in the pep boys (don't know if you have one where you are at) they sell boxes of these rubber cap thingys of various sizes in the "HELP!" section. should be about a $2.50 item if you can find it.

Are you going to plug up the 1" hole in the throttle body? If you can't find a plug at pep boy's you can get vacuum plugs from any Turbo Parts supplier. Turbonetics or Turbo City would be a few places to look for them. Is your valve using a weld on flange into an intercooler pipe? i would love to see pictures of your install once your done.

The nipple on the throttle body is actually 1/2" because the hose acts as a reducer to go from 1" (from the stock bosch bypass) to 1/2" (nipple on the throttlebody). You'd need to get something that'd plug a half of an inch nipple. Easiest way to go (which is what I did) is to go to ACE Hardware (they have anything you need for pretty much any DIY project) and by a 1/2" diameter nickel alloy-with-something-else rod for like $2.00. Then just saw about 2-3" off of that rod. Then using the stock hose that was on the throttlebody nipple cut it off about 1-2" right after the first elbow on the hose. Stick the 2" rod in the hose and clamp it in there. Very easy. And while you're at ACE you can also get adjustable rubber plugs to plug up the inlet hole on the intake pipe going to the turbo where the hose came from the outlet of the bosch bypass. I forget what it's exactly called but it's a blck rubber plug with a wingnut to adjust the diameter of the plug by compressing the rubber.

Hey Briggs why are you changing from your TCC Work Stage II bov to the greddy?

Im gonna have to look for the old hose cuz i cut the one that runs from the throttle body to the stock bov so i could fit the tcc works bov ....in but that bov wasnt very loud and i didnt see anypoint to it when i was the only one who could hear it..but anyway that hose was 80 bucks from saab to replace so im not cutting the new one up...but putting a blank in the old hose like Your saying sounds like a good idea and easy.....the bov came with a 3 inch chrome intercooler pipe made by dejoun but im gonna have to cut the flange off it to mount in on to the stock intercooler pipe which is a shame...tomaorrow im going to have it done....Sorry about the spelling.
