Default Blow off valve.

Hey cruisers, I was wondering where one could find a hard up-pipe for my cruiser. If it has a Bov flange already welded on etc....Im not looking for the mopar plate. Thanks.

Performance auto parts & aftermarket auto accessories for your car, specializing SRT4, Crossfire SRT6, SLK32, C32 AMG, VR-4 will have one, made to order but they're a bit pricey.

DEJON | Powerhouse is where I got mine, and you can buy it with a flange already welded on. I got mine welded on later down the road because I wanted to use the pipe already and didn't have the funds for a BOV yet. When the time came, I bought an HKS SSQV BOV and welded the flange onto the pipe and installed it.

Btw, make sure that whatever pipe you get..if you plan on welding the flange yourself get the same-type metal flange as your pipe. The aftermarket pipes are mild-steel whereas some BOV manufacturer's provide an aluminum flange, that's a no-no you'll want a steel flange to weld onto the steel pipe.

Are you going to be running high boost cause otherwise you don't need it unless you are putting it on for show. Does look and sound cool, though. Won't be any performance benefit with just stock boost.

thanks I really appreciate it. My cruiser is now stage1, and I also figured it would stop the fluttering of my turbo when letting of the gas. Also I know how to weld and was planing on doing it myself. I have seen people try to weld aluminum with steel and I just shake my head and say, cant say I didn't warn you.I actually make gas tankers for semi's to haul fuel. Im the lucky guy who has to crawl inside em and weld the baffles. But it does get me away from everyone...

I know this is an old thread, but through DEJON | Powerhouse Would I have to buy both the UPIC-PTA & the UPIC-PTB or could I just buy the UPIC-PTA (with flange) and run it down to a stock tube?

I'm obviously new at this so I have no idea, thanks ahead of time Kawiz!

Only getting half would defeat the purpose, as the stock portion would still balloon out before letting the boost pass on. If you want just a BOV, you can always get a small piece of pipe and weld the flange on it and put it where ever you can fit it in your stock pipe.

Just remember before cutting up your stock piece that it's kind of pricy to replace (think it's in the $150's)
