Hey guys, been away for a while.

Quick question for you all. I have a stock 15 st2 SP and I'm really thinking about getting the BOV and flutter sound added to the car, in your opinions, what exactly would I need to purchase/install to get this?

Please bare in mind it's completely stock at the mo.

Thanks for any help!

First up you would need to dust off your Burberry baseball hat and adopt a new lingo, innit.

Then you'd have to apply two Maccie D trays to the rear wheel and do some mad skidzzzzz.

In all seriousness, don't. A BOV replaces the recirculation valve which is there to recycle unused boost in order to minimise turbo lag and allow the car to progress quicker.

Venting that boost into atmosphere will make a noise, but then the car has to generate that boost again in order to spool up the turbo. Having it stored ready for use makes it much easier to get the car moving quickly.

If you want to replace it with anything (assuming you need to handle more boost following a remap?) then look at a GFB DV which handles boost better and can create a flutter noise at gear change, but retains the boost.

Yes I still love the RS it is such a capable car just point it in the direction you want to go and no matter how much right foot you give it just goes in the direction you want it to. The longer I have had it the more I like it.

Went in for the recall on 4th June passed the pressure test so only HG needed so have now put my Bluefin on it which gives it so much torque in the mid range and just keeps pulling at the top end. Being lowered a week Sat which is something I have wanted to do since I had it sits too high at the rear

:nope: I couldn't and once you start it's a slippery road :yep:

You only live once mate...just need her indoors to think like that :lol:

How much is yours lowered by ? Im having H&R 20mm all round and 20mm spacers as I got the std alloys if they were the forged I could have got away with 15mm spacers so will probably have to invest in mud flaps as well :facepalm:
