Help with aftermarket bov epp hotpipes
« on: April 04, 2020, 12:01:37 PM »
Need help Thought i might try asking here, installing some EPP hotpipes and with the aftermarket bovs vacuum line Mike said to tap into the brake booster line behind the throttlebody but in my car it is a hard plastic line most the way back(outlined in red)into a larger1/2" pipe (outlined in blue) with a much larger ID then 1/16th inch. I havent heard back from mike on whether i could tap into this line(outlined in green) in front of the intake it seems to be on the intake piping similiar to the brake booster line.  Any opinions on if its safe to do so or what anyone recommends would be appreciated! Thanks guys.

So do you know if i just cap off the oem recirculating bov inlets into the intake? Will i throw codes without a tune revision having just unplugged the oem bov sensors?
Thanks for the help!

Yes you cap the recirculation inlets with rubber leg tips from home depot. I'll link a YouTube video showing how to cap off the recirc inlets.

If I'm not mistaken you have to have the rear bov plugged in and zip tied off to the side so that it won't be just hanging by the wire, and the front bov doesn't need to be plugged in. In doing this it won't throw any codes and no tune is needed.

1." inch OD silicone high temp caps are ideal. I would avoid the leg end caps as they are not suitable for high temps and will sooner than later fall apart. Z

I prefer the TurboSmart Boost Reference Adapter, it goes under the MAP sensor on the intake manifold and it's a much cleaner install IMHO.

And I personally had chair caps for 2 years before the EPP dual intake and never had an issue. I replaced them twice just out of peace of mind but never leaked.
