Default For those of you with Forge BOV's, need help, what spring are you using?

hey all. Just got mine yesterday and put it on.. sounds nice, but the spring it came with seemed too tight. I put the smallest looking spring in and it seems to be working ok, but it does feel a little loose as well. Since there is no adjustment screw... these are the other springs I have, and I dont knwo which one to use...


Also, what are these spacers for... Since I have the smallest spring in, can I use one of these spacers to help out just a little? Thanks

The discs are used the same way an adjustment screw is, to put pre-load on the springs if you need to fine tune between suggested rates.

I use the blue spring but get compressor surge with anything below full boost besides that the car seems to run the best with this particular spring. I get no compressor surge with the yellow spring but it feels like the car spools slower.

ooo, ok... from the pics i took i have the green spring in there.. it seems to be ok, but I do think its too loose, maybe one of those discs will fix that... otherwise ill try and switch to the yellow spring and see if that helps
