    pop off the stock, put the flange thing on there. (the 2 bolts you see on the sides) then the bov secures on to the flange via a few small bolt type things that go around the base of it. (you use an Alan key to secure them, so I dont know the exact correct word) Then plug up the hose back to the intake with the black plug that is supplied in the adapter kit. Put the hose on top of the bov and secure, done.



    Oh and you probably want to lube up the piston with some WD40 to prevent it sticking open or closed.

    i don't have one, but i've heard them and they are LOUD. like a whip crack X 100. of course, you run the risk of running rich, same as any BOV though. i have the Forge 100% atm and i like it alot. loud, but not crazy loud.

    im looking for a BOV that wont blow off under normal conditions (shifting below 3k) thats why the TXS type h rfl is good- i dont care how loud it is when im on it. How much did you pay for your forge and from where?

    To be honest with you, I've had the forge and the HKS... and the HKS has remained on...

    I took off the forge after 2 weeks. it got annoying, REAL quick. It leaked boost (yes you can fix that with different springs, but that still didn't work for me)... and it just wasn't as good of a sound as the HKS.

    The HKS doesn't leak, and it sounds awesome
