Unless you are running a standalone ECU (HKS FCON Vpro, Motec), or a seperate MAP instead of MAF sensor,
i would not recommand any aftermarket BOV to be used with the X. The trouble that comes associated with an
aftermarket BOV install on a stock Evo X ECU (ECUflash, ECUtek included) is not worth the sound that you get
with its install.

Recirculate mode or not, you will trigger a P1241 torque overload at partial throttle cel due to the sensitivity
of the stock ECU's torque limiting restriction. Personally, I've experienced this infamous issue with my HKS SQV3.
Removing the HKS BOV and reinstalling the stock BOV eliminated the problem immediately.

My HKS SQV3 BOV is now sitting in one corner, while I'm enjoy a more stable ride with the stock BOV (which i hear is so good it can withstand
up to 400 wheel BHP) without so much as triggering a P1241 CEL whenever I go soft on the throttle.
