what do you mean the otherway around???

is your bov on the port where the guy has the rubber chair stopper?
if so you have yours the wrong way, the port thats blocked off in the vid clip is the plumb back port, this is the return to the intake before the turbo..

the bov should be on the pressure side of the turbo on the hose thats just before the throttle body...

It wouldn't work dude. IF you have it the other round the BOV wouldn't go off as there's no pressure pushing the piston; also, you'd have no release of intake boost pressure when the throttle closes...

Only the STOCK BYPASS valve looks the other way round to the video, it's a weird setup, they look 90' out to aftermarket (correct) setups.. plus they make that annoying factory quiet tutututu..
