    Can you use Riva BOV with XS intercooler?

    Im geting the cooler in today, can I use my BOV, or am I right in thinking theres no way to use the 2 together with this kit??
    Thanks

    Yes, you would have to fabricate custom plumbing to accept the BOV

    Since the XS is a custom setup, you need custom plumbing...The BOV can work, but you'd either have to trim the blue elbow...or use a custom pipe with a fitting...or splice in specific adapter like this one:

    When I installed my XS, I used the Riva tube but an adjustable BOV...I trimmed the Riva tube to fit my pipes...




    I ran it like this at MUDBUG with no issues...But I changed my setup when I got back, I felt it was too weak....Here is the new setup...



    SO far not one issue...

    Danny,

    Whos BOV is that? Was it hard to adjust? Does it seem to open/close fairly fast? I was wanting to do a similar thing with my XS setup. Going to get a friend to weld the collar onto one of my aluminum pipes.

    That BOV is one I got off ebay, about $30...It works GREAT, just have to adjust slightly with the set off to get it to POP just right....After that, no trouble...

    And those pipes I have sitting on my work bench...here is the original thread, it talks about the BOV...

    Cool. I may snag one of those or dig out the TurboXS typeS ive got in the garage somewhere. Should work just as good.
