Best Place To Attach Bleed Valve?


Recommended Posts

Ive tried at the manifold where the blow off valve vacume comes from and at the intercooler pipe near the air filter.but never tried at the inlet for the turbo where it says put it for a manual bleed valve.

should i put it on the turbo inlet?where the original connection is on the the oil breather pipe.

It doesn't really matter where it goes on the pressure side of the intake tract- as long as you're actually taking a gauge/meter boost reading after the throttle body, and the wastegate is getting a line signal that allows consistent control of that boost pressure.

but just before the turbo mouth(inlet) has to be different preasure than whats in the intercoola pipes?you would think?

yes, it most certainly is (p.s i think you mean the little angled hose connector on the compressor cover, because in front of the turbo inlet, you'll see vacuum)

the line pressure down there may be 3psi or more higher at the compressor cover than it is by the time the air suffers all the parasitic losses on the way through the intercooler and all the piping on the way to the engine

but did you read my whole post?

it matters nought what pressure is in the actuator line running to the wastegate, as long as you are taking an acurate boost reading from the intake manifold after the throttle body (you'll need to use a spare vacuum port somewhere there, or tap on in if there isn't one available)

after you do that, all you need to do then is to tweak the bleed valve for more/less pressure bypass until you get the desired manifold boost pressure :)

    • Here is my 2013 Nissan Skyline 370GT Type-S has a factory Nismo exhaust and Enkei rims. Shes completely unmodified. Brought her from Cult & Classic and drove down from NSW to Tassie November last year. 
    • Yet another thread bump because I want to talk about this: The general gist that this guy found for a MK7 Golf GTI is that by adding a venturi from a 2022 Tiguan he managed to pull crankcase vacuum far more reliably under boost which effectively stopped oil consumption on his engine in track conditions. An earlier video details how that venturi works: Basically one port is atmospheric vent, one port goes to a boost source, and the last port goes to the crankcase vent. There's a lot of discussion on here about scavenge pumps and all that fun stuff, why not try to replicate that by pulling some energy off the compressor? There is one catch though and that is that the PCV diaphragm on these cars appears to completely block off airflow from the intake when there is enough crankcase vacuum. This contrasts with the RBs where there is basically nothing stopping vacuum from the intake from sucking a big gulp of oil if it gets into the crankcase vent.
    • Hi All, Brought a 4 Door 2013 Skyline 370GT Type-S in November last year. Absolutely loving the car, noticed a few audio issues speakers cutting in and out and the 12V circuit seems to be completely dead (after checking and swapping the fuses) but just wanted to say Hi     
    • Could you please express this thought again with some clarity added?
    • So, whilst the Bogan Cruise Ship is GTG, and I had organised some time today to go on the SAU NSW cruise, my best laid plans where kicked in the balls, well, kicked in my right knee to be exact Now, after a bit of arthroscopic "honing" and tibial band lengthening "modifications" , I'm sitting on a couch in a prescription induced drug haze, watching 5hit on the Youtubes and falling in and out of consciousness......good times
