    BOV on Riva GenII Intercooler

    Just thought i would show you guys an alternative BOV instead of using the shitty Riva plastic junk.

    This one is a GREDDY type RS BOV. These are really popular in australia

    and have heard from alot of people they are much better designed than the likes of Turbosmart.

    Bolts straight up to the pipe with no mods and sounds awesome.

    Is the turbo tech bov reliable?

    I am a bit worried about the bov's,and don't wanna run one on my ski,
    afer reading stories about boostleaks. ( the riva's )

    I must say the turbotech looks pretty solid to me.
    So i think you didn't encounter any problems with your bov.

    I havent yet..... I do use some xp lube on it after I rinse the engine down so that it doesnt get stuck in the closed position and the piston can move much easier. For leak checking I use a tester that i hook up to the compressor thru the S/C and pump 10-14 psi of air thru the system to make sure there are no leaks thru the couplers and other connections. I resently recovered 1.5 psi of boost from a leak that i didnt even know I had by using the tester. What I like about it is that you dont even have to have the engine running to find the leaks. pretty cool imo. BTY Turbo Tech uses Tial bov's

    Tial are very good. Garret backs them 110%.

    If you buy a garret wastegate it is actually a tial.
