    Misiek's 2002 VF39'ed WRX

    Hey I made a small video on my car. This weekend I'm rebuilding the motor and putting in a few new parts including a EWG Uppipe 38mm. Tell me what you think.

    Also if you listen at 15 seconds you can hear the turbo screaming. Sounds like a missile passing the camera.

    Yes that was my daily tune I was running. 18.1 PSI. I put alot of effort into making the exhaust note just right and hopefully a bit unique. Everything from the turbo noise, to BOV, to just exhaust note. So any feedback on that would really mean alot too

    Please link to the video (not embed it), since you decided to use an expletive in the title. Also, please indicate the video is NWS for language used in the video.

    Well a vent to atmosphere BOV is a no go on a Subie, unless your pushing a monster Garrett with a FMIC.

    No matter. The AP can show a 1psi difference on your boost. I guess you may be closer to 19psi. The VF39 and VF43 can run reliably at 21 to 22 psi with a proper protune.

    Your car sounds sweet.

    Is the BOV I have a problem like something I should be concerned about?

    Thanks for doing the first part, but you missed the second part of the request.

    As long as the valve is a quality one that is properly setup, adjusted, and maintained, it's not really anything to worry about.

    At best they do nothing for performance on this setup, at worst they rob power...
