I'm running the GFB hybrid on my '13 wrx with a process west tmic, holds boost great as would the stock unit, around 22psi. I like the sound of the partial atmospheric dump under medium load, reminds me of my 04' sti's fully atmospheric bov. Can't hear anything under heavy load due to my ewg. Had a Forge recirc and I could hear it recirculating under light load which the GFB doesn't do which I like better, less sounds under light driving.

The other problem is that his FAQs are based on a compliation of posts on nasioc, AND his own knowledge. The unfortunate reality is that much of the stuff in his FAQs, is based on things that were never correct to begin with, because a lot of the threads the info came from, were wrong to begin with.


If his FAQs were working, there wouldnt be nearly the problems that there are. The problem is that his FAQs dont get straight to the point, and dump out a bunch of tech info that many people just dont understand or take the time to bother reading. This FAQ was made for ONE purpose. To get straight to the point, and try to squash some of the myths.


Not to mention that I know more about it the things I write FAQs on. 20 years automotive experience teaches you a few things
I've heard from a subaru tech that the ecu will learn that the car is running rich and then take fuel away at the wrong times causing a lean mixture. Any truth to what he said or was he wrong?

Let's hope with people reading this they'll be less posts titled "should I get a BOV? I like the sound"

Default loudness

How much louder is an aftermarket BPV vs. Stock BPV? I am running 22psi and I am looking into aftermarket BPVs so I can be safe with more power gains. Are there any aftermarket BPVs that are as loud or around the same loudness as stock?

Pretty loud; assuming the WRX that's parked not too far from my work drives by all the time and can hear it from a good block away (but without buildings in between).

Yeah my Tial 50mm has had issues with leaking. So I bough a HKS SSQV 4, is there an adapter/flange that can go tial to hks?

Anyone have a Turbosmart kompact? Mine is like 2 months old and already leaking. I talked to turbosmart and they just keep trying to avoid warranting it. They suggested I rebuild it and told me I need the O ring kit. Why would I buy a O ring kit for a 3 month old BOV?

Seriously? Read the first freaking post he outlines which valves have been known to leak and which ones don't.

So I'm curious about some things when performing a leak test.. it seems alot of people say valves leak especially the venting bias ones.. when really I've done a little research and found that they tend to leak because people testing them are pressuring the plumb back tube as well which if I'm not mistaken is always under vacuum so if this is so wouldn't the correct way to smoke test a bov would be to disconnect the plumb back and plug it off?

by "plumb back" do you mean the manifold reference?

If so, the assumption that that point is always under vacuum is wrong.

I mean the tube that recirculates the air back to the manifold.. I got this info from a video that GFB posted about smoke testing bov's and the correct way to do it on YouTube so I'm trying to figure out basically if GFB is doing that and showing that for marketing or if tuning shops are doing it wrong I really don't know who's right that's what I'm trying to learn

I personally pressurize my intercooler pipe coming off the turbo, so no , the recirc hose is not pressurized, but the intercooler/intake manifold and vac lines all are

I am running a stage 1 cobb tune 2006 WRX...I want to put a BOV on my car but I don't have one right now. Is there a BOV that will be similar to stock or any suggestions for a BOV that will go well with a stage 1?
