I've driven WRXs, Evos, 911s, 944s, Skylines, Supras, 240SXs, etc. etc. etc. that had no major issues running atmospheric. I was in the industry for almost a decade and have been exposed to all sorts of setups.

Take it for what you will. It's just my opinion.

I talked to EFI logics and they confirmed that with the new update with speed density that BOVs won't have any adverse effects anymore as long as you're properly tuned for it.
Nonetheless it's still a waste of money imo, only gains you'll have is an increase in sound... and if that's what you're into then I guess it's worth it, not my thing though

^ was just able to post... Seems like Cobb's new update with Speed Density allows you to run a BOV... But yes, it'd be JUST for the sound and have no gains

So with so much pros and cons is it really just a judgement call? Sound vs no sound? Rich vs lean? Or they safe?

Convert to speed density and you can run as big a BOV as you want without side effects

My 07 had a BOV..... My 12 doesn't. I have mixed emotions on this but ain't willing to void my warranty. Any alternatives?
