Dont thank him. That advice pretty much sucks. There is next to no explaination, the way he words it is misleading and will lead to misconceptions, and he acts like all of that doesnt apply to all years.
A manual boost controller is FINE, on ANY year WRX, as long as you get tuned to handle it. Once that is done, rock the MBC all you want, safely, forever.
The BOV, he is entirely, 100% wrong. There is 0.0% chance it can lead to a cooked piston or turbo. In fact, a "cooked turbo" is something that almost never happens, and never, EVER, from a BOV. Or an MBC for that matter.
