    The guy was asking 8,200 but i was able to walk away with it for only 7,800. Pretty good for SD prices.

    Other than the Apline Deck and speakers its completely stock. My only plans are to make it sound good, so BOV and exhaust, maybe headers. Its hard to find info on this forum considering the BOV thread is 700 pages long and 90% of it is spam, flaming, and unanswered questions. So if any one could point me in the right direction of BOV that would be nice.

    The very first post on the first thread that comes up when you type in "blow off valve" in the search bar will clear it all up for you

    I'll point you in the right direction... away from the BOV. The general consensus is that a BOV system will do more harm than good at stockish power levels. Your stock BPV is functional to well over 20 PSI. WRXs are MAF-metered, so a VTA (vent to atmosphere) BOV is leaking metered air into the atmosphere. This causes the car to run rich and bog between shifts. If you want the sound, my suggestion is to perform the "elbow silencer delete mod" (also called "snorkus delete mod") that removes the intake silencer and allows you to hear the stock BPV through the intake tract.
