    Right around 8, if you're not going higher it could be almost 9.5.

    bwhaha! I was thinkin the same thang!

    Of course, it makes about as much sense as a BOV on a stock engine..

    OP: save headache.. leave the stock bypass valve on. Metered-air cars don't like BOVs.

    do what you want to do, but its going to make you run really rich, also will decrease your gas mileage. my buddy has the TXS RFL bov and it sounds really good, but he idles a little rough, you can smell how rich it is, and its gas mileage is crappy. but its not 100% attributed to the bov. you're going to hear a lot of bashing on bov's here and a lot of misinformation and all that but i say do what you want, its your car.
