rev 1 and rev 2 (i think) had AFMs which didnt compensate for the loss of air into the cylinders when the aftermarket BOV vents the high pressure air to the atmosphere. So the ecu sends extra fuel into the cylinders thinking theres enough air for complete combustion..of course, there isnt and this causes stumbling after the BOV activates. It also causes protective Oil to be stripped of the cylinder walls (Called bore wash i think) because of the extra fuel. rev 3 and higher have a MAP sensor instead of an afm and they can properly compensate for air loss, so fitting an aftermarket vent to stmosphere type bov isnt a prob with these revisions and higher.

its all cos the stock bov is a recirculating type and doesnt vent any air to the atmosphere,ive heard that there is a bov by HKS called the HKS SSQV or summin which is a recirculating type but also makes a nice whoosh sound when coming off boost. probably expensive tho cos of the brand name (sicne whens that been a prob for jimlad tho ;) )but i think itd be alright for rev 1 n 2!

Yup - exactly .. the SQV can be made re-circulating .. but this makes it quiet.

non sqv ??

whatsa that then ?

Also... y you want my recirc ?? Will I need it ?

I've got 2 HKS BOV's and one is an "SQV" the other is a "Super Blow Off Valve" .. I wanna keep the SQV.

I need the re-circ to plug the hole that the SBOV will make when removed ..

will apexi safc cure this problem? they have quote:

"the Deceleration Air Flow Correction function is capable of curing the erratic idle and stall problems associated with open-atmosphere blow-off valves on hot-wire air-flow meter systems"

orelse, how about getting an ECU from rev3??

ECU for a rev3 will not work .. you'll need all the other bits (map sensor, injectors, turbo etc).

the safc sound like it does cure the problem .. but I also know that it's a nightmare on MR2's, causes all sorts of other problems ..

You have to watch out for sticky nylon pistons on some BOVs.

Heard a story of a guy who had a few problems with an aftermarket dump valve on an Audi S4 which buggered up one of the turbos. Audi refused to replace the turbo under warantee for obvious reasons (the aftermarket dump valve)... This suited him fine because he just upgraded to larger turbos (although you can bet that wasn't as simple as a straight swap).

Turbos are almost enough trouble in terms of keeping them well oiled and working properly without BOVs too, in my opinion.

But the sound is sexual ;)

is it true that safc causes problem?? I'm planing to get a safc and savc.

what sort of potential problem we are looking at?

I think it's due to the learning ecu .. you adjust all the settings, then the ecu changes and the setting are now buggering up the fueling ..

drop a post to IMOC and you'll get more techie details ..
