Well I'm thinking about buying the new GFB (Go Fast Bits) Deceptor Pro BOV which has an electronic proportional in-car adjustment of blow-off valve volume. You should check out their website for more details about it here http://www.gfb.com.au/index.php?pare...n=deceptor_pro

The video of the Deceptor Pro BOV in action is used with a Subaru STi.

Just a thought, so if the MAF sensor is after the throttle body, won't that be better?

So when will a Bov be beneficial?

Thank you very much for this thread. It just saved me the hassle of getting a BOV.

Now that I think of this thread, it does make sense. I have a friend with an 06 STi that did a BOV replacement and the car was running like ass.

Another ignorant question here, I have never cared for the sound of a BOV to begin with, but I am wondering where it all came from. I assume someone made a cheaper BOV that can handle higher boost pressures before opening, but it would seem to me to be the same thing as a BPV that can handle higher boost pressures, right? It's just a BPV without the feedback tube. If someone got a BOV on our engine, what would you do with the hose/hole for the recirculated air anyway?

greddy type s and type rs valves are recirculating... it takes longer than a non recirc to install.. (requires removal of intercooler) and sounds and performs exactly the same as the factory one.. so if your in it for performance... forget it.. and if your in it for the sound.. get a BOV

Thanks nandanrp. I'll Try to put it in the right place next time. mtn05sleeper

Go Aps

did he do a 100% atmospheric BOV conversion, or did he do his homework and go 50/50?
