Default can we get some some satified bov users to comment here please?

I can't help wanting to get a bov in the near future and all the ppl on here who talk **** about them kinda get on my nerves. My friend has had an hks ssq in his wrx for quite some time now and doesn't seem to be having any problems with it at all. I know quite a few people have bovs so can you just tell us how you have enjoyed having your bov?

I do enjoy having my ssqv bov. But there are always those times when i would like to have it silent. I have not noticed and problems. What bov are you looking at? I would conisder a bov that you can change from full recirc. to full atmos.

You won't know there are problems unless you happen to monitoring your AFR during shifts. Crappy idle etc. will be noticeable, but what about the richness between shifts?

Friend of mine has an HKS SSQV in his MY03 WRX. I love it but that's when i'm riding with him, he told me that sometimes when he ride his car for a long time, he gets pissed of it.

But except that, he loves it compared to another guy he knows. (Turbonetics)

I have a Perrin recirc valve. I only switched to it when my stocker wouldn't hold 22psi anymore. Works perfectly.

I have had the Turbo XS RFL for a long time. I usually got the stereo up loud that I dont hear it most of the time. It just gets annoying wen people ask to hear the sound. Its funny when they stand next to it when the hoods open and they jump back.

Too much fuel dumped into the engine and cot enough air to compensate for combustion. It ends up leaving through the exhaust. Thats how you can shoot flames

Haha.... This thread is pointless...... If you want a loud, obnoxious sound coming from your car, then of course you're going to like a BOV....

But if you're looking for the performance side (And I've had a few).... Absoultely worthless waste of money on a car running a stock turbo..... Nuff said....

Just buy a used one. Lots of people who thought like you sell them now. You can sell it later when you get sick of the problems. Some people just need to see for themselves.

Turbo XS RFL.......

I love it, normal driving is fine and when you want to go vroomm, you got the ppssshhhh!!! hahaha anyway, I've never had any problems with my BOV. i would recommend going with a 50/50 bov or get one that gives you the coice of 100% atmos. or full-recirc. I wish I would have done a little research but certainly no regrets. enjoy it!

I had a Forge BOV on my old '03 WRX. It worked great with both the stock and a TXS v2 TMIC. I put the same valve on my '04 STi. Again, it worked great with the stock TMIC.

I moved to a Perrin FMIC with the old-style piping (BOV flange closer to turbo, not TB), and the Forge BOV would cause all kinds of surging.

I tried using the stock BPV, and it couldn't hold the boost (>20psi during a dyno session). Next, I tried using a modified stock BPV, but it was sometimes slow to close after high RPM shifts.

Finally, I traded with a fellow Scooby owner for a Forge BPV, and it works great. I have to *try* to get surge.

I have the stock BPV, and it goes pppssssshhhhhhhh just like an aftermarket one. I run 18# of boost and it holds just fine. I had a buddy with an aftermarket BOV and my stock one is just as loud as his. Of course, I have a Cobb intake on my car.
