    1) Yes, that is exactly what I'm saying. It will NOT and can NOT fix the issue.

    2) Yes a 50/50 would help a little.

    This is the only true remedy for running rich due to aftermarket BOV.

    Or you switch to a blow through MAF setup.Or you can buy a Utec or stand alone and go speed density (MAP based fueling).Not worth it unless your running big power anyway of course.

    I would refer to the actual instructions (or web site) of the specific manufacturer of the BOV you want to use, to see if any additional materials would be needed to replace the stock bypass valve.

    I would advise you to read this link. Additionally, you may want to explore the links in my signature.
