    That's actually not a blow off valve.

    That's a bypass valve (TurboXS RBV34) that the previous owner didn't bother to use correctly. It's meant for use with TXS's FMIC. That tube hanging out the side is supposed to be be plumbed back into the recirculation hose.

    It doesn't have to be used with an FMIC does it? I could just dump it back in the the recirculation hose...right? ...thanks for clearing that up.

    It doesn't have to be used with a FMIC, but the dump tube won't reach the recirc hose.

    You can turn the assembly if you want. The previous owner had to get an adapter to fit that on a the TMIC. I believe there are 3 small bolts you can take off with an allen wrench to rotate it.

    I haven't really investigated it at all, but can that recirculation hose be replaced with say, a longer piece of hose without ridiculous custom modification? There are three small 3mm nuts that move it around.
