:) Hi everybody! Stoked about this new piece, it's very high quality, and the fit-up took about 20 mins max. Comes with an extra gasket, and also new SS mounting hardware. Very easy to adjust, depending on the amount of boost, and no idle trouble. Almost has two sounds in one... very cool. Now, to open the intake system for more sound! Seeya

APS not good?

This is the dualport piece that is easily adjustable. Now tell me the bad news.:confused:

what's the big deal with APS? Accessport is coming, and only stock timing... and 94octane if I can find it. What else do I need?

APS is similar to the VW dual dumpvalve... any words?

Yeah, I know of driveability problems with just a 100% atmospheric BOV... but this uses the stock diverter, and I just ran it all day in +29C weather... no idle problems. Gotta love it

Whomever says the APS bov causes problems probably has never had an APS bov. Had one on the stock system for a year before I upgraded my wrx with no problems. You can adjust it for stock and adjust it to push more air when you mod, but it still will always be a 50/50 bov so it recirculates under light boost. Keep it, they are nice pieces and good for when you start upgrading and up the boost.

APS is a go !!

:tup: Very simple install, very clean look, and very clean sound! Only had it for a day or two, but the only driving nic I've heard is a small burble on downshift after a lot of spirited driving. Adjusted it fairly loose so I could hear it, and I can dump to the 2nd port at about .7 bar. Friend of mine has no cats, and the same BOV, and he swears there's a bit of flame on downshift with a hot engine... we'll see... still got my cats. Kinda sounds like the old GReddy chirp first, the your hear the diverter kick in with a nice whoosh. Can't send pics as of this hour, but looking into it. Cheers!:)

he might be all talk, but he rally races for the Suby Canada amateur team, and he's also got 120 extra hp on me. :)
