Default Choosing a BPV

Ok, I I have decided to upgrade the BPV on the blue sti. Everywhere I have read seems to point out that the stock USDM one is good up to 20 psi. The JDM one is reported to be good up to 25 but is unknown for sure. I run 24-26depending on the day, so I would feel better if I upgrade.

I also have been reading that BOV's are pretty much just not a good idea because of the extra fuel your burning, so would anyone recommend a good BPV? Im just starting to research so Ill probably make my purchase in a month or two.

So far, thinkin about this one...

Perrin makes a full recirc that has 2 adjustments, under boost it is forced close and is impossible to leak. It is what I use.

It's not really the car running rich that is the problem entirely. It's the aftermarket BOVs leaking which is the main problem. Also, did you do the crush mod yet for your stocker? Dale is a high supporter of that

havent done it, I thought about it but I figured Id just sell the old one and get a new one. Would kinda satisfy the urge to go buy something also, lol.

well if the bov was open you wouldn't have 25-26 psi. so i doubt there's any advantage ingoing with a new one. if you do remember the DBW cars really dislike atmospheric ones! get a recirc or adjustable at the least.

yea I wouldnt get one of those, they may sound cool and all(for those of you who like em) but id prefer to keep my performance up a bit for a while. Someday, the car may be detuned a smidge, but thats not for a while, and it will only be for a couple things such as a bov, springs, and unequal length headers!

Look at the tial bov's some of the best on the market and holds boost alot better than alot of other bov's. But Hks sounds the best hands down.

There seems to be good reviews about the Synchronic BOV and it has a recirc attachment too.
