    A BOV will cause your shifts to be rich. You can't tune this out. It causes a temporary condition between shifts that causes an excess of fuel to be injected into the cylinder. This can ruin your catalytic converter in a matter of months (VERY Costly!), and cause cylinder wash. Cylinder wash is where the fuel washes the oil off the inside of the cylinder. This gets rid of some of your lubricant, and increases friction in the cylinders, which is obviously a pretty big deal! Also, this causes a hesitation, which in turn actually hurts performance.



    What I just said above. 3" Turboback Exhaust, and a Used Cobb AccessPORT

    Oh ok, thanks! So that means I can't use any BOV? What if I eliminate the catalytic?

    Don't use a BOV. If you want the sound of a BOV, without having the negative issues... then buy either a K&N Short Ram Intake, or a SPT Short Ram Intake.

    It's fine. But seriously, you need to read some of the FAQs

    Unabomber's Manifesto on NASIOC...click below:

    These are should answer most, if not ALL of your questions.

    What you need to answer for yourself is, what are you planning on using your car for? Mod your car according to what you want to do with it.

    Like Sinister said, the WRX is like no other car. So if you're working on a budget, then I think you shouldn't mod your car at all. The WRX with OEM parts outrank plenty of other cars out there. Like the brochure says in the subaru dealerships, "...The WRX is in a class of it's own". But that's just my opinion.
