    What to do about the hole I made from the BOV

    OK since im switching to the XS intercooler setup im getting rid of my Riva BOV. However riva required me to to a 3/32 hole into the plastic for it to work. Is it ok to leave that hole open or should I plug and how would i do that? Tape it or get like a cap. Whats the best way

    thanks

    you're talking about the hole they made you open up on the BOSS nipple on the intake runner? SIMPLE...leave it attached, and run the other end of the rubber hose to another BOSS nipple on either of the other runners....

    I did that temporarily when I insalled my XS before I could redo my pipes for a BOV...

    You can also get vacuum caps from any auto parts store.

    it's just a black rubber cap that fits over the nipple.

    vaccum caps may blow off under boost... you ould tap it and run a ss bolt into it ...a cap may work but clamp it

    it is sucked at 30 to 40 psi off throttle and blown at 7 to 10 on boost sot it is a bit ..tap the hole and screa a stainless steel bolt into it with a very small o ring near the head or squirt a little rtv in the hole befor e you screw it in

    I tighten my vacuum caps down with a zip tie. I also silicone them on.
