    It's pretty easy for somebody with basic mechanical skills.

    The cost depends on whether you buy new/used, the year and model of the car, and where you buy it from (i.e. dealership, parts place, etc). If I were you, I'd try and find somebody that isn't as smart as you and is in the process of putting a BOV on the car and getting rid of the BPV.

    First off, what kind of BOV is it? Do you have an adaptor plate?

    Second. Put BOV boack in box. Find receipt. and take it back.

    Thrid. Take that money and buy a down-pipe.

    Fourth. Search on a proper mod path.


    I only say this because I ASSUME that your car isn't heavily modified enough to actualy need a BOV. If it was your probably wouldn't be asking this question.

    Not to be a D**K but I am only trying to save you some money and flaming from other members. A BOV won't be necesary untill you are pushing more than 21psi and have around 350+whp.

    Here is the thread you should look at - be sure to read about the negative effects of a BOV before you look at the installation instructions:

    its cool black, thats what i came here for to get straight up answers. its a greddy valve i have the adapter too. ive read the negative things, but i like the sound. call it stupid if u wish. i have an idea of where it goes. its the waste gate on the intercooler correct me if im wrong please. but i cannot figure out how it fits between the intercooler and manifold.

    Greddy type rs

    i just bought a greddy type rs for $40 ,the only problem with it was that the gasket that goes between the bov and the flang was busted, i was just wondering what might have couse it to bust, i opend up the bov to inspect the inside, evrything seems to be in good shape.im guessing the dude who had it had the bov adjusted to hard.
