Sounds like a good time, almost as good as bubb rubb's whistle tip, only more expensive.

I forgot to mention. I did notice the "Pop Pop Bang Bang" out the muffler, it was not loud but it was happening.

BTW BigRigger, I hear what you are saying. Like I stated, I tried it and it was a bit rough, noting too crazy, but for me I can tell the difference. I have read some people have had no issues to little. From what I felt, I can see how it's not a huge ordeal, i just personally feel the car likes the BPV vs BOV.

Good luck with it

KOSTI switching back to stock bpv is a great idea and that write up on that hks bov was great!

everyone is talking about one extreme or the other, as far as recirc or atmosphere. what does everyone think about a 50/50? now that we understand that the full atmosphere is no good... has anyone had any experience with a 50/50??? any opinions on the 50/50??

50/50 isn't as bad as 100 but still is not good

i have a 50/50 for over a year now - it's better than a full venting BOV, but it's still not as good as a full recirculating (although my car was tuned for my BOV/BPV and other mods).

What made you decide to go with a 50/50 over a full recircluating valve? On that note, I know in the rally vids I've watched you can hear the BOV... is that a 50/50 as well, or is it full recirc and its just very noisy? Or something else?

i went with a 50/50 because i wanted the BOV sound and some backfire, but not a rich stumble that couldn't be mostly corrected with a protune.

i am uncertain of the rally cars.
