    Question to bov or not to bov

    All,
    I am using the riva bypass filters on my 250.From what i have seen that the BOV might be a better choice, would it be a good idea to loose one of the filters and block off the entire port on the IC and call it a day? I guess this way i would be sure not to loose any boost.

    Damn!
    that was fast.... I thought i might get that kind of response. I remember when i bought the filter kit i was pretty bored and wanted something to do that weekend... i should have used more brain power instead of wallet power.(at the time)
    I'll see who has them in stock.... thanks..

    its a terminology thing realy

    We should be calling it a over boost valve

    We do also have a bypass/BOV that stays and is vacum operated , same as you guys are fitting,

    Our BOV's ( as they call them) are cheap and leak and loose boost,

    Rip,
    We have I guess what you could call 2 bov's. One is on the back of the intercooler and most all the stock ones leak so we remove them and use a block off plate. The other one is on the side of the I/C and is vacuum operated.

    Cool...thx for the pics....I knew about the vacuum-operated BOV but was unaware of the 'overboost valve'....throw that shizz in the garbage......but that BOV is a necessity in my opinion....esp if u ride offshore under modulated throttle conditions......
