The "Hose 10" Mod - BE/BH

Yep

Just remove the tee-d off hose, put a straight pipe from mani to BOV (as per any other car), and from memory down at the inlet pipe there\'s a plastic T for the hose you removed and 10 to both join to the inlet pipe - just whip that out and put 10 straight onto the inlet instead

I think it's this actually.

I think I feel confident about this now.

Just wanted to say I've blocked hose ten off and I'm driving the car like this. First impression is the primary boost has moved up to like 3 - 3.5k and when it hits it very quickly goes up to 4-5k but there's no second turbo boost happening here that I'm aware of.

Yeah that's not the effect it should have, the effect is purely to bring primary boost on quicker

Doesn't your car have a pre-existing issue of some sort anyway?

Hmm well it seem's like it's working in the opposite direction then. I thought I had an issue with the secondary not coming on as early as I thought it should be and sometimes feeling like it doesn't boost at all. As far as I know my primary has always worked pretty normal.

All I've done is pulled hose 10 off, taped it and taped off the tee it came off.

Yeah tape is not what I'd suggest to seal 15psi

WTF are you doing man, even I'm not that half-assed

Ok right, better check the tape hasn't been blown off then. Is there some sort of plug I can get to block hose ten off?

Use the green plugs under the dash to put the car into test mode so all solenoids start pulsing. Then pump some carby cleaner through the solenoid as it opens/closes.

Backfiring during deceleration or when you button off? Venting makes them run rich when the BOV vents.
