I have a Greddy Type S bov and it has a VERY thin nipple coming off of the back side. I know what the vaccum actuator on the front is for, but what the hell is that little nipple for?

Help please...

Sorry.

Couldn't resist...

Not sure about the Greddy nipple. It shows in the instructions. I believe it is for certain turbocharged applications. Check the MKIV.com site for install pics/manual pages...

Here's the rest of the "nipple" pic. I owe you. :D

I wish it looked like that. Believe me, I would know what to do with that nipple :)

I checked MKIV and couldn't find anything and I bought the BOV used, so no owners manual.

Any ideas?

If it's the one that connets to the bottom of the diaphram, it's for quicker release. You connect it to a source before the TB and when the throttle closes the BOV opens a little quicker because of the extra pressure under the diaphram. The downside is under high boost the valve will want to leak with the extra pressure forcing it open

I know the mini-mopar guys are using the similiar setup, somewhere on the web there's a site detailing putting a solenoid on the line going to the lower nipple so you can have quick release for daily driving and still avoid the leaking under max boost
