before you spend the money on a BOV run a search about them on this site.

+2 though lately I've been considering not giving this advice any more. It only takes somebody .0443 seconds to find the necessary info to tell them not to get one unless they're doing major upgrades to their car. I'm starting to feel like if they're too lazy to search, then I'm too lazy to tell them the same information again for the 587,587th time...

also look for a better brand than perrin
You got something against them? ;)

its their quality all together

search around
ive heard negative stuff about perrin before. nobody is ever specific about why they dislike the company. you say its the quality, but with what part did you have the problem? im not trying to stand up for perrin, i plan on dumping a ton of money into my car and i want to make sure its well spent.

Perrin DP won't fit stock mid pipe. Cobb will though and it is better. BOV's are bad for our cars.

Then everybody you know has put a stupid modification on their car that could cause power loss and engine problems. (assuming they don't have a FMIC or bigger turbo or something that can actually use the BOV).

Yes, you only need one cat.

1. A BOV as a mod is a bad idea. Will cause idle problems, cause you to run rich, cause shifting miscues.
2. A single cat is all you need to pass inspection...you MAY run into emission issues, depending on your state or county...MAY...
