Nice car. One thing - the BOV will cause your car to run rich, and decrease the performance. Personally, I'd say ditch it and go back to the stock BPV. If you want to hear the turbo spool up more and the BPV release, I'd suggest doing the silencer delete (it's been discussed a bunch of times on here, just use the search).

engine management? noob question.. dont know exactly wat u mean
Engine management is pretty self-explanatory, if you ask me - it allows you to update the ECU for things like boost, air/fuel ratio, etc.

Examples include the Cobb AP, TurboXS UTEC, etc.

Stock WRX boost is around 14psi - what's putting it to 19 or 20? MBC? EM?

When you find out what other mods it has, let us know - stuff like a CAI, BOV, MBC, turbo timer are things you'll want to sell to put towards mods that will give you better performance.

Is a down pipe among the other mods? I didn't know you could slap a vf39 on a wrx with the stock down pipe. Or if you could, would it even make sense too?

So your saying you have an upgraded turbo, and do not know what engine management is?:eek3:

I am guessing you had someone else do all this stuff for you?

Yeah and do you have the stock downpipe or is it after market?
