    New member question

    I have a question about tuning as far as installing a hybrid BOV and a K&N short ram intake 69-8001ts. Is it necessary to tune the wrx for these mods or is it not?

    It will decrease the performance of your car. So let's recap:

    1.) you pay $200 for the intake, $200 for the BOV
    2.) your car performs worse

    So, in conclusion, you have paid $400 to make your car worse.

    Unless you are running a blow-through MAF setup, you cannot "tune" for a BOV

    There is no tuning available for the valve. The intake should include some remapping of the MAF tables.
