    last year i ran an STI and i know at the very least he had a BOV and exhaust.
    he had the jump on me and i just went around him like nothing, i was kinda shocked because i figured he would of put up a better fight.

    It's mind bottling to me. We know a guy who has a black Evo 9 with meth and he pulled on my WS6 from a roll and he had less mods than the STI did. They are fun cars to drive, way nicer interior than the Evo's, again in my opinion. but when it comes to modding with that money he has invested it should be way faster. He still claims to be able to whoop on V8's all day long, I'd like to see him run into Mrr23 one day or line up with a cobra. Picking on GT's is nothing.

    BOV isn't a power mod just so you know. If you could hear the BoV more then likely he's running a VTA BoV which is actually poorer for the car.

    BOVs are there so you dont blow up your engine from too much PSI.

    The VTA (Vent to Atmosphere if I remember right) are worthless for cars. They let go of all pressure and it makes the turbo work harder. That is to my knowledge I'm sure 4tun8 knows more about it than I do. Recirculating valves are what most turbo cars have.

    Both of you are wrong. A blow off valve is a device that was set into place to reduce lag between shifts and to save the life of a turbo. Prior to cars having a Diverter Valve or a Blow off Valve when a person would lift off the gas during boost the throttle plate would close and the boost pressure would only have one place to go...........back through the turbo backwards.

    This is bad for turbos and causes lag between shifts since the turbo has to firstly stop spinning backwards before it can build boost.


    VTA blow off valves are GREAT and most of the best blow off valves are VTA, the Tial 50mm for example. However this is only true with cars that use speed density calculations as part of the cars fueling system. If the car uses Mass Air metering like most cars do.......VTA will cause conditions that are a hinderance.

    Most true performance enthusiests that have Metered cars will recognize a person using a blow off valve as being a ricer and they just want to hear the sound. I have a great diverter valve on my car but over my external wastegate and the fact that it recirculates............you'll probably never hear it.

    IMO 2 turbo's are only efficient when you have BIG cubic inch and 1500+ Hp, Otherwise 1 Single will do the job for alot Cheaper.

    I was thinking something that would spool up fast for street use on a 454 LSX build. I've always heard 2 smaller twins would be better on the street than one big one. I could be wrong though. I didn't to much research yet seeing I still need to get to the motor first. I've got the rear now so next is a built 6 speed and clutch.

    With such a big motor you don't notice turbo lag because you're already making so much power, that's why twins is kind of meh.

    Yeah thanks bro, I was trying to give a broad general explanation, not go into using things like MAF translators.

    Force feeding the LS1 is way out of reach at the moment, but I am looking into it in the future. I know when you hear v8 you think "supercharger" but it seems like a TT setup is becoming more popular for our engines/cars. Can somebody explain to me why?

    Please don't bash my car... I saved it from Mexicans
