Another VF34 Question

When upgrading to a VF34 should you buy a blow off vavle then or stay stock mostly thinking of a GFB 50/50 vavle. Also before upgrading to a VF34 is it better to upgrade the clutch and flywheel so the car handle the power increase or is a stock setup ok?
My car is a daily driver, with no track running and I don't take off like a nut every time I get going if that plays a part in responses.

Thanks,
Chip

nope you don't need to get an aftermarket bov, but you should get a bigger tmic at least. oh and of course all the supporting mods, like sti pink injectors, fuel pump, and engine tuning. like ap, utec, and etc. currently I have the vf30 setup for my car and I love the power. driving the car around on the freeway is so much fun especially when you let the car go it's amazing how fast our cars can go 130mph from 65...in what felt like a sec...

depends on how much you want to boost, the stock bov will begin to leak after a certain amount of boost

I am currently running a stage two and I know to get bigger injectors and fuel pump. I am running stage two on the Cobb Accessport so whatever the boost level is raised to by running the VF34 mapp is the boost level i would be running.

I have another question. I found Sti injectors on south coast performance and they are only asking $109 for them. Are they the right injectors because every other website I looked on was asking like $400 for them? Is $109 to good to be true or what is the deal?

to be truthful I needed money. so i bought a set then I ended up selling. Didn't even get to enjoy it =( But to help answer ur question chip just ask them to be sure thats it's the sti "pink" injectors and not the normal usdm sti injectors because those won't fit your car. Oh and I wouldn't mind another bov...hahah might get one again soon...hahah
