Default Got My HKS BOV installed today! Pssssssshhh!

Installed it this morning, only took about 2 hours total. It fits really nice installed after the intercooler before the trottle body. Just enough room. And man is it ever loud! It sounds so cool, the way every turbo engine should sound. Pics Below





I'm gonna try to get some sound clips posted soon too.

Matt

Hey Matt good job! That's one thing more I need to do but probably not till June. Could you e-mail what Hector charged for just the BOV? Thanks Jeff

If you install it under the car, the dealer might not notice it. Reality of the fact is that they should encourage you to install one. It prolongs the life of the turbo, just as the turbo timer does. The turbo timer and BOV are not HP adders, they just prolong the life of teh turbo and the BOV greatly enhances throttle response after a shift.

Yeah, if he goes in with a bad brake caliper it will be blamed on the BOV on there.

Not worried about the warranty at all really. If something major were to happen, the first thing I would do is order a new stock IC hose and change it back to stock. No biggie.

Im getting really sick of posts that turn into "what about my warranty?", Then dont do any modifications if your so worried about it...

Matt

I guess I'm touchy,touchy ,too! 1)Nobody says anyone "has " to do any mod that is posted here . 2)Most engine mods have the potential to void your warranty . If you're satisfied the way the car runs then ,don't screw with it ! 3)When someone posts a mod ,don't you think they have thought about how it affects their warranty ...I certainly do . I for one love my PT ,but think DC has short-changed us on the performance side and I understand that I have the potential for voiding my warranty. But when you have a turbo and it barely holds 10psi boost in stock trim and takes forever to recover after a shift. I'll spend $50.00 to get a more responsive engine any day . If you've been reading all these posts then you understand that after installing boost control the next step is to install an aftermarket bov! Why 'cuz the DC setup is an accident waiting to happen..read exhaust depot's post about what the stock bov has the potential to do to your turbo over the long haul . I'll step off the soapbox ,now !
