Sorry, how do I tell if I have a rev-d or if it is gen 3?, I do see a "T" at the end of the hose coming off the bov though, I tried taking it off and blocking both sides, went for a drive and it did not seem to change anything at all?. Will take a pic and post it in the morning, maybe that may clear things up a bit.

its 2001 so most likely a Rev-D, what is the model code on the vin plate,you mentioned TA-BE5, on that same plate look down for the model should start with BE5D, also Rev-D has different headlights and other changes like pink top feed injectors etc. 

 

Visually standing and looking at the car the easiest way to tell the difference is the headlights.

I have photos of it but I don't know how to upload them here?, how did you upload your pics?. Also yeah I am sure its a Rev-D as the indicator is the same as in the pics.

I did it on my revd and didn't really notice much (if any) difference, so i'm not surprised. Apparently most of the issues were ironed out in the revd

Thanks, I have uploaded some pics of my car and setup, I would still like to try this mod and see if I get any results.16114795_1775987142726947_6154253462946815978007_1775987196060275_7481192538490316114382_1775987166060278_6213786904529816105678_1775987229393605_27718782190653

If you can see in the pics, I seem to have 2 "Ts" coming off the bov, don't know if this is normal or not?. I have found the number 10 hose connected to another "T" which connects to turbo, not sure if you can make it out in the pic.

Looks like someone has switched your intercooler and bov set up for a gen 2 set up. But the small hose between the two tee's is the one you want to remove and blank off the tee's.

Agreed, looks odd for a rev-D.. someone has already been there and played around. @gunit439 but yea the short length of black hose between the T just kink it and tie it with a zip tie. go for a drive, then revert if it does nothing.

Thanks for the suggestions and help, I just removed the hose between the 2 Ts and blocked both ends, went for a drive and it did not seem to change anything?, I already have a boost gauge installed and was hitting 11-12 psi as usual and about the same after vod. Maybe like someone else suggested, it has minimal to no effect on some rev-d setups?, is there anything I need to do with the hose 10 line as I see there is a T connected to that too?

@Kiwi_Fozze DO YOU KNOW WHO I AM

 

Also by way of follow up

 

My previous two Rev D legacies both had the revised hose arrangement - meaning no "hose 10 mod" to be done, they had a direct line from manifold to BOV from factory

 

I have a Rev C (backlit dash, new interior, old headlights and ECU setup) at the moment which been done, runs 15psi primary by 2400rpm and about 20psi on secondary (there may be another issue here) - it ran about 10 / 14psi before

 

Some rev D apparently do not have a revised hose arrangement? I am confuse by this - I get the feeling there's some confusion re what hoses are even being talked about

Rev d should all have direct line... 

 

And if it does have direct line, its probably the best spot to tee a gauge in to. Because all the other pressure / vac lines have sensitive stuff plugged into the other end of it

Yeah exactly - I don't know what hose the half dozen owners who are saying they've done stuff on a rev D have done to be honest 

 

And yes agreed re where to plug in the hose - that fulla on the bookface I get the feeling is not too mechanical so didn't want to over complicate it

Thread revival! Can this be done with the VDC twin port bov? The hose setup on that looks quite different to the photos that are still working on this thread...

Tried this tonight and went to 5psi on both before and after vod, maybe not possible on the twin port vdc bov...

So what do i do with hose going to intake pipe? Block it i assume? Does standard hose from manifold to bov have pill in it? If so do i just replace hose with straight vac hose. Churr

      Hiya, would anyone in/near Wellington have a spare passenger floor mat for a 2006 Legacy b4? I’ve looked at a few aftermarket options but I’d like to find an original. Cheers!
