i took mine off once to see what happens and i got the same results. Right now i have a Greddy RS bov and its not recirculated. The car doesn't stall, but i did get a protune.

IF you want to hear the BOV i would recommend getting a CAI if you dont have one already. You will also hear the turbo spool.

Taking out the recirc hose will cause backfires in the exhaust due to the car running rich instantaneously.

But it has neligible effect on reliability.

You can get a CAI from RalliTEK.com or from Ultimateracing.com.

There's no way to teach the ECU.

There's no way for the ECU to measure how much air was released by the BOV and to correct the fuel input.

Is there any benefit to taking off the recirc hose other than to hear the BOV?? ??? I've heard that there is really no need to change your BOV and that it can actually hurt your car...at least that's what I read on NASIOC.

1. No.
2. Correct, unless you are running a lot more boost than stock, as the stock one leaks over a certain psi.....

Because the recirc of that air, as I understand it, is expected by the cars computer. So you are essentially running really rich, because the car expects that air, then doesn't get it. The car stalls because there isn't enough air to mix with the fuel to ignite it. Subarus (05+ iirc) are VERY picky about this. If you want to make noise, you might try an intake or a BPV but you MUST get a tune in order to safely run those things without the risk of screwing things up. You have the choice of open source or access port tunes. Each has their own positives and negatives. I would suggest reading a lot more before doing any further mods.
