I think they installed the BOV wrong on that car.

I like the downpipe, looks massive.

I don't like the turbo standing so far off the motor.

Tim I'm thinking you need a similiar auction eBay.

Like Olderguy/Bruce! haha actually I think some do that so it holds more boost; the pressure in the charge pipe isn't pushing the piston up. I think the HKS BOV is designed like this. I think it's wrong to do it like that...unless you have a really restrictive intercooler or something that causes an unusually large pressure difference between the bottom (charge pipe) and top (intake manifold after the throttle body) of the BOV that overcomes the spring pressure when the car is under boost.

Otherwise under boost there should be the same pressure on each side of the BOV piston (same surface area). The spring (with very light preload) on top keeps the piston down and the BOV shut.

I run my old style FM piston BOV with very little spring preload and it doesn't leak and vents when it should (basically almost all the time when not under boost). OK enough on my theory of BOV function.

Me neither, but it does fit with all the crap under the hood of the MSM and allows a nice DP.

Nice price for what you get; the photos are of the more expensive stainless version.

I would sell my stuff on eBay (or here) more officially IF I knew it fit with accessories and I had a DP jig. Maybe once I get in the new house and have time/space for that sort of thing.

I can assure you it fits with the washer fluid bottle in the stock location on an NA.

As a data point, if you advertised more officially I might have gone to you for a kit instead of bell since you're semi-local. If I had to do it again I definitely would have inquired as to your prices, it probably would have saved me some headache and time, and maybe money, but who knows? I guess as you seem to be doing custom work that it would hard to pin down a price for a kit though.

The mani looks great, but I just hate that turbo placement, it looks terrible imo.
It also looks like it won't do jack **** for a EWG.

A tube for the external WG would be so easy to mount on the back side of that manifold, it would also be easy to dump or recirc the WG into the downpipe at that location. I like it.
