BOV

ok, this may sound dumb to a lot of you, especially froma guy like me who has been playing with turbo cars since 96 but i have never run a BOV before. i just picked up a cheap one from ebay hoping that it might help solve my problem with IC hoses blowing off. i see nowhere to adjust it - is it just a plug and play kind of thing? i keep seeing people posting about adjustable bovs and i'm a bit confused. anyone want to shed some light?

not all are adjustable... some just have a vacuum plug in and thats about it. I think alot of bypass valves are built this way.

Yep-those cheap ones like the famous plasic bosch ones have no adjustments on them. Just a vacuum line plus an inlet and outlet.

For tubes blowing off, you can put a dot of weld on the end of the tube. Actually two dots approx 180 degrees from each other. That will give the clamp something to bite. Are you using proper Tbolt clamps?

put some hair spray on the piping before slipping on the silicone and bolting it down. It helps the silicone grip the piping much better.

I actually ran without a BOV the first year I had my setup and had no issues blowing off intake hoses. T-bolt clamps + welded beads (or bead rolled) ends should do the trick.

Well, it's not the cheapest bov, but it wasn't pricey either. Some place here in Ontario makes it...seems like a forge knock-off. I think I solved my ic hose problem by taping my pipes together with aluminum ducting tape before sliding the coupler over. Can't weld a lip...remember I'm using abs piping lol.

Anyway, here's the valve....
