    What is the deal with BPV/BOV

    Hey guys im new to the forced induction side of the world. I saw on COBB's website that they sell a bypass valve, what is a bypass valve/what does it do? is it worth it? Also would a atmospheric BOV be ok to put on to my 2010 WRX? I have heard that the WRX is set up to use recirculating BOV? So if you guys could help me figure this stuff out i would be thankful.

    Save your money and stay with the stock valve. You wont need an aftermarket one until you reach very very high hp levels.

    I think you should get a BOV because then you'll be posting back with all these problems and keeping all of us entertained.....
