    I found the graphite engine assembly lube at AutoZone. It comes in a little "mini-toothpaste" type tube. Cost ~$2. (btw I have a Worx)

    Used HKS BOV making funny noise

    Just installed, and sounds fine. But when I'm at WOT when I get above 10psi. It starts to sound like one of those whistle blower things. Almost like a reed(musicle instrument type). But only when I start to get above 10psi. Think maybe its leaking? I havent had a chance to do any real testing till tomorrow.
    Cant say I've hit full boost yet, but again i have had limited testing

    I think so. . Because no air is actually moving "through" the bov when it is closed (or when it should be closed), aka during boost. . .

    Bov Question

    i got a SSQV bov from a friend, and all he gave me was just the unit, and he told me i needed to go get some kind of plug for my hose to make it recirculate. i went to kragen, autozone, and a hardware store as my friend told me too, and all the workers were clueless in what i was asking for. can someone tell me what the item is that you stick in your hose, to make it recirculate. please show me pics, because i am totally lost, or what does the bov come with..

    Speak of the devil. Anyhows the normal HKS SSQV BOV runs completely 100% atmosphereic, it is not a recirculation BOV. you need a 1 INCH diameter metal or heat resistant plastic plug to plug the hose where the stock bypass valve uses to recirculate. It's a little left and below the mount where the BOV goes onto the IC. You'll need a hoseclamp to ensure that the plug doesn't fall out.

    NOW, if you want to run a 100% recirculation SSQV you'll need to buy HKS' specially made aluminum mount that goes in place of the air fin on the BOV. Take an alan wrench remove it and replace the fin with the little xtension that comes out of the hole. You'll need a 1 inch inner diameter hose that goes over the BOV unit, and have the hose connect back to the hose that you plugged. This makes your blow off valve 100% recirculation, however the unit to make it recirculation is sold separately.

    Hope this helps.

    With atmospheric you'll run rich between shifts, possibly damage your up pipe cat, send shards into your turbo and have you packing for a new one. You lose gas milegage and as a result of the recirculation hose plugged, you'll throw off your sensor. You'll feel a suden jerk when you release the gas or engage the clutch as a result of that. But you get one nice sweet "WOOSH" everytime you give off boost. The HKS one is particularly LOUD. With recirculation you negate every bad aspect of atmospheric BOV's but at the same time you lose your grandma scaring sound.

    If you want my opinion, sell it, and get the Greddy BOV, set it at 50/50 settle with a nice compromise and a nice BOV.

    Or store it and put the stocker back on, or sell it and put the stocker back on, get a few bucks and take your girlfriend out to dinner.
