    Bov cel

    i installed my hks bov and bosal single tip the other night then yesterday my cel came on. the car runs fine do you think this is cuz of the bov making the car run rich. i also think my 02 sensor need replacing this could be it too right. if i dont replace the 02 sensor for a while will it do any harm? thanks

    Did you install just the catback exhaust? Does Bosal make a turboback? I'm not familiar with their products.

    Check the hoses and bolts around the BOV, make sure everything is secure.

    if it can't then it isn't worth the money you paid for it.

    Okay, disregard every other highly technical post on this thread, sorry dude...our mistake. I guess since it works for your individual case we can generalize about everyone else and disregard all the "my bov funked up my car" threads. Sorry about that, guess you're right after all!

    Im a little confused

    I have Greddy Boost gauge and it reads 1.0 kg

    I assumned it was bars but i guess not.

    I downloaded stage II and I hit 1.0 now with my MBC closed. I figured 1.0 was like 16psi and never cared to ask anyone.

    Can some one explain this to me.

    Actually, when I had my hks on I couldn't hold boost at all. My boost gauge would go up and if I held at whatever rpm I was at the boost would slowly drop off.

    Took it off, solved my problem and continued.
