hey guys..im confused..i was told that the bov is installed on the piping to the throttle body...but im looking at pictures of turbo rsx's, and it seems like the bov is installed on the piping to the turbo? which one is it??

my other question is i have the hks ssqv...im gonna be using 2.5 pipes...should i get the 50mm or the 65 mm flange?

it is installed between the throttlebody and the intercooler (if intercooled) or between the turbo and the throttle body when non-intercooled...

its on the pipe connected to the TB... usually within 12 inches of it

technically its installed anywhere between the compressor and throttle body, intercooled or not, but the closer to the TB the better. Also use the 65mm flange :thumbsup:

thanx...but the 65mm is around 2.55 inches..is that gonna be a litlle too big for the 2.5 pipes?

you're looking at pictures of CN kits and that is how they do it with their kits
