has anyone ever heard of a bcs breaking? its on a stock 02 wrx. does anyone know a way to test to make sure yours is still working properly? can an sti one be used on a wrx without a tune? thanks for the help much appreciated.

I have heard of some going bad. I do believe sti and wrx ones should be interchangable atleast to test out the fact if your original one is broken or not.

If it is broken, it will only boost 8 PSI, even in 5th. lol

Yes, you can swap an STi one in. Same body style is best to make sure it mounts the same.
