Default I have compressor surge! Please help!!!

I got a Blitz Super Sound Blow off valve and it works great!....for 5 minutes. After five minutes it delays before it opens and sends a shockwave into my turbo. Then it opens? Why is it doing this? Where are you guy drawing your vaccum through? I have a Front mount intercooler if it makes any difference? Please help me, I am taking to a local shop to have it looked at but Any help is greatly appreciated!

you definitely want to make sure that if you have the stock MAP, then you have a couple one-way valves in the vacuum line to make sure your MAP is getting no more than negative to zero pressure. If the MAP senses your boost, it'll send good engine management clear out the window. That's just one thing to check though, sounds like you're haveing more serious problems than that . . .

you are pulling vacuum of the acutal intake manifold right?? I can't tell from the picture. Make sure the hose doesn't have a leak somewhere that's not allowing the valve to pop-off,. Otherwise i am not sure what to tell ya adam.

maybe you need a higher flowing BOV? IIRC from the SCC articles with their FMIC they had to go to larger and larger BOV's to prevent surge like you are getting. Nice install by the way!

My BOV does the same thing, I have an Apex'i twin chamber BOV. I'm only running 5psi of boost, it's starting to make me upset, because I adjust it, and it leaks boost, but it still gets compressor surge, I think I'm gonna have to trade out for a different BOV. I don't think the apex does that good for low boost applications, even though it says it does.

I am getting my vacuum directly in front of the throttle body, you can see in the picture. I am taking it to be looked at today. I just dont understand because all of these hondas are running five punds of boost and they are using the same type of BOV and they get no surge! WHY?????????!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!?????????

Do you mean behind the throttle plate(from intake manifold)??

Or actually IN FRONT OF the throttle plate(in air intake system)??

I mean if you are looking at the engine while standing in front of the car it is "in front of" the throttle plate. Like closer to the front bumper. I am talking about physical location not location in relation to the throttle bodyh and intake plenum!

Badass , that looks nice. while I don't have anything to add about the surge other than what was mentioned , I'd like to know if that IC was a kit and wha bumper that is.

The intercooler is from a Greddy Integra Drag Kit. The entire piping is a custom setup by Turbo Technologies in Tacoma, WA.

That's the same BOV that i have and have not had any problems with it. You might have a defective BOV.
