Anywhoo, I ended up shaving some of the metal off the bov flange and off the intercooler so the bov would fit(with a dye grinder, a dremmel would work though). If you don't wanna do the grinding yourself, you could call turboxs and ***** till they grind it for you, or get a machine shop to do it for a few bucs.
On the note of calling turboxs... We have the same intercooler(I dunno if mine was a version 3 or not, or if there is a version 3 ) and different bov's. I'm pretty sure turbxs knows whats up with bov's not fitting on their intercoolers, unless it's just our two intercoolers. Here is an old post that I mentioned my experience in....
Who's Running TXS/Hyperflow TMIC?
Thanks for the reply -- im having a machine shop use my turbo xs bov flange and double up the flange for the greddy and having it welding together HOPE IT WORKS !!
