    Yo Sinister, If this is about the question i asked, ya know it would have taken you a quarter of the time that it took you to write this to just answer the question. my question was if some intakes make a slight BOV sound....im not concerned about anything...its not on my car...just wondering, way to be a **** about it.

    P.S. I did you the search on the menu bar...it brought me to this thread, and im not about to read through the entire BOV thread that started in 2001.

    I would delete this if I were you. It should have come with instructions. I really hope your serios and not messing around. But I'll tell you how.

    1) make sure you have an adapter flange.
    2) remove stock BPV on the I/C, 2 12mm bolts, 1 "pinch" hose clamp, 1 vac line, don't lose or rip or gouge the gasket.
    3) install new BOV onto flange
    4)Plug recirc hose with hose plug, use new wrom type clamp aka screw in type
    5) take gasket and put between I/C and BOV
    6)Bolt on new BOV, make sure you haven't lost the triangluar gasket and is seated properly
    7) Hook up the vac. live to the nipple the size of the ID of the vac. line.
    8) start up the car, make sure the idle is steady, if not you have a leak.
    9) go drive it, make noise, and make sure that your rpms don't drop off when you shift to neutral
    10) come back on the forum, read stickys, FAQ, or SEARCH!!!
    11) install stock BPV



    I don't know why I did all this typing!?! I could have been a D**KHEAD and said just search, or just gave him a simple link with no other words

    Thats why you should have stuck with the stock BPV. Thats a known issue with BOV's.

    yah put in the gasket. everything. one prob is that the ssqv is a knock off . it doesn't have the spring adjuster so i think the bov is leaking prematurelly and i don't know how to adj it ><
