Default Blow Off Valve

I am debating on putting on a Blow off valve on my T6. Any ideas on which one I should purchase? thanks

HKS SSQV is what I would choose.

Where do you plan to mount it?

Good luck 3/4 of the piping is plastic.

You would have to Tap into the piping off one of the turbo's.

That's going to suck.

I would have said have it welded to the Upper IC pipe, but if it is plastic you cannot.

My only other suggestion is to cut your stock Upper IC hose in half. Get a T-adapter for the BOV and be sure it is one that works with your BOV. Insert the T-adapter into both ends of the cut hose and clamp them down. Then attach the BOV to the other part of the adapter and run a vaccum line to it.

The very middle pipe, is that plastic or Aluminum? It is it Aluminum, that is where you should mount it.

----------------------------------

Also the rubber hose that is attached to it and the IC is where you should mount it if you need to use a T-adapter.

They are all plastic except the rubber one from the intercooler.

That sucks.

Then go with the T-adapter idea then.

Cut the Upper IC rubber hose and put the T-adapter in clamp it on both sides and then put the BOV on top and hook a vaccum line to it.

Example of a T-adapter,
