    Looking for some answers about ST exhale kits

    Hello! I currently have an aftermarket BOV (turbosmart), and I was wondering if the CPE kit is worth the upgrade. I am using the stock vacuum pump line, not using intake manifold pressure, and I've heard that this blows off very quickly for safety reasons. This is my daily driver, so I wanted to be completely sure that using "real" intake vacuum will not lessen the longevity of the car. My last question is about the difficulty of the installation. I have seen some videos, and it seems pretty tricky because the space is very limited. I'm most interested in the kit with an HKS BOV, unless there's a better reason to get the kit with the Tial BOV. Thanks in advance!

    The CP-e kit is only an upgrade if you plan on going big turbo. More specifically a big turbo that requires an external bov setup, such as an ATP kit.

    Its an easy install, if you undo the 4 bolts for the radiator support support the rad, and flex it out of the way. Gives you all the room.

    If you don't plan on going big turbo, then you are just dropping 500 bucks for a novelty. Granted it does have a single meth bung, but you could just get their methcharge pipe instead.

    Ok, thanks. If I decide to go with a bigger turbo, it will probably be with an RS head and the RS turbo, like I mentioned in another thread somewhere around here.

    I've been ru Ning the TiAL valve for most of my cars life. Had it now for over 6 years with almost 60K. A properly configured BOV won't mess with these cars since ours is MAP ot MAF based.

    Sent from another garage.
