    Its as sorted out as its going to be, it drives fine and pulls hard, just can't clear the cel. I'm thinking the reflash will take care of that. I'll bring you your stuff on thursday.

    Carrman- congratz on the new purchase, did you pick up the wagon that was at Ashland motors? Any mods, or mod plans?

    Yeah it's the one from Ashland Motor Company. Great place to buy a car. Already has a short shift kit, and a BOV. Not sure what mods I will do yet, as I need to learn more about what works and what doesn't. I do have a set of Morettes coming that will be here Friday though....;-)

    Maybe we could shoot for next weekend (not this coming weekend, but the first weekend in November) if the weather holds out.

    I just signed up on this site. I'm in Chico, CA, but visit my folks occasionally in Medford. I also run some autocrosses at the sports park in White City.

    I have a '04 STi, silver with golds, some wicked gay Hoosier stickers on it, and a Honda ricer sounding exhaust thanks to the headers.

    I'll probably be up for the turkey-day weekend, anything going on then?

    Probably cuz it's been down forever. They must have it hosted somewhere in Hurricaneville.

    Speaking of hosting... I was talking to Rich about setting up a Rogue Subies website with our own domain, and getting off the Yahoo wagon. Does anyone else think we should do that, or do you all prefer just posting in this ginormous thread here?

    Aftermarket BOV vent 100% or 50% to atmosphere vs. stock bov which is 100% recirc, this messes with your A/F ratios and with stock engine management causes you to run rich between shifts.

    Basically, unless you are pushing 18-20psi (past the limit of the stock bov to hold that much pressure) your not gaining any performance by having an aftermarket bov, and if you don't have a catless up-pipe you can be flooding your 1st cat with fuel, causing it to weaken and possibly break up and shoot parts into your turbo. I'm sure wade will be much more articulate and accurate in his description as to why BOV's are bad, but that's just my late night 2cp
