    Driving with...

    Installed a PW intercooler and a new bypass valve. The hose that goes into the top of the bypass valve (runs to the intake manifold) is too short and all the stores are closed now. Can I drive the car a couple of miles (obviously not under boost or load) to get this hose? I am assuming it tells the bypass valve what the pressure inside the IM is.

    Yes it will be fine. Just plug off the vacuum hose with a small bolt or something.

    I've been wondering about what people do with the bpv hose. The hose is barely long enough to reach to my upgraded bpv on my stock intercooler. I don't see how it would fit on the huge PW intercooler.
