I wanna make my car SNEEZE

I know this has been asked several times already. But who has accomplished "venting" the BOV to the atmosphere? How was it done?

I understand the effects of the MAF system and suck-though and blow through.

A guy I know has a Miata, that is boosted ans he is "venting" his BOV , now im not completely sure if out MAF's are the same, but he was explainting it to me that he had to cut a flap... or something in the MAF.. dont quote me, cuz I foregot........

I know its"ricey" to some of you, but Id like to be herd and intimidated...................
what are my options?

Tom's done it (of course) we have it on mine. We use the blow through MAF and you place the BOV before it so you dont vent metered air...... thats about it.....

I'm sure Tom will eventually chime in

There are also "dual-port" blow off valves that vent some to atmosphere. They give you the sound you are looking for. We use them on WRX's all the time, they do work better venting it all back in though..

That's what gets me about Tom's kit. He has a mount point for the blow off valve and I don't understand how that works since everything I've read says that a bov after the maf is going to do nothing but cause problems. I'd think you'd want to recirculate that back into the intake track post-maf. Hopefully he can clear that up for us.

I didn't say the kit came with a bov. The piping on the kit I've helped install expects a blow off valve.

True Tom's kit doesn't come with a BOV, but the piping already has the flange installed on it, all you do is bolt one on.

You can get the BOV through Tom when you order the kit.......
