Default Removing stock BPV elbow

ANyone have any tips on removing the two screws securing the stock BPV to the elbow? Those two little devils are pretty hard to remove. Kinda reminds me of the two screws that sandwhiched the plate where the IACV gasket is.

make sure you have the right size phillips screw driver, use some pb blaster and/or some heat. Worse case get an impact screw driver. Those screws aren't nearly as soft as those on the IACV.

I had my tmic off the other day and decided to give it a go with the elbow. Sprayed pb blaster on it, let it sit for about 10 min, and went at the screws with a philips head screw driver, but the bigger of the two. I will try the smaller head size & if that dont work ill try a small flat head.

Alright, so i removed one screw with ease after spraying it with pb blaster. The other screw was stuck in there and wouldnt budge at all. I obviously ate the thread on top of the screw after many tries with different size drivers so what i did was take a flat head screw driver and place it directly over the screw and hammer that sucker. After a few hits i managed to make a grove across the diameter of the screw. I was then able to just unscrew it with a flathead screw driver. Problem solved , forge recirculating bpv installed.
