    Why do you need a BOV?

    Get a 3" Downpipe, and try to get your hands on a stock BPV.

    Get a downpipe with whatever type of flange you have on your catback - if you have a 3" flat flange, get a 3" flat flange downpipe; if you have a 2.5" donut flange, get a downpipe that tapers to 2.5" donut.

    The HKS SSQV is not a good BOV. It VTA (Vents To Atmosphere)
    which is bad. Trust me on this just buy the stock BPV. Getting a aftermarket BOV will just make your car run very lean and rich. Cause idle problems, etc. etc.

    It either runs lean or rich - take your pick

    There should be no "idle problems" if the valve is setup properly and isn't leaking - if you're not under boost, the valve is closed.

    Any rich condition is minimal (~9.5:1), very short in duration (1-2 rows in a datalog), and only between shifts when in boost.




    As for the HKS SSQV - there are better valves on the market (e.g., Tial / APS).

    Personally, I'd run the stock valve, though.

    It's not going to run "very rich and very lean" when you shift. It can bog the car though for a split second and it just won't run as smoothly. The problem with the SSQV is that HKS did a shoddy job when they designed them and they tend to leak. And leaks are what cause a bad idle.
