Default Greddy BOV Flange block off plate? cant find anywhere.

I need a block off plate for a greddy Blow off valve 2 bolt flange. i cant seem to find one anywhere, or my googlefu is not strong enough.

since im going with an EFR, which has a built in re-circulation valve, i took off the BOV, but now need a plate to block it off.

here is the flange pic:


I 3d printed one, but i dont feel it will hold up under boost. need a metal one

Would probably be easy enough to trace that onto a 1/4 piece of steal. cut it, drill the 2 bolt holes silicone it and bolt it in place?

or just have a local welder weld it shut for like $20
or replace the tube for probably like $20
either way you're out no more than something like this would cost

Use the BOV as a template. Trace the footprint onto a piece of steel or aluminum. 20 minutes with an angle grinder and drill. Done.

I used a miata thermostat gasket on mine, so im led to believe the front water neck block off would be perfect.

I had this one CNCed by an aeropsace company a while back.

thanks for the suggestion, i was kinda trying to avoid cutting my own, and rather pay $20 bucks for a precut one. but i guess i have no choice.

only cutting tool i have is a dremel.

ill use the gasket as a template, which is what i did with my 3d printed plate. and cut it out of aluminum.

Ahhhhhh, gotcha.




If I were in your shoes, I'd just have a welder cut the old extension off and weld a aluminum circle or thick cap on there for cheap.

You could tap and thread it for the EFR bov reference possibly if you don't end up using the source on the compressor... Ya know, for those mad spools x11

and ding ding ding ding ding, i think we have a winner!!

just measured my Thermostat water neck block off plate, and its indeed very close dimensionally to the greddy flange, i am sure i can make it work with a bit of dremmeling.

THANK YOU.
