That mean it opens only when there is a difference in pressure between intercooler pipe and behind the throttle plate. It only occurs when you close the throttle plate abruptly (lift of your right gas pedal after boosting).
So, at idle, BOV should be completely close. If it is open at idle, you should adjust the spring tension so that it is close. While boosting, it should not leak (same pressure on both sides).


well it really depends on the BOV. good quality ones really are designed to open when there is boost and intake vacuum at the same time, but there are others that open when there is any vacuum no matter what pressure is after the turbo..

Did you ever figure this out?

It's not too hard at all, you just use the plugged vacuum line on the rear right of the intake manifold. Here is my current setup using a MR2 BPV:

Thanks for posting this. Okay so it's tough to see but where does the top nipple hose run too?
What is going on with the lower small nipple and right side big port?
