    Hi Im new here

    Hey gang nice to see a subie forum.
    I am buying a white 06 sti the 30th, just waiting for it to arrive.
    I have been doing mods for about 7 years on my toyota.
    Hopefully thisw forum can educate me on future purchases.
    First thing I want to install is a greddy blow-off, any opinions?
    peace

    Well, congratulations on the purchase, you'll fall in love. Search is going to be your best friend in this case. There is lots of useful information you can find. Mostly everyone else asks similar questions in regards to modding and in what order. But not to ignore your question, I do not recommend placing a BOV on a stock car. It is more of the flashy "look at me, im turbo'd" mod. Not beneficial really and might do more bad for your car then good. Anyway, you can use search to find out more opinions on that topic. Good luck with the car and welcome!

    Here are some links I suggest you check out (plenty of info on BOVs):
    The "Good first mods" sticky
    And here's great coverage of FAQs from NASIOC.


    And definitely post pics of your subie when you get her!

    Did you check out the second link I gave you?
    And here's great coverage of FAQs from NASIOC.

    Obviously not. It's the first item in the FAQ's. Here:
    BOV FAQ

    And because I'm so nice:
    Are there any negative effects with aftermarket BOVs? Yes. The downside of releasing the air to atmosphere is that it has already been metered by the mass air sensor, and when it blows off, the ECU will be injecting the wrong amount of fuel into the cylinders. The engine temporarily runs extremely rich, meaning too much fuel is injected into the cylinders.
