I put in a HKS SS BOV welded on a hard pipe above the filter, i was told that u should take out the stock BOV, and it will be louder as well. IS this true? Should i leave the stock BOV in or take it out?
I mounted mine in the stock location...no stalling, no wierd idle....nothing, just nice loud blow off! Now I have seen someone put a bov before the compressor once, of course his ran like crap, and he blew up both his turbos due to compressor surge haha, he seemed to have no idea about how these things work, he was just good at welding.
See I am worried about stalling since my car is an auto.. (have to stop to restart the car) .... anyways... if I mount the BOV on the stock location, such as the BLitz dual drive, and vent it to the atm, will I have to worry about stalling... ???
I have a greddy BOV on my car and yes I do have stalling and idle problems that piss me off. If you aren't having any of those problems than keep the stock on. trust me, the bov is only slightly louder than stock. I just hate those stalling problems that come with it. that's just my 2cents.
But if you adjust it too much in one way you will [email protected]%# up your turbo barrings and too mcuh in the other way will cause a boost leak so it seems to be hard to find that perfect spot.
By the way I have a hks BOV also and noticed it leaking a little under a boost leak test and its also mounted in the stock locastion and sometimes I notice it not opening up when in turbo transition states, around 3krpm and 4krpm if I only tap on the trottle, in sequential of course and I get a weird hesitation/light jerk!
Thats why I get frustrated though because I can't tighten it any more because its already a little laggy at those points and I do not want to loosen the spring because I already noticed it leaking in the pressure test and I don't want it to cause stall problems.
Right now I do not have stall problems but I do have a wacky idle, any suggestions?
Don't NGK 3330 cause your idle to fluctuate a little?
Hey Check out this great plumbing job!!
I have the same BOV. I never had any problems with my car running any different. Big problem is if you have a OBDII
If you don't run your blowoff back into the system, it blows gas down your engine walls, not good. I installed a recirculating system where you can have it either way, just by turning a cock valve and opening the vent. There are some days you want to really sound good.
The hks bov works differently than most. It operates with a pull valve instead of a push. This means that tightening the bolt does nothing more than prolong when it releases. It will not seal any better. If you take it appart you will see what I mean. As for it leaking, I am not sure what would cause that. The only thing that comes to mind is the rubber seal inside of it that seperates the aluminum case from the plastic center piece.
CHINEEZE TWIN TURBO,
If it is louder near the throttle body, then I would think it was realeasing more air. Wouldn't this save the turbo more than even having the bov right after the turbo? Wouldn't releasing the pressure right at the throttle body stop any pressure stalling the turbo?
Please tell me if I am way off here because I will soon be making this choice on my car. The other thought I had was to put one in both locations. What does everyone think?
During my subframe restoration I broke both of my rear abs sensors. They were seized in the hub. It seems they are impossible to find in Europe.
I'm wondering if the sensors from another model fit the Supra. For example the sensors from the Rav4 and Yaris look almost identical in the...
Just traded for my first manual 94 Supra Twin. I checked all of the vin tags and confirmed it is a twin. My car does not come with the traction switch in the console. I'm not sure if the previous owner removed it or if it was an option for the dealer. Can anyone confirm if this?
I’ve been reading supra forums for months and months now. Love this page, and this is my first post.
I’m about to port my vvti head and I have some questions pertaining to the valve guides.
So, assuming my guides are within spec (it’s a low mile motor), what are your professional...
Note: Car was perfectly fine before it’s last wash getting it ready for a photo shoot.(engine bay was sprayed with water).
So I’m driving to the photo shoot location and I start noticing a misfire. The longer I drove it progressively got worse to the point where I would just get pretty good...
I'm having trouble removing the banjo bolt on the fuel pump assembly. Tried everything I could think of besides an impact wrench. Wanted to ask some folks if that was a good idea or not? I'd really appreciate any insight you can offer.
To be clear and avoid miscommunication I found...
