    You can try searching under "FMIC" and a huge list of threads should come up along with all the brands that make the fmic for the wrx.

    you don't need names for a search.

    search for:
    BOV
    FMIC
    and your probably thinking of this also: cold air intake.

    this might help explain why you aren't getting a lot of feedback on your questions. they have been discussed billions of times.

    btw, congrats on your rex...now mod it right (uppipe/downpipe)

    Take this from someone that learned the hard way & waisted money doing so.

    NO on intake

    NO on BOV (unless you just want the pssshhhhhhhh)

    YES on catless uppipe

    YES on downpipe or turbo back exhaust

    YES on eng mgnt. ie, Accessport, UTECH, Ecutec............

    My first mods were a intake & a BOV & now I don't have either one of them. I sold them for more usefull mods.

    don't worry about upgraded intercoolers and bovs until you have a higher level of mods.

    start with uppipe, downpipe, and a utec.

    read the enginer performance FAQ at the top toe the engine performance forum.
