No Issues since installed which is about 2 years now. changed out bov sound by changing front to purple and now it make more intakes sounds then whooosh sounds.There has been numerous back and forth here on CivicX and elsewhere about potential damage running this on MAF tuned cars, as opposed to safely running it on speed density with MoTeC.
The sole purpose of the HKS BOV is to make cool whoosh noises. To my knowledge there are no performance gains to be had.
Still, I’ve wanted one ever since I’ve had the car. My good buddy boosted180sx can attest to this. And while there are plenty of folks rocking these with no apparent issues, I’ve held off until now to install simultaneously with MoTeC.
This is what is included in the SSQV HKS BOV Kit.
As I am running an Eventuri intake, the parts circled in purple will not be used. They are incompatible with the airbox.
Instead they will be replaced with the Evasive Motorsports Eventuri adapter kit In blue.
Evasive Motorsports posted a really good install video:
But for some reason, the narration stops at about the 16 minute mark where I needed it most
For me even with EVS bracket, it was still rubbing with eventuri so I ended up getting whole HKS setup. Can't wait to see your installation process..where I struggled installing mine lol
