I have a question about BOV's. Is it true that at times you can possibly lose power with having a BOV. Also im getting my 2012 STI Wagon soon and im still debating on if i should go with a BOV. Please help!!!

Would a BOV be necessary or at all beneficial with a turbo upgrade at around 21-23PSI?
Say a DOM 1.5 with all supporting mods and an EWG set up...

I've been wanting to get a BOV for my 2011 wrx.. but I'm learning to live without an aftermarket. trying to avoid unwanted attention from cops. Here in cali that's asking to get pulled over.

From what I understand a benefit from an aftermarket BOV is a slight reduction in turbo lag. I must admit that I am that guy who is getting the BOV for the sound but I don't care if people hate it. I am getting the part for my enjoyment. I went with a hybrid 50/50 BOV so it gives me the option to reduce the noise if I get tired of the unwanted attention.

I also am one of those guys, and as long as you like what you have, go for it. Even if cheapo body kits and altezza taillights are your thing. BOVs are much more respectable in my book, but that's just my opinion.

That is the truth! Like I said, I went with a hybrid BOV so I can change it to a complete recirc if I grow tired of the noise. But, I am still young so I am sure it is going to be annoying people for a long time muahahaha

please show me where in this original post it states bov's help reduce turbo lag........stop spreading false information in the community.

if you want the sound and care about your car, get a quality valve (Tial) or dont complain when the valve is causing you issues.

A blow-off valve bleeds off the excess pressure in the intake system. Since this pressure is what causes the turbocharger to stop spinning when the accelerator pedal is released, using a blow-off valve means that the power to the engine does not cease immediately once the accelerator is released, allowing for speed to increase even during gear changes. Also, because the turbocharger does not slow dramatically, there is less lag once the accelerator is depressed again, meaning that the power comes back up more quickly after a shift change or deceleration.

I feel like that is comaring a blow off valve to having no form of valve, be it blow off or the stock bpv. no car comes turbo without a form of a valve. adding a blow off valve to a wrx, which already has a bpv, will not change spool-up time at all.

please, stop polluting this forum.

^ this is true assuming that the stock valve isn't leaking more than the aftermarket valve (be it bov or bpv)...i also think you guys are confusing turbo response and turbo lag...turbo lag by definition is not what you guys are describing here
