False. Pretty sure the stock bpv holds up to about 21? Not sure exactly but I boost about 18 psi well and mine is holdin up fine.

The 08+ WRX plastic BPV's are hit or miss. Some will work at 20psi and some will leak at 15psi. It's hard to tell when they're leaking. For the price, I think the Forge is well worth it for a Stage 2 car.

Mine is failing already and I'm 19psi. I only have 7K miles on mine stage 2+ now it makes a really bad noise and won't hold boost. Oh well it's getting replaced.

You have done zero research. Go to the top of this forum and you'll see a post titled:

Hey everybody new to the forum: READ THIS!

Now go read the damn thing. Inside is a post titled BOV FAQ.

If you want to futz with your car, this is how you do it:

1. Research.
2. Research.
3. Buy.

If you don't do the first two steps, it could lead you to motor shopping. L E A R N exactly what a BOV and BPV is and then you will know and have knowledge. Do it right or don't do it at all.

Forge holds 30+ psi. It's one of the quietest valves out there (fully recirculating).

You should add a grammar FAQ. It drives me nuts to see people post **** using the grammatical abilities of a 3rd grader.

There was a sticky about that. I don't remember which one, but basically it was a do's and dont's list for getting along on the forum.
