The extent of my knowledge is that you will need to get a little plate to block the circular bypass valve. I don't think any gains other than sound can be had by this mod. However, take what I'm saying with some caution, I haven't done this mod and my BOV knowledge outside of boost surge prevention is limited.

You can't do that or you'll throw a P2261 code... Bascially you would need to tee off the vac line going to the stock BOV, and voila- vent to atmosphere in style. Also DO NOT BUY a knock off BOV, you will end up paying for a real one down the line as the knock off do not sound as awesome as the real BOVs (HKS SSQV, TiAL RFL, GReddy). PM me if you need help. I just installed mine a couple of weeks ago- it's quite nice sounding.

I'm definitely interested in doing this mod down the road, I love the turbo sound. Who cares if some consider a loud turbo rice :P

I never considered a BOV to be rice- Ricers run fart can mufflers, and wind their motors up to 8-9K in v-tec and run 14's or less in the 1/4 mile. Rice is gutting a commuter car, putting a roll cage in it, and getting beat by a 4cyl with a smaller motor, and convertible top. And after several beatings from said 4cyl, pulls up to said driver of said 4cyl and says "oh man, my v-tec didn't crack, but, but I kept up with you for a little bit back there!" That is rice!

Hks ssqv bov

I have a HKS SSQV BOV but I currently have it disconnected because of the codes it was throwing. I would prefer to put it back into service. Do you think that if I get the Hahn plate cover for the stock BOV that the codes would stop? Anyone had this experience? Thank.

Go with Synapse. If you understand what a BOV does and what it shouldnt do, you will realize why the Synapse unit is supoerior. Synapse has a video that shows it and a Greddy on the same tube, and the synapse evacuates the tube before the Greddy can even actuate.

True:

Unless your turbo has no bypass valve (non stock)

Or if you want a piston actuated valve vs a diaphram actuated valve like the bypass valve in the stock turbo on the sol/sky. Negligible performance difference,(more reliable IMO) but much more "whoosh" noise

I believe he is still stock.

However I never thought I would get a turbo upgrade... now I am looking at getting one within the year!

If you are going to spend the time and money to get the whoosh sound, might as well get something that could be useful down the road and wont cause CEL's in the mean time....

Sell the HKS.

Get the Synapse (w/ hks adaptor) and follow my install guide on the sky side. You just need to adjust some vacuum hoses around and you will be good to go! No need for the delete plate.

If you block the stock Re-circ value you will throw a P2261 code.
