as in even taking off the standard one? so i've been thinking. if i soften my bov, that'll allow air to escape easier once its off boost and thus elimnating the DOSE sound and if i harden the BOV then i'll end up with more DOSE before the BOV has a chance to open. am i right?

if u have a turbosmart BOV is shouldnt dose, it should just go pttsscchhh!
i i had a play around with a turbosmart veeport on the weekend, and the soft setting was a slow release psssssssshhhhhhhhh where as the hard setting was a sharp pptttschhh!! if that makes sense, it didnt dose at all...

u can remove your standard BOV and plug the 2 holes from the crossover pipe, it will dose, but not as loud as that car, as that car has a full intercooler and plenum setup, afaik a pod will help with the loudness of the dose, or a cai and panel filter.
do u have standard cooler and pipework on your car?

yes mate u can remove the bov totally and there will be no problems.

with the bov removed it wil repeat the tu tututututututu and sound fully sick uleh.

nizpro have proven that a bov is not needed.

however there is mush debate on the topic.

i use a gfb mach1 plumbed back for legality and with 15 psi i get good dose and heaps of spool noise.


as a nother member said u need an actuator, but without a ported wastegate and bigger flapper valve you will have problems getting a solid boost level if u have a cat and zorst fitted as the zorst flow will follow the easiest path of resistance and if u have a good zorst its easyer for the flow to go by the turbine rather than the wastegate because the stock zorst has backpreassure so its easyer to exit by the wastegate.
but if u remove the backpressure and command the same boost level u will get overboost, the stock cat will hold u back to 12 psi high in the rev range.

if u mod the wastegate u can get 15 psi solid all the way to the redline.

that will give u over 300rwkw safely without spiking and blowing your motor....

I just have a herrod cooler but still stock pipping and it has a k&n panel filter already in the stock box.

I am looking into moving the battery and having some pipping go straight from the turbo to a pod behind the right head lights. Is this tricky?? I mean with the rest of the pipe work and what not and what kinda pressure lines or other lines need to be hooked up if any???

The guy that owns that is from this forum right????

Can he post up info/pics of his car plase???

Cheers guys
Dylan


PS BFHOON what 1/4mile times have u run???

im only running low 13s at the moment but with the addition of these semi slicks i have now im guessing it will drop. every time u hit boost it spins on stock tyres.

iv also not yet had a chance to hit the strip with my new clutch as the 13 was run with a slipping clutch.


if i had have got an auto i would be in the 11s <kicking myself>

if you stay away from dirty women and use protection you should not get dose. 8-)



really tho, if u have metal pipes not rubber and a large intercooler you will still get dose with a bov running at high boost.

the only way to stop it is to use a 2 inch bov and vent all the air to atmo..... :D

Yeah doesnt take much to ruin the stock clutch.
Mines still stock and slips in 4th/5th if you make it pull from low down, or if you do a big rev/dump... all over times its ok, just ok lol

Doesnt that tell u not to dump it at big revs then??????

Why are u dumping it and why r u dumping it at big revs???

It wouldnt give u a good take off and ur car should be able to do a skid with around 2,000rpm or a little bit more
