    Adapter for aftermarket BoV(HKS/Greddy/etc)

    Apparently no adapter currently on the market will make a custom BOV such as HKS, greddy , turbonetics fit bolt on, on our car !! Because we're lacking space in that area, it's located in a bad spot.

    Is it possible for any of the vendors to work on it ? I'd be glad to install that HKS SSQV asap.

    TL;DR: Please make a custom adapter for aftermarket bov.

    Please, pretty please !!

    You could just do what I did and get a cheap one off ebay and stick a screw in the bov to hold it open and use the stock rcv hose and plumb it to the bov to get the bov sound. ghetto but it turns heads and people think I'm pushing some Subaru setup lol

    Is the stock BPV with no hose not loud enough??? Maybe look into doing a diy front mount and then you can have a aftermarket BOV. IMO, I wouldn't cheap out though, spend money on a good one or keep the stock BPV.

    If you want to keep the stock intercooler, you will need to upgrade the stock cold pipe(hose) .
    Here is a pic of a veloster turbo, keep in mind their intercooler set up is a little different.... I think our's is more 90*.... I don't think that straight adapter would work, you would need to get a 90* pipe and weld a flange onto it. Also would need to block off the stock BPV.

    You can make your own cold pipe and have the bov on it. You need the block off plate for the stock on like the veloster guys use
