Aftermarket Blow Off valve
Any of you guys run an aftermarket blow off valve? I think the sound is the best sound of any motor. I have an extra HKS SSQV laying around and wanted to throw it on the ski. I have seen youtube vids with 250's and aftermarket bov's. Question is, does anyone make flange adapters or I am looking at welding into the intercooler piping?
Is this a good idea? Really cant find any info when searching.

The pic in your signature shows a LX.
Where are you gonna put a BOV on a non supercharged ski?

People are blocking off their bov's because they leak. A quality aftermarket wont.

Traditionally a TURBO car person calls a BOV a bypass valve , this is OK
( the one that makes the car do a FART on gear changes...........fully sick mate )
The 1 which we are always bypassing IS NOT a BYPASS valve , its true term is a over boost/safety valve.
The BYPASS on our ski is the one with the vacum hose connected to it, and does NOT bolt to the cooler.
Now because we have a roots style blower we can not over boost unless we modify the engine RPM limiter!!, but if it leaks below the set point it will reduce performance.......
A turbo will continue to make boost at a given RPM if the wastegate fails , So this is why they will have a overboost valve aswell

Use the gasket from Intercooler to BOV as a template to mill up an adaptor to your choice of sexy sounding BOVs.... Personally I don't see why you would bother, but I see where your coming from. You get off on sound, yeah? Find a good fitter, it should take him about 10min. Most of us are more concerned with critical issues....Sorry for that. Good luck man.
