When you say "dying" does that mean the car stalls out?

get the recirculating kit. ive heard of cars stalling out because they were running to much to the atmosphere. put the stock back on and see what happens.

yeah, the engine is expecting the air you are venting (MAF sensor property). so the ecu is gassin as normal but the air isn't there.

Using an atmospheric BOV does not cause your engine to die. It causes a momentary rich condition during shifting. The only way your car is stalling is if there is a leak in the intake track. It can also be caused by a BOV that is adjusted to be too loose. The Greddy BOV has also been known to have a leak in the diaphram. It doesn't occur for everyone, but on some BOV's, it's there. This could be the reason for your car stalling. Also, turning the nut does nothing. You're supposed to loosen the nut and then use an allen key to turn the actual post. The nut is there to prevent the adjustment from backing out.

WRX8U82 I see you are having some problems. Ok, first of all, do you have both springs inside the bov?

Meaning the bigger spring and the small softer spring? You need them both in the blow off valve for it to stay closed at idle.

The reason your car dies as soon as you try to start it is because you probably dont have both springs installed so it doesnt have enough force to keep the valve closed.

If you already have both springs installed then make sure that everything is tightened correctly and that the bov is seated correctly on the intercooler (or wherever you have it mounted) and that there are no leaks.

Dont pay attention to my post that cnk linked to yet.

Do you have a washer for the screw on top of the bov?

If not, then you need to get one so that when you tighten the blow off valve it doesnt unscrew itself and get any looser (thats what the washer is for).

Let me know how things go so I can continue to help you troubleshoot things.
