    Riva BOV info

    Hi all,
    Newbie from Aus here. I can't believe how much awesome info is on this site, keep finding stuff I want read about.
    Does anyone know the diameter of the hose connection to the plastic Riva BOV?

    Cheers

    Hi, welcome to the forum.

    I don't know the dia of the hose,but i do know those Riva bov's are known to cause boostleaks!
    Please reconsider installing one.
    I don't have one ,and that's because i didn't hear many good things about them.

    Thanks guys,
    Thats right Twelves, worked that out after I paid for it.
    I have a near new HKS ssqv from a mates car he said I can have so I am making an adapter and I'm too impatient to wait for the hose to get here.
    Looks like 25mm (thanks Turbo Tech).
    Next winter I'm planning on a external intercooler, this just for this summer.

    Cheers guys!
