    so what BOV does everyone recommend for an SR20- obviously since it's a MAF car, the BOV needs to recirculate- any recommendation? I've seen a few people running the HKS BOV, but i've read that it is fairly slow to respond-

    depends how much boost your pushing. for a cheap one, a crushed 1g dsm valve can handle a lot of boost

    can you run an open atmosphere bov on it anyways? Ive read you can, and the only bad thing is that it will stall out when you are stopped.....rarely.

    what i need is a BOV that has an outlet that can accept a tube that can then be routed back to the intake pipe, after the MAF and before the compressor

    and i know that there are plenty out there, what i'm wondering is if anyone has had a good experience with a particular brand

    i was under the impression that cars running MAF sensors would run silly rich when the BOV was open because the ECU was calculating fuel for air that wasn't there?

    oh and good to see you're alive JD :)

    ahhhh, I found another reason why a DV is better than BOV, specifically on MAF sensor cars

    since you vent the air from the DV to the intake pipe right before the turbo, you reduce the pumping effort that the turbo has to do and by doing so, you help to keep the turbo spinning between shifts :)

    DSM's get ugly when venting from the BOV into the atmoshpere....on SR's you'll fun fine..

    but it's really all up to you. but so you know you do have the option to vent the SR20 into the atmosphere.


    and yes, still alive :)

    when I had my talon I wanted to see the response of venting into the atmosphere, and the car ran like shit under idle and dumped fuel uptop.

    AFAIK none of the mirage/lancers on my board recirculate. i think its all got to do with the MAF.
