You didnt have to move the turbo , you should of said something and you could of used my v-band down pipe on your turbo and not moved anything

The BOV is fine the MAF is way to close to the turn to the TB tho will have to see if it creates an issue

I don't have a v band exhaust housing. My old setup had the turbo kicked down and front. Now it's bolted to the manifold like it should be. We had talked about me having the wrong hot side housing but when I put on the PVC box delete the turbo fit right into the manifold. It's on there now lol.
What will the maf being too close to the throttle cause ?

MAF being to close to a sharp tune can cause issues with the MAF and tuning

Huh well it's always something. I guess ill work on moving it. How far from the throttle body elbow should it be? I would like to just cut the pipe before the BOV and move the section towards the IC. Then put a section of 3 inch after the maf.

maf housing is moved farther from the turn for the throttle. new down pipe and dump tube are in place. hf cat removed. New oil return line. Powdercoated all the charge pipe, oil pan, valve cover and ceramic coated the manifold, dp, and mid pipe. Getting ready to run lines for the catch can. What is the recommended way to run a proper pcv setup on a boosted zetec. I'll post some pics this week.

I got cfm's pcv delete. I am running that to the catch can. For proper venting and to keep from having un-metered air in the engine I am going to run and line form the catch can to the intake manifold. When you do this there needs to be a boost sensative pcv valve or check valve of some sort in that line to keep boost pressure from going back through the catch can and into the crank case. I am also going to run a line from the valve cover breather to the intake pre turbo.
