With the engine at idle the exhaust ports should be closed off by the piston – the piston should be hard against the seat and not
floating or moving
Free rev the engine and back off quickly, the engine should return to normal idle speed – if the engine drops below idle or stalls
increase the spring tension by one turn
Repeat this process until the engine free revs and returns to normal idle speed
Test drive the car and ensure that when decelerating or changing gears that the engine minimal backfiring and no stalling. If
backfiring is excessive or stalling is noticed then check all connections made during the installation, otherwise increase the spring
Maintaining your BOV
Turbosmart recommends that the following maintenance procedure is carried out at six monthly intervals. Regular maintenance will
ensure that your BOV is operating at its peak and will extend the working life of the product.
Remove the cap of the BOV by rotating in an anti-clockwise direction (see figure 1) – CAUTION, the cap is under spring
tension, wear safety glasses and remove with care!
Remove the piston, thoroughly clean the piston and the bore of the BOV
Inspect the surface of the piston and the bore of the BOV for scoring or excessive wear, silver coloured marks are an
indication of excessive wear
Check the Base O-ring and the Cap O-ring for any damage – replace if necessary
Lubricate the bore and the piston with Uni-Glide™, hydraulic oil or sewing machine oil (see figure 1) – DO NOT use grease or
Re-assemble the BOV in the reverse order
The following points should be checked if you find that your engine is dipping below normal idle, stalling or if the BOV is functioning
poorly. Please note, the following checks will cure 99% of problems experienced with a BOV.
Check the vacuum hose for splits, cracks, loose connection, kinking or any obstruction – old or fatigued hose may collapse under
vacuum causing an obstruction
With the engine running remove the vacuum / pressure hose from the nipple in the cap of the BOV, there should a loud hissing
sound. The engine should idle poorly, double check by covering the end of the hose with your finger. If this does not occur, the
hose could be blocked or crimped. Check the hose and replace if necessary.
Ensure that the vacuum / pressure source is not shared and that the vacuum source is directly from the inlet manifold
Check the seal between the adapter and the BOV – ensure that there is no gap between the BOV base and the weld flange
Check the join between the adapter and the intercooler pipe for leaking
