Need one that is designed for the 98-03 legacy/liberty B4. Not all of their model BOVs fit.


MY02 Blue B4, aka 'The Project' - v8 Spec C engine package and assorted other 'goodies' - Sold, then bought back for parts. In process of stripping.

MY97 Silver RX, aka 'The Track Toy' - All good bits from B4 will find their way into this...
MY03 Holden Commodore - Daily. Because good on fuel.

If you have the T9000, you may need to undo the four allen key bolts on the top, rotate the top section (with the fittings for the vac lines) 90 degrees, then bolt it back together again. This way it will clear the intake manifold.

I never got the whistle trumpet. Mine only had the trumpet that sounds like the car is sneezing :(

As soon as she hands it to you, slowly take of your pants, then, while staring her straight in the eyes rub it against the tip of you penis, while continuing your painfully intense gaze whisper to her;
 
"My eye is watering, this might be a bit hot"

I should just convert to single, right?

Mine didn't fit with the trumpet attachment either, but I didn't want it on there anyway so I went with the 50/50 vent option.

Ugh i could ramble on for forking days about this stuff.

Did anyone notice any adverse effects when used with the sequential turbos? 

 

From my understanding this would need to recirculate for normal/optimal performance, therefore wouldn't be any more audible than the factory bov?

What you talking bout Willis????

 

These things are loud. You can tune them down by adjusting to recirc if you have a vagina. Full atmo sounds a bit hectic (as Aek would put it) so you have to find a compromise that suits your desire.  I had to tighten the spring up lots to stop it releasing boost early because 20 psi, but spool noise has increased which says to me it's doing it's job. 

 

There aren't too many other options as far as bolt on Bov's go.

 

Good unit.

Yup Flutter sounds wicked.

 

I have no flutter. Is it a result of running no BOV?

 

From all the comments I've read, I gather full atmo is considered **** factor 10+ and therefore the opposite must be considered the soft vagina option. Lol.

 

 

I have it on full vagina mode, and have tighten the spring, I still get a nice little whistle every now and then.

 

Cool. I have never set mine to vag mode.  I'm on about 50/50.

 

Ash how far wound in is the head of the allen bolt on yours?  Mine is about 4mm. It feels like a lot to me and I'm wondering if it's set up right.
