    the spring in the valve needs to be more stiff,if it is leaking from there,add a few washers to take up space or buy a stiffer spring

    you can try the spacer idea, to help stiffen the spring. is the car originally turboed, or has it been converted/swapped? is it still running the VAM? if so is the BOV a resurculating bypass valve?

    i have an 86 SVO and just installed a FMIC with an RFL BOV and have had nothing but issues with it, im changing mine out for a bosch 110 bypass valve, and resurculating it.

    Mustang owners do not get turbo kits from any shop in ormond beach(TCI)...big mistake


    Yes I pushed TC527 in the face and he didn't kick my ass like he said he would next time he saw me. I'm upset he lied to me :/
