So has anybody substitued a BOV that doesn't blow open and if so did you find you had to reset/alter the Wastegates/EBC??
Of course, I'm running a pair of modded GTO BOVs on the black car and a modded evo BOV on the red car.
Once they're modded, they don't leak so they hold as much boost as you want.

There's several vids of mine on ewe tube too like......https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=l9JRbr1Cfuc
BTW.... Jeff Lucius is well and truly wrong on the subject, they don't leak.....they open. There's a big difference.
If you back off the preload on the WGs then you'll get loss of initial boost, then when you turn it up with an EBC you get boost spiking and then get loss of boost when the exhaust pressure blows the WGs open.
The ONLY way to set them correctly is with compressed air and a pressure gauge directly on the WG.

Yes, yes, yes, that might be so, but you're clearly missing the bigger picture.....
