The bov on the intercooler has a purpose. The only difference is there are not any miatas running 40-50psi.
Cool story, bro.

I read that placing the BOV near the TB increases the response time, to the detriment of the turbo. The inverse was also proposed. I don't have any data to confirm this theory.

I put my BOV on the hot side piping just after the compressor. I went this way because I inject meth on the cold side piping just after the intercooler.

I had my friend weld it on the cold side before the TB like I had it before. I should get the pipes back this afternoon and if everything goes well I'll clean them up and install them tomorrow. I'll post pictures and I'll let you guys know if I feel a difference between my old starion and this cxracing one. I'll also let you guys know if my AIT dropped at all or increased. Thanks guys for your opinions.

From memory on my old MSM it was just before the throttle body, if that counts towards anything.
