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 !! :cool:

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

what ever came of this? id love to swap out the bov
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

I will have the parts next week for the cold pipe and I will see if there is anyway that we can add a bov onto the new pipe. I don't think there will be enough room from what a source has told me lol

That hose is pretty short. Not much room to work with.... I think if you want a bov, spend a little extra and do a fmic then it will give you extra room to add a bov....

One last question. Since your running more boost did you have to do anything to your fuel system?

No. Just because your running some more boost does not mean your in need of a different fueling system
Now when you start getting all crazy then yeah
But to my knowledge unless your going 300+ theres no need to even consider upgrading your pump
Not sure if you know how our system works being GDI
You have a low side fuel pump
(Like any other vehicle)
Now the difference here is this low side pump feeds a high pressure pump thats bolted directly onto the valve cover. This pump rides off the exhaust cam and creates pressure 2000psi and up
From there when the low psi is converted to high psi its injected directly into the cylinder. Unlike conventional engine where the injectors are mount on the intake right where it bolts to the head
There is an availavle upgraded lpfp for our vehicles, and there is a hpfp upgradr somewhere in our future.
But as i said there is no reason to even worry about fuel just because you have a few bolt ons and a tune.
