Default Injen Intake w/ Turbo XS BOV

I just purchased these two items listed in the title and after reading some of the threads here, I think I may have done a bad thing.

One guy said that after adding the intake you could hear the turbo spoolup and the stock BOV better. But this TurboCS BOV is made to be loud. Supposedly up to 110db!

What do you guys think? Am I going to get irritated with this setup? I kind of wanted a sleeper/semi-quiet car.

in my opinion the Injen intake is not a good choice for the WRX. I know i know, i am totally biased. But the laws of physics aren't wrong and i think the universal fitment and long straw like design aren't optimal for the WRx. Again this just my totally biased opinion about another vendor's product. But hey, you asked.
Thanks,
Frank

Loud BOV certainly won't make your car a sleeper, if anything they'll draw lots of attention to your car. Also, ask adam99rs what he thinks of aftermarket intakes on turbo cars. Or do a search with his name and you'll find a long thread about the value of the intakes that have come along so far.
After snooping around some, I think Frank's intake makes the most economical sense. You don't really need to get a BOV if you want yours to be heard with Frank's kit and you get a really good panel filter. Plus if you're shooting for a sleeper, Frank's kit looks almost dead stock.
Also, if you check out the current issue of SCC, some of the cars in that shootout had stock air boxes and still managed to pull around 200 hp to the wheels. What TCG offers is improved flow through your stock airbox at a much lower price than the "CAI" kits.

Well I have the TXS BOV and the intake silencer mod.

I like both. The BOV is just loud enough to hear over my MKIII exhaust.

I don`t think its 110db though. Even venting at 16 psi it really isn`t that bad. IMHO.

You can always install it and see what you think.

Adding the intake won`t make the BOV louder if that was what you were asking. Sitting in the car you will hear the BOV vent in front of you and the turbo spooling to the front right side.

I have the injen air intake in my wrx, and I have to tell you that it sorta heightens all of the sounds that the engine makes. I did not really notice the car get louder, but what I did notice was that I could very clearly hear the turbo when it spooled up ( now that is an addictive sound!!) and also that of the BOV sound when I changed gears. Now I am not sure whether bystanders could hear any of this, but inside the car, it is all very noticeable. The stock BOV is not all that loud, but it is noticeable... Hope this helps some!

Thanks Jigga for the info, that is exactly what I wanted to hear. I guess I'll live with a nice turbo sound and a loud BOV!

I have had the injen intake on my car for over 1 year with a hks ssq & a cat back exhaust. So far no problems and no cells.
Car runs really well except for the hks ssq that stopped working after about 6 months of use and it took about 4 month for it to be repaired.

i bought the injen intake recently along w/ hks carbon-ti exhaust. im putting them in on friday. i also have a greddy type-s BOV w/ the recirc kit. im just gonna plug the hose tho so it'll vent atmospherically and then im guessing my car will be pretty loud. anyone else have any experiences w/ these parts?

I have had the Injen CAI on my car for over a year. Haven't had one problem with it. Didn't do anything for performance but it sounds really good.

Thumbs up Injen CAI + TurboXS BOV on 04 STi

I cannot vouch for others but using the Injen CAI specific for the 04 STi + the TurboXS BOV do not cause any problems. Few points worth mentioning - I have the TurboXS Turboback exhaust w/ uppipe also installed along with the intake and bov. The exhaust and intake compliment each other greatly. I wouldn't bother with a CAI unless you had some exhaust or a FMIC. Don't waste your cash on a CAI if you plan on doing a front mount soon. I however am not planning on the front mount until later down the road. This particular intake does make a "sucking" sound when your getting on the accelerator a little bit. I like it personally, not something to detract from the quality of this product. I don't know dyno numbers but this intake does add a little more pep and it looks great too!!!! I have the polished CAI but if you wanted to drop a little more cash go buy the limited edition STi wrinkle red version = very cool. Hope this helps
