Edit- I believe the non turbo axles are 23 spline, and the turbo's are 25.

Axle spline-count depends on what transmission you have. All 3-speed automatics (aka 3AT) use 23-spline, regardless of turbo or not. The 4-speed automatic, which yours might be, uses 25-spline. All 5-speed 4wd manuals for turbo cars use 25-spline.
I suspect that you have a 4-speed automatic (aka 4EAT). This is a relatively uncommon tranny (IIRC, only available on 88-90 turbo models).
Not sure what you mean. Loyales do not have a BOV unless someone added one. (Not very useful on a stock engine.) If you are talking about the intake box and in-fender "snorkus", there is no practical gain to be had in modifying it.
...also has anyone done any mods to there loyale BOV intake muffler?...

+1. Your car is an oddball for parts-counter people. This is one case where you do not want to confuse them with facts.
order for a turbo with manual trans. this will guarantee a 25 spline axle
BOVs are not terribly useful at such low boost... unles you consider "useful" to mean makes a noise that you like and screws up the mixture (by venting already-metered air to atmosphere).
A recirculating valve (forgot the more proper name...) would function better, but without the boy-racer sound and without the mixture going wonky. But still not much use at stock boost pressures.

also I got the axle, I made sure it was a 25 spline and it fit and its PERFECT!

For various reasons, you will not get a "turbo spooling" sound from your EA82T unless you buy some special effects sound generator to make it for you. The BOV probably won't make any desirable sounds with the stock setup.
