP altogether and go with a custom OpenECU tune. Call local shops and see if they tune open-source.

    shops there only tune accessports? where on earth are you living. But seriously look around for a shop that does OpenECU, its a much better option for you at this point(cheaper one at that). As For the BOV, There is a big BOV hater community within the subie community, though it is a fact that it will run slighty rich as metered air is being let out of the system, its not going to cause your engine to explode instantly or anything like that.

    i was told that the main tuner shop in town would only use a AP so i have to wait till tomorrow to call them. maybe be a few days.

    im thinking i might try to find someone here with a AP for my car already and see if i cant get them to upload a stage 2 onto it for now.

    im assuming the subi shop that fixed it for the dealership reloaded the ecu to factory. i wish there was some way to tell just by driving or looking at it.

    I'm sure if they tune more than just subarus they will be able to do OpenECU. And the AP thing is not possible as IIRC it reflashes the car to stock if you unmarry it from the vehicle. (this is just my assumption i've never owned an AP but seems like the sort of thing a smart business would make their product do)
