how to properly adjust and install greddy bov

well i wrote a letter to get a bit more detail on how to properly adjust a greddy type r bov. and this is what they wrote back.


Thanks for your interest in GReddy Products. The top nipple on

the top section will connect to your intake manifold (so it reads both

vacuum and pressure and does not get bled off to anything) While the lower

fitting is a vent for the internal diaphragm. The lower nipple should be

left open and not be connected to anything. Make sure when you adjust the

stiffness of the valve that you first loosen the lock nut before you adjust

the set screw. Adjustment will very from car to car, so you need to use

trail and error to find a good setting. Generally you want to valve as tight

as possible, without getting any compressor surge. You don't want it too

loose or it can open too early and you will loose boost. The valve should

make one clean blowing sound, it should not stutter. It should also not

open before the throttle is shut. Please keep in touch with your favorite

Authorized Greddy dealer for more updates.


hopefully this will help out...
