people will run you around a tree going over the whole BOV subject on subies. If you have a BOV i would get it tuned just to be on the safe side, but people will still crucify you for it. Thats a question to ask rick though...

hah thanks for the quick response rick. yeah i have the stock 02 5 speed, which was crafted of glass and bits of tin. after a new tranny i want to run around 25-28 psi.

 

I'm pretty sure its got something to do with the placement of the MAF sensor, and the BPV being after that on the intake. dunno, but quote me if im wrong rick.

you pretty much hit the nail on the head.

i had to replace my MAF sensor because of the bov i had. the busted MAF sensor had my ecu retarding my timing almost to the point where i would blow my motor if i went over 4k rpms. bovs on subies, not worth it imo.

hmmm, ive been running a hks ssqv for about a month and a half, as of yesterday if i go over 5 psi it misfires and bogs and is just pissed, but runs fine otherwise, you think its the MAF or plugs? ive gone through everything and rechecked, but still no fix yet.
