Not sure if this was asked before so if it has feel free to flame. Is the blue ring around your spedo, tacho etc...something you did or just the lighting when you took the picture?

This image?




It's just the picture. In person it's a white ring from the needle glow. It came like that from the factory. No mods to the cluster yet except for the tire pressure monitor removal

Haha, if it was only that easy....
Since there is no wire to unplug or the thought of looking at electrical tape in my dash would drive me up a wall. I decided to disassemble the cluster and un-solder the led for the warning light. If you cut the wire it will just keep the light on, it the signal from the module that keeps it off.

Yupp, the hot-side and the throttle body side. The nice thing is that it has an optional hot-side hose that you can buy if you decide to upgrade to an STI style turbo outlet.
It's pretty sweet and comes with the new cowl too!

Playing with Photoshop this evening...
Still not a fan of the front mount as much as I used to be. It looks sweet but I instantly remember the pain it was to keep it looking as fresh and new.

Just dropped it in using Photoshop, I was bored...
And no write up on the PW until I get the redesigned bracket from them.

The install sheet is really good though so I may never actually do one.

All the new ones have it already... It's just a new turbo adapter that is at a different angle.
They finished the design over Easter so all new units have it now.

Mine looks very far from fresh and new. Looks pretty crappy from close up, actually. LOL.

Dude not to sound like an ass, but have you even done any research at all? All these questions your asking has been asked time and time again on these forums. I suggest you read Unabomber's Manifesto as it probably will answer every single question you have and then some. Here's the link http://forums.nasioc.com/forums/showthread.php?t=533787

But to answer your question, no you don't need a tune with the pw tmic. And I assume you meant bpv not bov right? You won't see any gains and the benefits of the upgraded tmic without the tune though.

Actually cliff not to sound like an ass also but it's bcuz of the research I ask u see overland has a nice project coming along here and I did mean bov as in turbosmart dual port bov ad since I read that it's possible that the extra vented air can make engine run rich I was asking if he seen any effect in adding those parts before his tune but thank you for the link you see I have admitted that I am somewhat a noob to building a Wrx learning can be fun and tiring at the same time

Hey Rex...
I haven't tried to run a dual port Bov on my car. I switched to the TurboSmart Kompact BPV just to quiet the stock one down. After the intake went on, the stock BPV was too loud for my liking so I switched to the quietest one I could find. Not to knock the sweet sound of a open BOV but every time I got on the car I felt I sounded like a immature teen in a 95 Turbo Talon.

Well I'm just curious as to how u feel it performed I enjoy the loud obnoxious sounds of the cars I spend my money on I just want to know if u felt the performance lacked because of not having a tune when installed

I did have it tuned with it on but, I did the injectors, pump, plugs, intercooler and BPV at the same time so it's tough to say.
I would say to read through Ron's post on BOV/BPV (HERE). Since I had it tuned, he'll be the better source for real time information.
