Unless the fmic you get is flanged for your bovEven if you plan to do a fmic it's not a waist of money. You get rid of the possibility of the stock one tearing and not holding boost proper. With the stock one I still had a slight wave effect and with this one I dont.
If you plan to get one in the next few months then yeah its pointless.
It looks as though it is fitted with a standard HKS SSQV t-adapter in 2" aluminium with a straight 2" silicone joiner to the factory intercooler outlet and a 2"-2.5" silicone elbow (45 degree?) to the throttle body.Any ideas on how he put the BOV on in the video above or if it's even worth doing? Probably a noob question, sorry.
Not to fond of using stainless steel for a cold pipe seeing how it holds heat more but in this case there will be so little exposed you might be fine. Some might suggest just buying the pipe and spending a little extra on a good BOV.I'm thinking of buying this: ebay item#171975811343.
It will be way too long for the gap you have. And if you cut it down, then you need to roll the lips again so that the joiners will stay on.I'm thinking of buying this: ebay item#171975811343.
A 45deg silicone hose just wont flex enough. It bends and folds flat on itself. I have tried this.So got all my parts in today to make the cold pipe tomorrow. Got the 45* that will need to be cut to angle it more towards a 60*.
I also spoke with David at K5 about the HKS BOV. It is the one that is supposed to sit right on top of the factory intercooler. That setup is for the VT not the Forte so he is going to remove it from the site. Just wanted to give a heads up so no one gets one and then it doesn't fit
