Default Recirc BOV Parts...

OK.... I had been doing VTA for couple of months.

Yes, very rich between shifting
Yes, Drivability does becomes minor becking
Yes, with alot of heat... my BOV spring is floating, and causing some problem.

I am tired of this crap... and need to recirc. my BOV.

Greddy BOV RS is used.

here are the parts I am dealing with.
- 1 inch dia. pooling hose
- Copper reducer 1" to 6/8"


What do use for bonding Greddy Aluminum Intake pipe and this Copper Nippler reducer???

I work for Elmer's Glue, and I am trying on some of the new DIY adhesive line on it.
- Automotive Epoxy Putty - Failed, the compound was too putty to get into the tread.
- STIX-ALL (GEL)- I am using it now, but have not yet tested for heat resistent Property. (my fingers are crossed)

Can't find JB WELD in Hong Kong!

can you get 3M products or any cold weld? even just some silicone sealer or expoxy should work....

Braineack, Thanks. For what you said if silicone sealer or expoxy would work..... I think Elmer's Stix-all would be more then sufficient for the job!

Thanks,

so the threads of that fitting are going to project into the intake pipe?
weld a nut to the intake pipe and thread the fitting on. put a little teflon tape or thread sealant on both sides of the fitting.

it's a simple weld. there's someone/some business that will do it for you. go to a body shop, machine shop, pretty much anywhere that repairs vehicles of any kind
