Not possible to install the BOV in a T8 managed engine. Need to recirculate the air.

Well just buy a recirculating BOV and not one that vents to the atmosphere.

Don't think you can do a BOV, at least not a direct replacement of the stock one in a SS. I have looked and the bypass valve is on the outlet of the turbo.
I guess you could do a custom job and just unhook the stock valve. Put in an aftermarket BOV on the i/c piping. Don't think it would be worth it though as it still would have to recerc the air. If it is the Psss sound you are after fordge has a 1/2 recerc and 1/2 vent to atmos, it may work in a custom fitting. :-??

When you say "bypass valve" do you mean wastegate?

I have never seen a blow off valve as a part of the turbo and i didn't think it was possible.

Our 93ss don't have BOV but the Diverter Valve.
However, I seen this guy installed HKS BOV before on this site..
So, Nothing's impossible. :P

There is a way to convert the stock valve to atmosphere dump 8) I have not had time to test it but have a prototype part on hand. A far more elegant solution. :wink: The ports from the central hole connect to atmosphere to allow dump and therefore make the really cool sound.

Yes..it is intended for make a sound..PSST PSST.. :wink:
Basically, those are used to relieve some of hot circulating wastes go out to the atmosphere..to reduce hot air pressures from turbine and engine recirculates back to the engine.
:P

Yea let me know if this has any kind of performance effect, because right now (and no offense to anyone who has done this) but it sounds like doing a mod for the sake of doing a mod. please correct me if i'm wrong.
