Heres what the inside of a fake Greddy BOV looks like











It's hard to see but on the diaphragm thing, there is a little half inch white line that runs across the section that "folds". This is a area where its very thin and the light is shining through. I'm not sure how this will affect the function. I could always replace it.



I washed the parts then put a little bit of caliper grease on the seals and shaft



I've started taking apart the turbo for cleaning and at this point and am thinking about just going ahead and rebuilding it. I've realized that when I clock the turbo I'll have to figure out how to connect the waste gate actuator to the flapper.



I don't get it, some bolts are there, some not..

Fake Greddy BOV
I have the same bov on my desk. Makes a great paperweight.

The adjustment screw on top is just to prevent it from opening 'too much' or you can tighten it down to where the valve doesn't open at all. Be sure to use a nut on the adjustment or it'll move freely and not attempt to seal at all. Also, It's a piece of junk. If it is open too much you may have idle issues.

Did your bov not function?

I thought maybe the adjustment would be to adjust the psi threshold to release the pressure or sumthin

It functioned poorly with leaks @ idle and off boost. MAF was not happy.

The adjustment literally goes up or down and limits the travel on the black shaft you greased up.

*edit

The fix was to purchase a legit greddy FV BOV. At the time I was able to grab a limited edition red/chrome FV valve. Seals at idle/off boost. Goes Chooo

Err... Okay well I hope it holds but if not I'll pick up a 1gen dsm one I guess. And I'll have a new ornament lol. Might be fun to try to mod the fake one to work.

I know it wanst you, your the guy with the chambourd bottle lol. I just didn't want to post a pic of you.

Funny you like the s10 crowd, they are worse than miata.net in my opinion.

I remember when you got that beetle to, we all thought you were gay.
