Wrx bov leaking

Recommended Posts

I know you can crush a stock WRX bov to stop it from leaking under boost. It has no boost and leaks, and makes my car idle like crap!

It's a 2005(I think) BOV


Recirc isn't really an option.

just pick up an oem sti valve on nasioc -- mine has been holding up to 22psi just fine for years with zero surge (on a fmic!).

any more psi than that, you should really consider an aftermarket valve proven to hold higher boost.


re the spring tightening, i have read of guys trying washers in these metal oem valves for that purpose -- not sure how successful, or whether any side-effects like comp surge arise.

there is also the "mad scientist mod" you can search on nasioc for these oem valves.
