    hello and question

    yesterday i went and made a downpayment on an 03 wrx. hopefully ill be picking it up tomorrow once my loan goes through. it has a 3 inch turbo back exhaust, cold air intake, and bov. should be a bit of a step up from the 94 celica i had before lol.
    my question: ive heard that with a cold air intake on a stock tune causes you to run lean. is this true and if so how can i fix it?
    thanks

    you're going to want to get a stock bov and likely a stock intake if you want to keep your new car runni9ng smoothly

    Depends on if it was already tuned. Can you read boost?

    The intake is the main serious concern if it not tuned.

    Your exhaust will do a lot more for your power if it is tuned for.

    what do you mean by can i read boost? and its not already tuned.

    what does the bov do that is bad? i know the intake makes it lean but what about the bov?
