your gonna get flamed for this but...venting to the atmosphere is wasting air that the mas has already counted. So it will in turn run rich...

man what the hell are you talking about, a bov is a bypass valve.Looks like you need to do some research before you even think of adding any peformance mods to your dsm.Just get rid of the stock bov and buy a 1g bov!

Im talking about bypass = the air vents back into the intake, blow off = vents into atmosphere

You need to search.

You're car won't run right if you vent to the atmoshpere unless you spend the money to go with a blow-thru setup. If you want to vent to the atmosphere just for the cool sound you can do it but I don't understand it. Vent back into the intake, Hack the MAF and the airbox and the sound will be more noticeable and teh car will run fine.
