Default OEM BOV anyone have pic's or drawings?

[:I]I figured with everyone replacing the OEM BOV with mopar BOV that someone would have pictures or schematics.I was curious as to what the BOV consisted of ( all the internal parts )and how it would be different from the mopar BOV.I also had seen in the forums a "surge valve" reference, but not sure where it is or what it looks like.The SRT forums make references as well, but so far no one has posted actual pictures.Hope someone can help, thank you.

The hardest part would probably be accessability. The pic above pretty much tells you all you need to know. Just slips between. I installed one on my SRT and it was kind of a pain to fit a wrench in there. Probably the same on the Cruiser. Of course, its all worth it once its done.

I understand one for the bolts is easily accessible from underneath the car, so can all 3 bolts be removed from underneath? I'm having a friend install my sway bars next week. Since my car will be on a lift, we might as well do the BOV as well.

Also, can someone provide a pic of where it should be changed? The above photo is great, but it's too close, so I can't tell where to look. The diagram on the instructions are blurred, so it's hard to tell.

One last question, So the Mopar is a replacement of the stock? I thought it was just added, not replaced?

[:I]sakigt,the picture looked great, but I am trying to see what the internal parts of the OEM bov consists of and how the air pressure is routed. I thought with so many people removing the OEM bov that someone would have taken the bov apart,unless it's modular and crimped. I am just trying to understand exactly how the unit works and then why other aftermarket bov's would be better. The mopar unit, or spacer just appears to be a noise maker. Thanks for the input.

The stock valve dumps the air back into the inlet to the turbo. The Mopar bov blocks the inlet and dumps the air to atmosphere. You can not take it apart and I would not try since you have to reuse it. They are all noise makers. The bov function is already there, this device just adds the noise.

[?]Thanks for the input ptgtcb. I really don't like noise anyway and if the OEM bov does what it's suppose to don't screw with it.My hang up is I like to see how things work, or how they were intended to function. Exploded view drawings or assembly drawings will tell the tale. Thanks again for the info.

Littlebluegt, the Mopar BOV has no internal parts. Just the blue adapter and a gasket. Accessible is a relative term. I could get at that bolt, the one near the oil line with difficulty. Use a 10mm ratchet and you can get it. An extra pair of hands to hold the oil line out of the way would help a lot to seat the last bolt better or more easily.

[:I]ptgt, I was making reference to the OEM bov. I figured that there was a spring closing a valve seat and when pressure was released the waste gate would start to open as I saw only one orange line.I was aware that the mopar bov was just a plate with no internal parts. thanks!
