Default Mopar BOV installed.

My thanks to those who stated that a ratcheting box end wrench was the ticket. I bought one ahead of time, and it was easy. I did struggle with the oil line, but I got everything from topside. I was even able to use an inch pound torque wrench to torque the two outside bolts to spec (in the instructions). The other had to be torqued by feel.

One thing that I think is important is to make sure there is clearance between the oil line and the bolt AFTER the installation. Mine was rubbing. I was able to bend the line just about a quarter inch away from above. You don't want to have that bolt eat through the oil line.

Note: If I had bent the oil line ahead of time it would have been much easier to start that one inside bolt.

Great tips, thanks! I'm gathering all the info I can on the intricacies of this intallation, like the ratcheting box wrench, so this little tidbit is very welcome!

I also found that if you loosen the bolt next to
the oil line first then remove the other two completely,
you can swing the bov down to give you a little more room
to get the rear one out. When you reinstall start the back
one first. Worked for me along with a few choice words of
encouragement.

I didn't add any gasket sealant on mine. I haven't had any problems yet, but it's only been on since Saturday. What are the symptoms you're having? Can't hold boost?

Some on the SRT board reported a slight loss of boost. Using the RTV fixed it.
