No, I'm using a ball bearing Power Enterprise PE1818F turbo. I'll hopefully install my STI injectors tomorrow morning and my PE fuel pump. Then I'll try to get my front mount intercooler in when I get some time. Car's coming together. I have a track day in June and want to have the car ready by May.

If there is no CEL issues, then I stand corrected. But I wouldn't say such if there were for no reason. Users on i-club have had such experiences. But as you said they could or could not be due to installation.

God sells parts. Vividracing.com sells parts.

Forge BOV noise???

I recently installed a Forge atmospheric BOV. When I'm driving the car and let off the throttle I hear a stuttering, multiple "psst, psst, psst, psst" instead of one quick "psst". I assume this means I have the wrong spring in the valve. Does this mean the spring is too strong or too weak? I was told the valve had the blue spring. Has anyone experienced this noise and if so, what spring/spacer combo have you had to use to fix this?

thanks,

Punk

When I first got mine, it would only release a full blow off at about 5-6k rpm. At anything lower, it was just a sputter. You need to get your hands on a weaker spring for the BOV. Contact the retailer you purchased it from, and they will send you the spring. I assume you got the bov from Atmosphere???

My Forge BOV does the same thing. It stutters if it vents at less than half of full boost. After installing an MBC it stutters less since I reach full boost sooner.

Turbo XS BOV? What are your thoughts.

I had one on my car for a while and I liked the noise it made and all. But I did not like the lag that it gave me inbetween shifts. It seemed like I had to really make sure I gave it a good amount of gas before I let the clutch back out. Also the car runs rich, so much so that you can see the tail pipes getting dirty from the unburned fuel.


My question: Does this only occur with the Turbo XS BOV or will this happen with any 100% Atmospheric BOV? Is there another BOV out there that is better?
