A couple of months ago I modified an illustration that I got from howitworks.com. But was not specific to the WRX, so I created one that is pretty darn close. As you can see by the diagram, you can locate everything you might want to upgrade.

Wow, great job! Believe it or not, I am still pretty much clueless as to how turbo engines actually work. This diagram will be very helpful to me.... :)

The only thing I would add is that their is a hose that goes from the BOV to the inlet hose right before the turbo. This would show that our BOV recirculates and does not vent to air in stock form.

So that's how it works.. :eek:

j/k

Some suggestions so the noobs don't get confused.

- As somebody pointed out, the bypass valve is recirculating and should plumb back between the MAF and compressor.
- It's actually a pre-turbo catalytic converter.
- Your 'front exhaust pipe' is most commonly referred to as the 'crosspipe'.
- The correct (factory) term for BOV is 'bypass valve'.
- 'Intercooler' is a dictionary word and doesn't need to be hyphenated (now I'm really nit-picking!)

:)

It looks real nice though. Good job.
