    Plumb back DV

    Hey all

    It seems that the atmospheric BOV are causing problems (eg cars running rich, flat spots ect). Hence iam going to try and get a half atmospheric/half plumb back valve. What iam wondering if how do i plumb it back into the system?

    I know you stick one end between the throttle body and the intercooler and the hose to the back of the engine at the vac point, but my question is how do i put the other opening into the system. I know it needs to go into the intake, but at what point, before the air flow sensor or after and how do i plug it in?
    Iam so confused any help would be appreciated

    Cheers

    It was basically discovered when we got a few cars done with the AMD remap. Amd recomends not to have a full atmospheric BOV as it stuffs around with the air flow sensor, the car was jerking, running rich all in all misbehaving.

    re: Plumb back DV

    If you are not after the noise I would let the standard valve do the job by itself. My dv is coming off tomorrow its caused to much trouble!
