Don't get one unless you really like the sound. There is no performance benefit, and a large chance of negative symptoms.

Best kind of BOV for subbies is a Recirc only.

50/50 refers to the fact that 50% of the boost is being put back into the intake and 50% is being released to the atmosphere, which is only a feature on certain aftermarket BOVs. The stock BPV or bypass valve vents the excess boost back into the intake tube, whereas a BOV vents the boost to the atmosphere. My friend had an HKS BOV that worked great for a couple of years with no problems, until it broke in the middle of traffic and his car died. If you're interested in the BOV sound, just get a typhoon intake and bask in the sound of the stock BPV whoooooooshing away.

IVE HAD AN HKS SSQV ON MY STI FOR TWO YEARS NOW WITH NO ISSUES WHAT SO EVER. I ALSO HAVE AN AEM COLD AIR INTAKE WITH SOME SUSPENSION WORK DONE. MY CAR RUNS BALLS. i plan to get a cobb ap with a downpipe very soon. most of the people in here dont recommend it with my setup but have never really backed up this info. mr hasslehoff thinks he know everything but he needs to stick to surfing i know for a fact that everything will be fine with each other and ill blow his doors off because he cant shift anyways. the hks ssqv is by far the best blow off valve for your ride. ive tried three of them.

I was just thinking (yes thats where the burning smell is coming from). If they make such great valves why have you gone through three of them?:eek2:

Lmao....freakin noob. You sure have alot of confidence in your relatively stock STi. FYI tough guy, 90% of the cars on this board would put a hurtin on you. You have alot to learn, and lot of mods still necessary before you start running ur trap like that again.
