Default doin a v4 sti conversion

the front clip that came with my v4 STI was missing a few pieces, the stock bov for one, im sorta new to the scooby scene (former Nissan man), and i've heard that the factory style recirculation bov is what i'll want to stay with until i run a stand alone (or re-mapped) ecm.
there's no BOV mounting point on the TMIC like the newer scooby's, instead there's a 90degree tube that comes out and towards the (now drivers side) of the vehicle, there IS another 90degree rubber tube attached to it, but when i received the vehicle it was capped off at the end of the rubber hose.

im trying to get this thing running for the autox season but im not really wanting to put an open air bov, unless it doesnt matter that it's not going to recirc...

any help with this?

the stock one is a in the bottom out the side plastic valve any bov with a 1"? inlet and outlet would work

and after market one will be fine with out em (expect fire balls).. just make sure its is set tight enough not to leak and soft enough to open...

the perrin universal would work well

the elbow off the TMIC goes to a hose which elbows down below the TMIC to the stock BPV, and then goes back underneath and behind everything to the turbo inlet. cant find a pic of what its supposed to look like, but basically the BPV goes on the end of that first elbow hose

i figured as much, but i dont have any of the pieces beyond the rubber elbow so i'll prob just live dangerous and run an atmospheric bov.
unless anyone has a spare stock setup for the car?

hey bro im in japan, if you need any parts let me know, and for your BOV or recirc oe style i think i have one laying around or you can use one off a EVO 8-9 MR it is metal and much nicer, i actually bought one to replace my girlfriends forester s/tb bov cause it was making the well known blowing in a bottle sound. i am currently using the same evo bov for my front mount setup.
welcome and enjoy

You see this often because it's getting popular to not use a recurc or bov overseas. I have no idea what the benefits are, but it doesn't sound like there are any.

i think that was in reply to people over sea's not using a bov or recirc valve. though i cant believe anyone would actually fully eliminate it. unless that like that nice shuddering sound the turbo makes as it chops the air that comes back out of it.

Well that **** is news to me. Outside of the US, fitting an atmospheric valve is common place, and usually the first thing to be changed.

Before the Type-R/RA forums shut down, there were tons of people there that eliminated the stock valve with just a blank plate. I'd asked what the reasoning was and no one knew why. Just that that's what's popular with some of the tuners in the UK.
