    Blow Off Valve upgrade

    So i have an 02 wrx and i was just wondering what i have to do to put on an after market bov because the one i put on was hitting the intake manifold because the adapter i bought extended to far for the bov.

    I was also thinking its because i still have a top mount intercooler not the front mount. could this make a difference? Is there a special bov i need, or can anyone recommend a bov with a good fit?

    Adapter? Sounds like you already have an aftermarket one.

    yea sounds like if you needed an adapter then you already have an aftermarket one. I have a greddy type Rs and the fitment is a little tight but it fits.

    i do have an after market one but i think its just a knock off. so the greddy rs is pretty legit?

    only thing is if you get it dont use the blue silicone hose they give you. It gets brittle and breaks off after a couple months just found that out last weekend. So go get yourself some good hose for that part of it.
