    Just to clarify is this a non turbo impreza or a turbo wrx impreza?

    If it's turbod do you have a full exhaust or catback?

    Are you sure you don't have an aftermarket intake or blow off valve? Is your intake silencer in tact? (it might be easier to post up a picture of your engine bay lol)

    Does the car feel sluggish or anything?

    thats definitely the OEM BOV. can you take a picture of the whole bay? i just wanted to see if you have an intake/intake silencer delete because that will cause a flutter/whooshing sound.


    here's what it might look like. this is an aftermarket intake with no silencer.

    Does it happen only under wide open throttle, or any time you press the gas?
