to BOV or not to BOV that is the question?
Got my rear exit arrive this week for my 2005 rxp, hope to have that on at the weekend. Next part of the plan is maybe fitting a riva BOV. Are they any good? I know the priciple, I had a blitz piston type fitted to my impreza. Does the riva valve make a noise when it dumps?..... sorry just made myself chuckle!
I'm not going as far as fitting an external IC (well not planning yet..) just would like to hear peoples experiences with them, diaphram probs etc etc.
Also i have an R&D power intake kit, is there a silcone hose available to replace the accordian pipe between that and the charger?

i was told by a sea doo mechanic that a bov isnt the best thing because its good for the charger to keep the excess air inside. I forget the exact reason why but im sure someone can elaberate

lol cheers guys, I think its a must purchase!
As for the purchase of an external IC, I think that one will have to wait a couple of seasons as bank account and credit card is still recovering from the shafting they got in the first month of purchasing the ski! Its ok for all you guys in the land of the free, unfortunately I live in rip off Britain where the government over here rapes the average working man for everything he has! So an intercooler over here costs £1500 which is approx $2270!!! or a BOV is equal to over $300!! I would buy from the states but the price of p & p, delivery time and of course TAX! makes it about the same!
I see there are 2 types of BOV available what is the difference apart for the price for the shiney shiney one?!
