APE SS BOV mod - how ?
« on: June 20, 2012, 01:10:44 am »
Has anyone done the blow off valve mod on an Abarth EVO yet. The engine looks different to the AGP although I suspect that is down to the cover.

Also is the bung and filter size 28mm as per the AGP ? I cant find any info the Evo mod and I pick mine up Friday !

    I can't imagine it'll be too hard to be honest, the turbo is shared with the AGP so it can't be that different

    I cant find any info at all. There is no difference between the Evo and SS Evo so surely some must have fitted a filter ?

    I don't think you can do it on this engine mate. The bov seems to be attached to the side of the turbo. I have re routes my air intake to the filter box and removed te trumpet inside the bottom part of the airbox and trust me you don't need a bov filter the dump valve and wastegate chatter is plenty loud enough.

    Pop me a personal message with either yr email or mobile and I'll pop you some photos over. Basically you take the top off the airbox and remove bmc filter, you will then see a trumpet in the bottom of the box. This slides out. Then there is about an 8" long cool air feed pipe coming out of the bottom of the airbox. I took this put and replaced it with about a 5" long 70mm 90 degree silicone bend to bring air up from the big space at bottom of engine. Much cooler it from there and hey presto cooler air more turbo spool, dump whoosh and waste gate chatter noises.
