Turbo smart dual port BOV (loosing power?)

Recommended Posts

Hey guys I have a stock 2005 V9 WRX STi

i just installed a turbo smart dual port BOV, i adjusted the BOV to soft and took it for a few runs on boost to sort it out and to make sure it releases properly under boost. However it kinda feels a lot slower? As in the revs feel like they drop more in higher gears than they used to? Not sure where to go, do I need a tune? Just rather ask on here before someone makes me spend extra money for a tune if it’s just a simple fix. Cheers :)

Have you adjusted it up from full soft?

most likely it’s starting to open before you are at full boost and leaking power. 
 

did you idle the car and make sure the port stays closed before you drive it?

Hey bro! Yeah I did. I made sure it was closed upon idle, I adjusted it up from soft but just not sure how hard or soft I should go 😀
