Default aftermarket bov for legacy turbo...

i read everywhere about peeps getting aftermarket bov for wrx's and everything else but was just wondering if anyone has an aftermarket bov on their legacy turbo. well? how's it sound? i know it's a controversial topic of debate but to me it's all a sound mod, but a cool one. anyone have one with any adverse effects? pros. cons.

Question

Is it even possible to install one on our cars? Don't we need intercoolers? I really don't know much about them, they do sound nice. Info anyone?

Without actually changing the turbo-manifold piece, or installing an intercooler, there's really no reason to even consider changing the BOV.

DLC- i don't really think there is much of a point in one either way except for a sound mod. i'd still like to get the "pssshhtt" sound. i just love that dang sound, makes me wanna go rally

Actually, the stock BOV is a piece of crap, and surely leaks, but what can you do. A good BOV is very important, and the best ones don't make the hissing noises most people like either.
