Well now that the car starts and is running, I have a couple things left on my list to get before I bring it to the bodyshop. Right now I still have EMB and the **** AFM, but I 100% plan on going MS, but not for another 2-3 weeks. So really, I only need the EMB to get me to the bodyshop and back home, then I can install the MS.
My Greddy boost gauge hasn't worked since the bodyshop did some work on my car last year. I wanted a different one anyway, so now is the time. I'm leaning toward a Defi boost gauge
. I like the looks and I have heard nothing good about them. What do you guys think?
Most importantly is what BOV to choose. I have been back and forth between WTF to get for awhile now. I had the HKS SSQV on my old setup and never experienced any problems with it....ever. I see alot of people on here more and more are going with the Ebay knockoffs of the Greddy type RS. I am all for saving a ton of cash, but I worry only about quality. The FM BOV I have now does not work with my AFM setup, so I will just sell that along with all the FM intercooler stuff I have. I was doing reading on Blitz, Tial, Apexi, etc etc and wanted to see what the general consensus was on BOV's.
Lastly, whats the deal with catch cans. I've seen them on some setups, and not on others. I've read good things about them, as well as bad things about them. The only reason I would want one is for what I hear about what comes out of them. It seems you can really get some nasty **** out of your system using one. I was gonna even gonna grab one to replace my **** yellow radiator overflow with. I took one look at that nasty overflow and decided that there has to be something else that looks halfway decent.
Just wanted to see what some of you had to say about the above. BOV's is a touchy subject because everyone likes something different, but I'm just looking to see what you guys are using and how happy you are with it. I'm leaning toward the Ebay type RS, but for like $25 it just seems sooo cheap.
