blow by valve
 
hey guys, i'm about to up the boost on my vortech supercharger from 9psi to 16psi. how can you tell what type of blowoff valve will be best for your type of application? i was looking at the one vortech sells but its almost $300 and moneys always an issue.

If you want a vortech piece it's going to have to be the mondo valve at 16 psi, and yes they are $300. Are you running blow thru?

russellthelovemuscle 04-29-2012 01:57 AM

i don't want the vortech one only because of price and i am running blow thru. i'm thinking of ordering the cx racing universal intercooler kit that comes with a blow off valve but i heard there could be tuning issues with that since there more geared towards turbos

Im not sure how much boost those cx racing ones can handle. Honestly when running that much boost a BOV is not somthing you want to skimp out on too much. Because if you get one that cant handle the amount of boost you are running you will force that air back into the blower and cause compressor surge.

I have seen a few threads about your setup, do you have any pictures of it? Im interested in seeing your car.

I wouldn't use that cx racing bov with 8lbs.

97stanger 04-29-2012 07:33 AM

yeah man, save up and wait and do it right. Im guessing you have a built motor and a good amount of $$$ invested into it...not a smart move to skimp out on a part and save $100 bucks when it can cause more harm than good. You dont have to get the Vortech Mondo, as there are other options out there but I would wait and just save and invest into a good valve

i've got a ton of pictures of my build. i built it over the course of 3 years with most of the work done in the past 3 n half months. i did some pretty sweet custom work of my own like the wire tuck and relocating the fuse box into the fender with a custom bracket i made so its still asseble when opening the hood. i'm going to try and put them on a site tonight and post the web adress

Awesome man, I am a big fan of hiding the wires, and when i do a motor in mine ima hide as many as possible. Post pics when you can

I did alot of wire tuck on my old car. I went so far as to cut open the harness and reroute wires to make the wires barely visible.

so with all that time/money into it why cheap out on a valve?

dwtjr3 04-30-2012 10:31 PM

Looks real good ox, that what ima do whenever I pull my motor I think it makes a car look so much cleaner.

And im saying the same thing, why skimp out on a BOV with all the money u have in your setup already

russellthelovemuscle 04-30-2012 11:43 PM

thats a clean wire tuck, where did you hide the fuse box?

russellthelovemuscle 05-01-2012 08:16 PM

good point, but $270? why is it so expensive? is it really that complex of a valve to cost so much?

MCxQubed 05-01-2012 08:20 PM

check out corral.net, alot of people on there are selling bov's so u might be able to find a nice price for a valve

Everything is inside the fenders

oxfordgt 05-01-2012 08:54 PM

I used a mondo BOV and the sound alone was worth the money

I agree, its pretty badass sounding

The reason they are so expensive is because that type of valve is a pretty heavy duty race valve that will support any psi you throw at it. There are internal parts (diaphram, spring, etc) and its fully adjustable.

russellthelovemuscle 05-02-2012 08:13 AM

i'll check out corral net, i'm really hurting on cash otherwise i would just spend the money, but who isn't

97stanger 05-02-2012 04:57 PM

you are involved in the wrong hobby if you cant spend $$$ lol

oxfordgt 05-02-2012 05:38 PM

Fast or Cheap, you can only have one.
