    The Introduction

    Hello everyone!

    I'm Rick, I'm from Montana (yes it is a state in the US). I am now the proud owner of a 02' Rexy. She is black, stock, except for wheels, blow-off and catback. I'm actually leaving my native and trusted DSM's for a while, so I hope this goes well.


    Cheers!

    Good man. There are about 4037 threads about BOV's, and they are commonly regarded as doing more harm than good. Search around and I'm sure you'll find a much more detailed explanation.

    There are a lot of good FAQ threads in the different performance forums; they'll make good general reading. For things like the BOV, the search function will be your best friend. Good luck with the bugeye...

    Thanks for the welcome guys! I will be going through the FAQs as time allows, I'm an ex-Rx7 owner, so I know about "Read the FAQS NOOB" Some of them I even put up there.

    Thanks again, and if there's anyone from Montana, drop me a line!

    Welcome Bud ..... btw if you haven't read the many many post yet. The stock BOV can handle up to around 18 - 20 PSI. Don't replace it, as your car is built around your turbo setup.

    Wow, already a few posts on the BOV issue. hehehe

    Just so EVERYONE knows (keeps me from getting flamed) I purchased the car two days ago, and the BOV was already installed. With both my 7 and my DSM, I never touched the "Happy noise" until the stocker wouldn't hold on anymore. So I'm not trying to rice it up I promise. It seems in this case however, that I do have some reverse engineering to do.

    Where at in Montana? There is at least one other member, including me, from Billings-scoobyblack(black sti). I've met several other rex owners in the area but I don't know that any of them hang out online.

    Hey, I didn't notice, but if I was looking to sell non-car stuff, which forum do you guys (if you allow it) to be posted in? ie. xbox360ish stuff....
