Hi guys,

I bought my car with Turbo XS RFL BOV. Now it is venting into atmosphere and I need to recirculate it. I don't now how to do it because of the shape of BOV. Has anybody done recirculation on this BOV or do I need to change it into another one?



Thanx,
Adam

Yes Adam, you need to change it. In order to recirculate, you need to find a way to connect that "horn" to your intake pipe. So, unless you can weld a piece, it will not hold a tight enough seal no matter how you put in a hose. You could try to insert a large barb fitting or nipple in that horn and then put a hose in it? :)

or maybe I could cutt off that wide part of the 'horn' and then be able to put the hose on.
...if I only knew that son of a bitch who had my car before me...

well, I live in Lithuania - it would not be the easiest way to find a buyer for Turbo XS BOV here and to ship 1gen BOV from US.

The idea of cutting off the bell part of the horn might work. :) Just leave enough that you can get a hose over the remainder and get a clamp on it.

Ok guys,
just to let you know. I have cut off the bell part of BOV's horn and was able to put the hose on it and clamp it. It worked out very well. I am happy now. Car feels stronger.
I'll post some pictures of raped Turbo XS RFL BOV tomorrow. :)
