Is it advisable to put BOV in a stock evo or sti?

Very controversial mod actually for stock Evos and STis. 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 BOVs

HTH :)

OT, It's time to remove your catalytic converter for more power gains! ;D I added about 30 kph to my top end when I removed mine.

With the kind help of Speedyfix I modified my factory Blow-Off Valve from this modification guide here:

http://www.nissansilvia.co.nz/tech/factorybov.htm

We blocked off the small hole with a screw and some Loctite.

This is strictly for Nissan Silvia BOV's. Though I haven't really pushed the car yet since it's been raining since I had it done, but off hand my car is a bit more responsive in the lower end and there's a slightly louder indication that the BOV is working more compared to before. It's not very loud though as it is "plumbed back" into the intake, but I can here it through my aftermarket air filter.

with my evo, back then, i had a TBE (turbo back exhaust) as my first mod. after that, ive been hearing a little spool up.. i then installed a HKS RS Intake (the one that looks like a beehive), with stock BOV, and damn that was loud! the evo stock MR BOV actually could hold my boost (which was tuned at 20.5 PSI with my manual boost controller), but when i got my greddy type-s bov, it sounded so sweet..

i vented it to atmosphere and whoa, i love revving up at inside parking lot structures by the wall at corners with the hood popped.
