Usually the stock recirculating BOV is sufficient for up to 400HP and no tuning.Replacing just the BOV will make the car run overly rich for a short period on that time when you close the throttle. It seems to be not so harmless until your cat converter starts to heat up. There are even some reports that it can get som bad that it starts to glow.If you are out for the sounds while not compromising your A/F mix, you can get any Vent to Atmosphere (VTA) BOV and just have it re-tuned, or get the hybrid BOV that is both recirculating and VTA. I believe it's Turbosmart or TurbXS that produces these hybrid BOVsHTH

Quote from: Conan on November 16, 2005, 10:18:03 AMActually bro I pass the emissions test quite easily even without the catalytic converter.
Quote from: R-A-Y on November 17, 2005, 01:04:45 AMI believe it will. We have pretty low emission standards here eh.
