    What BOV ?

    My HKS SSQV seems to be gone. I can hear my friends own but I can't hear mine. So I pulled the ski and put my hand in front of the outlet and felt nothing. Put my hand in front of my friends own and felt air being bleeded. So I'm thinking about either going with the new TIAL Q 50mm BOV or going back to my old HKS SSQV. My question is, I don't see any 16 psi springs for the Q BOV. Since I'm running an E1 wheel I'm making more boost than the strongest spring I see available. Does this mean as I approach 12 pounds of boost my BOV will bleed the rest of boost ? Also I have a RIVA intercooler. Is there any way to mount it on a RIVA intercooler ? Thanks !

    Put the 3psi spring in the Q. The springs have nothing to do with boost, but adjust the opening threshold in respect to vacuum.

    Or. Thanks now I understand. So the BOV won't leak boost but the springs are just for how much vacuum there is for the BOV to open when the the throttle plate is closed ?

    retail price on the spring is $29.50

    here is an ebay seller..$27.99 for the spring, but he wants $55 for express shipping to trinidad..http://www.ebay.com/itm/TIAL-BOV-50M...item2eb6a7bf1d

    Extreme psi, local shop 5 min from me. $26.50 for the spring, but they want $85.61 UPS express shipping to Trinidad. http://www.extremepsi.com/store/prod...cat=390&page=1

    If you want. I can pick up the spring from extreme psi and ship it myself and you can just paypal me as a gift. USPS express is $38(3-5 days) or priority international is $16.95(6-10 days)

    Let me know if you need any help.

    Thanks for that generous offer . Shipping isn't a problem for me as I have a U.S. address and we have cargo moving from there every month so we just put the stuff in with shipment and we get it to Trinidad. But thanks. That was a really nice thing of you to ask.
