? on BOV placement..

I was wondering the best location for the BOV as far as placement wise.. would it be fine on the intake piping close to the TB or do you want it more near the intercooler?

Any help would be great! Thanks.

Was thinking somewhere along these lines.. (BOV in place of red circle)

Closer to the TB the better.

It's relieving pressure from when the TB closes, so the closer
to the TB the quicker it will respond and put less stress on the system.

Circled location is good spot.

Awesome, thanks for the response. Just was debating on which to buy depending on if it was to be mounted in a hidden location or visible.

If you put it past between the MAF and the engine, you will need to route the blown off air back into the system. It is already metered.
More typical is to run the MAF after the IC and the bovs before the IC.

I like the BOV between the turbo and intercooler. This way the turbo will be "relieved" sooner.

So run the BOV on the piping from I/C to turbo?

I always put them between the turbo and the intercooler because you would vent the hot air before it reaches the intercooler.
