BOV filter mod
« on: August 07, 2015, 01:21:23 PM »
Hi Guys,

Has anyone put a BOV filter on their AGP/SS and know where to buy one and whether it's a simple install?

Thanks,

Forge does a BOV for the punto. But it's very expensive for what it is.

You can used you current valve, just change it from a recirculating system to a straight to atmosphere. I personal don't think it sounds too bad.

You'll need these bits....

Cheers Skevy!

Is there a guide on installing do you know? (or is it relatively simple for a non-mechanical guy like me?  ;D)

Also assuming I need one piece of pipework and bung from above?

Thanks!

Had a little look online so think I should be able to manage this ;)

Is there any gain/loss in  (if anyone has tested) performance?

Thanks again!

Yeah it's just one of each that you need. You could also get some jubilee clips if replace the difficult to use fiat ones.

There is no performance gain or loss from this mod. Just makes it sound nice when you change gear ;D

Hey Skevy,

Does it matter what length the Silicone Hose coupler is, 100mm ok or is that too long?

And guessing the blanking plug needs to be 28mm?

Sorry for the (silly) questions! :D

Yeah 100mm should be fine, I think that's the size I got for mine.

And yeap, 28mm Plug is what you need.

I'll take a photo of mine when I finish work and post them on later.

So all the bits have turned up (the silicone pipe arrived today!)

I popped via my parents to pick my parts up and promptly installed them! pics attached!

Real easy to install and the end result is... the BIGGEST GRIN ever!  :D great noise!!

Thank you again Skevy! Pictures were helpful and for the links! (Y)

P.S anyone who wants to hear a video I will most likely put one up on my Instagram page soon, @eddcole!  8)
