I won the HKS SQV BOV replacement for the stock one, fits in the same place. I wish I'd never strayed from the stock BOV. My car is hard to tune properly with it . . . it dies occasionally after boost (indicating it's too loose), but it also shows signs of being too tight sometimes. It's rough to get running right. I want to eventually go with a stock BOV and mine welded into the intercooler piping . . . that should give me reliability and performance.

Why do you want an aftermarket BOV, BTW?

seems like the best bet is to keep the stock and weld the aftermarket on.

i just want the cool sound :) like everyone else ;)

thanks!

Lilviv, I found it just as hard to tune the HKS SSBOV as you do. have no idea how tight or loose I should adjust the screw. I sold me HKS SSBOV supra kit and put back stock BOV and it works pretty good. to my suprise it actually makes a loud sound under boost, almost sounded like BLitz.
I may buy another aftermarket BOV, but next time I will mount it on hard pipe just trying something new.
BTW, I am planning on keeping my stock BOV along with my aftermarket BOV jsut for safety reason.

check out the twin stock bov modification by Mohad on
www.mkiv.com tech section it is cheap needs no tuning works at low and higher psi and is Cheap and was fun to build ( cost me about 40.00 20 bucks for a used stock bov and 20 bucks for various copper pipes) BTW I thought you were going to sell you car?

I'm using both and had to set the VPC idle at around 5-6 o'clock to so the car wouldn't stall after letting off a high boost blast. I'm thinking I had this same issue before installing the BOV.

Also, tightening the screw seemed to help a little. This is supposed to make the pull-release valve operate freely(can't confirm this because I thought the opposite).

With the AC off the car appears to idle too low at times 600rpm. I think if I up the idle a tad, every thing will be fine.
