Default HKS BOV. Up against manifold?

I just bought and installed the HKS SSQV BOV, and I was wondering if it was supposed to rest up against the headers/manifold. There looks to be maybe 1mm of clearance between the two, just a little closer than I thought it would be. Think this is bad?

I've yet to go start it (just walked in from bolting the last bolt on). I'll let you guys know what it sounds like.

Nah, the tubing is fine, and the kit came with its own zipties.

The actual bov itself is big and nearly resting on the manifold. It's completely flush with the gasket so I guess it's supposed to be there.

Sounds pretty good. I don't know if it'll get annoying after awhile, we'll see what happens. Tell ya what though, worst bang for the buck EVER!!! Absolutely useless, though I *think* I detect a little less lag and smoother shifts. Wishful thinking maybe?

I don't have a digital cam or scanner, so you'll have to do with this pic from Alta performance. Maybe I should of bought a digicam instead. Hehe.

Oh well, other useful parts on the way. (boost gauge for one!)

it feels like that for me only if i am driving fast. if i am at part throttle and then i step on it, it takes a ahile for boost to build.

Even if it only clears the intake runners by a mm it should be OK. The BOV is mounted to the Intercooler which is mounted to the Engine so it won't move around and hit the BOV. Can't you move the BOV on the flange so it has more clearance? Ofrder has an HKS. Maybe you can see his at the meet?

That it is, but its a sound that will make most people think twice. Unless its a DSM or WRX .

Yeah that is what it does you just need more mods to back the sound up though

last friday on my way to mc donalds a truck pulled up next to me revvin up. so i do the same, as soon as he hears the BOV, he stops
then on monday he was tellin his friends that i had nitrous and he heard my purge valve. haha

guess he didn't know what a BOV was.
