Recirc valve or not?

Just adding the IC to help the engine last longer, not looking for super power gains or anything. Still learning all this.

the stock system has a dashpot, or whatever, thats supposed to keep your turbo from hitting a brickwall, when your throttle plate slams shut... but a recirc would work better.
and it would obviousle look cool to have more plumbing under your hood... right:lol:

I have run a few different ones. the bosh units from VWs/Saabs work well but can make noise if not plumbed properly. I hve a ford(mazda) unit that I never used also.
the wrx one I have now is vented to the atmosphere and I dont like the little stumble it causes. it also cracks open a bit at cruise some times. I still run cats so I dont like that at all. plan to plumb it tonight if I can fab a flange.

Drkrazy- I have a couple different valves sitting around. if you need one and cannot find one local I would sell you one cheap. what type are you looking for?
the only problem with that intercooler is that although it fits verry nice. its not the most efficient design. but hey neither is the WRX unit I run. guess some intercooler is better than no intercooler. dam I wish I could have had a FMIC.
