Added a few goodies today:
PRL charge pipe kit
Tial QRJ bpv
Crawford v3 AOS
Radium fuel feed line (to clear the AOS)

The dimensions on the qrj are much larger than the stock bpv, made it interesting getting the recirc setup. Had to mcguyver it at home depot.

I would think those mods would require a tune. I never modded my '15 WRX (except for an axleback) so I don't know how finicky the FA engines are.

PRL claims no tuning required. I'm sure it's just a matter of time until I have an accessport on the car. Still under 3k miles so I'm holding off as long as I can...

Shouldn't require any tune. Not losing any air anywhere since it's a bypass valve. FA's are just as, if not more, finicky than EJ's.

I recommend you stay away from bov/bpv until you can get a tune, even if manufacturer states no tune required.

Why do you say that? If the bpv is 100% recirc back to the intake, I don't see how there could be any problems? It's post MAF so the incoming air being measured is not affected?
My comment on the no tune was specific to the PRL charge pipes.
I don't have a wideband on the car but everything is running just like stock after the install, no issues.

I do like that set up, gold RPF1 on your blue STI would look sweet!
