Thinking about putting a plumb back bov on my 99gt,
but I'm worried about stalling, running rich etc.

any suggestions?

cheers in advance

Plumb back is the factory standard setup, so you should hear a little "woosh" now with the resonator removed.

it's really quiet though,
thought an aftermarket bov might make it louder even if its plumbed back?
sorry, I'm kind of new to playing with turbo stuff haha

It will but will still be muffled by the corrugations in the stock intake as well as the panel filter itself. 50/50 bov will give you more noise but is illegal.

will a 50/50 cause running issues? or is it only full atmo that does that?

A big plumb-back like the GFB Mach1 will keep it running nicely, and give you a nice big whoosh back through the intake.
It allows a lot more air to be released faster to give more noise while still being legal.
