my car isnt idling well at all...im told its probly an air metering problem. One possible cause is that i forgot to run a vacuum line to the BOV. Which fitting does it go on??

stick your hand over the discharge hole on the BOV, and 2 fingers on the ports using your other hand. If the idle improves, you know it's your BOV leaking. If not, check elsewhere. I'm not sure which port you use on that thing.. I've never used a Turbonetics blow off valve. I got scared away from Turbonetics when I lost 2 motors because of a POS Deltagate sticking open on me (overboosted).

Its most likely going to be that bigger fitting. The silver one.

Correct me if I'm wrong but don't most b15 engines with turbo's need to recirculate the BOV? I'm no expert but I dont see any recirculation going on there.

agreed ... specialy since its futher up which would put it behind the diaprham .. the other fitting is prob if you want to run it as a diverter valve as well ..

Actually many bov's have a second smaller nipple that can be used as extra reference for higher boost. In most cases the car runs funny with it on like that though.

That BOV looks very similiar to the one that Sarah got in her box at George's, David. :)
