Stock BOV Plumback removal

Recommended Posts

I did once, got left off by axcident, not much happened , blow off was much louder, big whoosh. be carfull if you do because the return runs back in front of the turbo with nothing to stop crap getting in and hitting turbo wheel, say good bye if that happens. :Bang:

The pipe i think your talking about is the one about an inch in diameter going down towards the turbo? Thats the recirculation pipe it goes back into the pipe from your air filter and is plumbed in just before the turbo. If you take this off youll have to modify your pipe from air filter to turbo, either getting stainless piping or patching the stock one.

Just get a pod filter and leave the plumb-back in place, the sound will be almost as loud.

Hehe, i think a kazoo or something would sound pretty funny too.

ok i tried this the other day and yeah the car runs heaps rich. I loved the sound but....the car wouldnt idle properly and stalled most times i came to a stop. HOWEVER if u disconnect the vacuum line going from the inlet manifold to ur BOV and block it off then..... insted of pshhhhht its "FLUTTER". Sounds amazing and the car runs a little richer but not really noticeable

What, the whoopie cushion idea? Or the kazoo idea?  :P

Check the net and you'll see its been done before, theres some movies around, I think it was some sort of Mazda, tried various things, eg baloons, party streamers etc, sounded quite funny. No link sorry, shouldn't be too hard to find...

Btw, my stock R32 GTSt bov is like twice as loud as the my GTS25t one, same filter too, dunno why that is...

    • Yeah it was a little confusing as stream of consciousness. To be clear I’m referring to a failure in a NEO turbo where you have another MAP sensor or something similar teed with the OEM MAP sensor for whatever reason. 
    • Cheers for the feedback. Yeah I've already got the superpro outer adjustable bushes, been in for about a year now. Bought the inner non adjustable superpro bushes last week and planning to install this week/next week. I'm kinda set on going polyurethane path to help stiffen things up a bit and longevity. RE: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Yep, Hardrace and Cusco do them about $450-$500. Rubber bush.  Would have been the easier option.
    • I have this issue with my 08 v36 sedan that has only had 98 in it last 10 years, and Im pretty sure my mechanic puts k&n in when servicing. Could it really be that simple? I've been shopping around to get it fixed, but being so cold in Adelaide, it doesn't make the noise.
    • That's somewhat of a mixed message or confabulation of two different things. Point 1. Yes, it is generally a bad idea to tap anything into the FPR connection because when it goes wrong the lean condition is very destructive. No, it doesn't go wrong often, but when it does, it is usually because the ignorance of the failure mode is combined with sufficient general ignorance that the failure becomes more likely through ineptitude. Thus, it is generally easier to simply say "don't do it" than try to have a nuanced discussion. Point 2. The Neo's boost sensor "failure mode" should you tap into its connection and have that connection fail is not severe at all. But this is where the confabulation occurs, because you made it sound like tapping into the FPR on a Neo was not as bad. There wasn't any need to bring the Neo's boost sensor up as it was lacking in relevance, even with its previous mention in this thread. /pedant mode.
    • A few things to consider: Is there a good quality aftermarket replacement arm which already has new bushings but also adjustable camber? Rather than the eccentric bolt? Many years ago I replaced all my bushings front and rear with superpro polyurethane bushings. Sure they've been fine. But the castor isn't adjustable and is slightly out, the camber adjustment bolts aren't the greatest and most secure way of adjusting them. If I were to do them again I'd probably just replace the arms with aftermarket ones. I used a 5 ton press to get everything out. The biggest pain is having a wide selection of metal pipe pieces that are strong enough to press things out with. The rear hub bushings gave me PTSD.
