Is it a vent to air or recirculating one. Also it depends on manufacture, some are quieter than others, higher boost pressure will also make it sound louder but other factors are involved with this so I should take advise from your local shop.

SOURCE: Volvo V70 xc AWD '98 - fuel filter change


The fuel filter can be located under the carpeted cargo storage floor at the rear of the wagon. Remove the four 10mm bolts, remove the cover. You will then see a removeable plate to the right just behind the rear passenger seat. Fuel filter can be seen through hole in hole. Replaced from underneath wagon. Be sure to make sure lines are fully inserted onto filter. Check for leaks. No smoking, extinguisher handy. Note arrow on filter for correct fuel flow.

Replace your waste gate on the turbo charger. It may be weak and opening up before your at full boost, common to go bad after a few years from the heat of the turbo. Good luck and keep me posted.

Installing aftermarket bov

if ur not changing ur turbo DONT TUCH THE WASTE GATE OR ITS HOSES!!!!! that part is only to reroute the xsaust gazzes to slow the turbo when the throttle is closed, as for the BOV or blow off valve mount it somewhere on ur pipeing that goes to your INTAKE of the motor it is there so when ur throttle snaps closed when u come off the gas pedel to shift, the pressurized air from the turbo can go out and away from the throttle usaly after the intercooler and before the throlltle body if u got the room for it also depending on the install and turbo setup, and computer, the car might tend to stall (MABY!) Depending on what kind of air metering you car uses, will dictate which is the best form of BOV, whether recurculated, or vented.

As for placement, the best place is usually as close to the throttle body as possible, that way as soon as the throttle plate closes air is evacuated...but having said that if you are recirulating, its a bit more plumbing to get that to work right...but anywhere AFTER the intercooler is good... and for the vacume hose any free vacume nipple on the intake manafold u might find one with a rubber cap or somthing of a blocker, if no nipple is availble buya Y type fitting at an auto store to doubble a used one HOPE THIS HELPS

How to install a bov on a 2000-2004 vw jetta

It is not wise to install a BOV on a 1.8t since it could cause problems with stalling in between shifts if it is vented to the atmosphere. The most recommended aftermarket solution is a new diverter valve (ex: Baileys, APR etc). If you still want to install the BOV they sell kits for the ssqv that mounts it to the charge pipe and routes the air back to the intake.

Recently bought a 92 eagle talon tsi awd turbo ''automatic'' and the turbo guage dosen't work the person that i bought the car from said that he replaced the turbo seal that was leaking oil into the...

First things first. Do not bother trying to use the stock boost gauge in that car, it runs off of the ECU and it estimates with small calculations what the PSI may be, the stock boost gauge is ushally 2-3 psi off.

What i recommend is getting yourself an aftermarket boost gauge you can get em used locally on craigslist or a cheapy one from a reputabile ebay power seller. or pick one up for 40-60$ from autozone.

After you do that mount it in a good location, they are very very simply to install, if yours does not come with an instruction paper, you can search boost guage install on or yahoo or google.

Turbo BOV

the small one is a vacum hose which opens the bov when the throttle shuts off, im guessing the one on there vents into the atmosphere and makes the pshhh noise.Your original one has a larger hose aswell which plumbs back into the intake pipe somewhere( there is probably a bung of some sort plugging the hole unless its and aftermarket pipe).i hope this helps.
