get the uppipe first.

the BOV is asking for problems. you'll have much better turbo sound w/ the uppipe, and it'll give you less turbo lag (boost 500 rpms sooner), and about 10 hp.

plue, you'll be lowering EGTs, which is the first thing you need to do on the WRX

yes.. sell the car... you dont deserve it..

heh but with all sarcaism aside..

bov doesnt do anything for your car except make noises... and if you are a crappy driver who likes to let off the acceleration pedal over and over .. other people will hear that you suck at driving...

with 500 to spend.. why not just make 100 more and get an accessport...

99.9% of the people on this board will say that accessport will be your greatest 1st mod.. or atleast a hell of a lot better mod than a bov..

Dont do a BOV just remove the stock silencer and do the up pie like said...Spend your money wisely and not pointless things like a bov.

Attain knowledge by surfing the forums and asking questions.

Buy a gutted O.E.M upipe (Around $75)....

Then go on E-Bay and buy the electronic simulated B.O.V..

Prob solved;)
