So the BOV needs to be before the AFM right? That's how the setup was when I got and haven't saw the need to change it

Here is how it should go.
Air filter, AFM, Turbo, intercooler, BOV, Throttle
and the outlet of the BOV should vent into the intake pipe for the turbo AFTER the AFM, and BEFORE the turbo.
Apparently, you and mazpr are running blow-through AFMs, which makes no sense...

Ok I gotcha. The PO had it run like that and I haven't had any issues so far so I'll leave it that way

Perty much but I almost never drive the car for this reason and figured I'd take the motor out for a rebuild before I put the standalone on it

If the last video seems too long at the beginning, at least start from 2:40 where he is running against a Hayabusa.

Embeding the videos did not work, so I posted the links.

FYI: Car is not mine
