  1. Engine Modifications
    Hey guys, new here and new to wrx ownership. Just got a ‘14 all stock, no mods yet. My list is long but one of the things I cannot find any answer to is the existence of a BPV SPACER. I have read multiple articles discussing such a device. From what I understand it is an additional plate or...
  2. Tuning: Electronic Engine Management
    Is it possible to get a block off plate on my 2008 wrx tmic, the people who had tuned my car had said not to change the blow off valve unless its another hybrid bov. I just really loved the turbo flutter that I had before I had my tune and I want to make sure that it would be safe to get a block...
  3. Interior Mods
    Stock 08 wrx hatch. Pretty sure I have a leak in the oem gasket for the oe plastic by-pass valve and the car has pretty high mileage with a few light mods to come so I figured I would just upgrade the whole unit. What's your opinion on the Cobb bpv vs. the Go Fast Bits hybrid bpv/bov. Neither...

    I have a HKS SSQ blow-off valve that came off my 06 wrx. Not sure of the mileage on the part, as it was on when I bought the car. It was working fine before removed, I just went back to the stock bypass valve. It also comes with the plug to cap off the return hose going back to the turbo. I...

  8. Engine Modifications
    So I've chosen not to go with an aftermarket bov due to all the flaming towards them causing problems. My simple question is...is there anyway to make the stock bpv vent to the atmosphere to get the cool sound? (Yes...I'm a sucker for that whooosh sound) any help appreciated :wiggles:

    Heres the deal guys, I need to pass emissions next week with my 2002 WRX and my CEL won't go off after trying many things. Im pulling up code P0102 for low voltage to MAF.
