    Stock '09 WRXs are not liking intakes for some reason. Lots of people are reporting problems. I'd skip the intake and BOV until the problem is found, otherwise those 2 mods could become quite expensive. It seems to have a very sensitive ECU.

    are you trying to destroy your car as quick as possible?

    1.) BOV is never good on a wrx because you simply cannot tune for it. get a BPV or a 50/50 valve. they make the same noise pretty much without making you run rich

    2.) intake is never good unless you tune your car for it, then an intake will be a nice mod for the 09

    just read up as much as you can on here, and nasioc for all the info you need.

    well correct me if im wrong, and remember that 08+ is a different story than 02-07. an intake without a tune is not a good thing to do to your car.

    Would hardly call an intake better than stock. Was a stock tune. I think it was posted stock except CAI

    Haha true that Im just giving you a hard time. Although I'm still kinda confused about the 3gen intakes cuz 50% say it's great and 50% say it's terrible, worse than previous models so I don't know what to think about it. Perrin says it's terrible but I can't trust someone who's trying to push a product

    What/who is giving you a road tune?

    My vote goes to you using your money for a Cobb Accessport before anything.

    With it ,you can tune(get Maps e mailed) for any future bolt on's.
    My advice, read a lot,investigate a lot, before spending money on an intake or blow off valve.
    (or turbo timer, HID look bulbs,radiator shroud, grounding kit,)

    Aftermarket downpipe/full exhaust, larger top mount,K&N drop in air filter replacement, and a tune with Accessport by an experienced shop (Surgeline Tuning) have netted me a great bump in HP/TQ.(290/315 Mustang Dyno)

    I think brack said it best. I'd rep u if I wasn't posting from my iPhone. How long did your surgeline tune take? I'm waiting on mine right now it's been a week
