Well with 2000 miles on the new shortblock, I turned the boost up to around 17lbs. Figure that the engine is broke in by now( stock fuel system, 93 oct, +METH )

All of a sudden at around 110Mph, I let off the gas and BOOM. Heard a huge pop. Now immediatly there is a loss of preasure, and the RPMS are all over the place. TYhe throttle is not responsive, and I am only thinking. "My Gods I blew the FMS again"

Ironically, I blew the blow off valve, right off the car. It caused a small dent in my hood from underneath, chipped the paint on the top...

The BOV is the first ever HKS SSQ, so its kinda old, held by a spring/washer that sits in a groove. The flange and lip seems like its toast. Gonne get a new set up on monday. Was thinking of getting a blitz set up, they sound pretty beefy, note really big on the "mouse squeek" ones.. Any other suggestions?

I have a feeling that it was just the circlip not properly seated in the groove. Those things are a bitch...

Hey Todd, sorry to hear about your hood. I woulda shit my pants! Pretty much anything made by Tial is amazing for the price. The quality of their parts is great. If you want that whoosh sound...go with a Tial.

Can you post pics? I am curious to see this. I have never heard about the BOV coming straight off while driving

Glad it was nothing serious. I had the same thing happen on my old WRX. Let off throttle at 100MPH, heard a loud noise and the car instantly died. Pulled over, it wouldn't start. Turns out my piece of crap TurboXS BOV had blown right off the piping.

It was just that circlip, its a wicked out of date HKS, spring is worn. I worked that bitch back in tight, its handling 15lbs. I also loosened ( is that even a word? ) the spring a little.
I got my NEW blitz comming from speed for sale. I'll take some pics.. Who can I email them to that can post em for me?
