    On a DSM BOV you can crush the top to get it to hold more boost. If you do it to much you will ruin it though.

    BOV woes.. help please.

    Ok here is the deal its a friend of mines car.. Im pretty sure its around a 03.. He had a shop install a used motor because he blew his.. They installed the bov that came with the engine set . It was recirculated but would randomly blow off .. lol So he bought a HKS seq Im pretty sure it s knockoff but anyways I installed it and now his car sounds like a superchargered beast under full boost .. Extremely loud whinde.. The bov doesnt appear to have a prodominate leak while reving it up and trying to hold it in higher rpms.. But It also only boosts 9lbs now and it holds 9lbs firm.. WTF any suggestions.No flames just answers please.

    Right where the vacum line is for the bov there is a ghetto rigged t for the boost gauge. Could a slight vacum leak there cause this problem? Also we went to the hardware store and bought a plastic plug and a hose clamp and just used that on the recirc tube for the time being .. Could either of these be the prob..? I have no clue about subbies sorry.
