    Help w/Fullrace intercooler kit and Turbosmart install ???

    Im trying to finish up installing my fullrace gen 2 intercooler kit and Turbosmart bov on my 2013 model. While the kit looks awesome and the quality is second to none my only complaint would be that it came with NO installation instructions. I've been to FR's site and their install video is for their gen 1 kit and there are some differences. Also the turbo smart bov is the same way as far as no instructions but for the most part is self explanatory.
    What I need to know is:
    1. what do I do with the factory wires from the stock ebov? The TS came with a wire that I believe is to be crimped to the stock wires to "fool" the computer that it is still plugged in. Is this correct?
    2. what should the TS bov be set at?
    3. And does the tubing that went to the stock ebov just get removed and covered at the intake to plug it up? This is what I did but just want to be sure.

    Quick help with this would be greatly appreciated! Thanks in advance.

    TS includes a alum plug that just goes into the recirculation tube i believe. Better to find a cap that fits on the intake tube and remove the tube completely.

    Yes, you will get a p0035 code. If you have a tuner, like your sig says, you can have tuner just turn it off in tune and dont need to splice. The wires, you need to cover up with a bag and zip ties.

    The whole black cap turns to make tighter or looser on the BOV. Looser will open easier.

    So that's what that aluminum plug is for. Gotcha. I'm still waiting to get my fullrace down pipes installed before I mess with a new tune. Maybe I can get them in next weekend and can get tunes ordered for it. In the meantime I will just splice that wire in to avoid a code.

    Your tuner has to make one adjustment to your tune, takes them 5mins and you flash it, it is easier..... and splicing into wires is not ideal, opening them to environment.

    1. The wire thing that came with the TS BOV is installed on your factory wires, while it make look to be a permanent crimped on piece you can open the ends and remove it you decided to in the future. I installed the piece and wrapped everything with electrical tape to protect it from the elements and then ziptied it out of the way. I have had that installed for two years, with no issues.

    2. Install the BOV and then make adjustments once you start it and test drive it. I didn't need to adjust anything.

    3. I have a Gen 1 FR intercooler, but mine came with a rubber sleeve and a cap to install on the intake end and remove the tube all together. If you don't want to do that the plug that came with the BOV works too and you leave the tube installed. I have done both and either one works the same.

    @Hook124,
    Mine did not come with a cap. It did come with a thin rubber sleeve that I guess is what you are referring to. I did remove the tub and just slide the rubber sleeve over the intake tub port and put a zip tie around it even though it fit snug. I just thought it was pretty thin to be a permanent solution.

    I have ensured that everything is tight, but I am hearing a noise that I can best describe as; "when you fill a balloon up with air and you squeeze the end of it so it makes the "screeching/whining" noise while it lets air out" when ever I medium to hard accelerate. Is this normal??

    Sorry I was unclear the cap comes with the TS BOV. Yes that sleeve is what is what should go there if you want to remove the tube.

    If the "screeching/whining" noise, happens when you let off after you accelerate aggressively. You may want to adjust the BOV cap to "looser" one turn to allow the valve to blow off easier. If your hear it during acceleration then you need to go one turn "Firmer" on the BOV cap.

    I do know my Turbosmart valve makes a sound in low to part throttle situations when I let off, that i can only describe as a mix of a dove/bird sound with a long "pssssssh' noise mixed in. I have found this is just the nature of the the BOV.

    You just have to adjust the TS for what works for your truck. I know its frustrating as TS instruction isn't too clear on how to set it for install or when to adjust.I hope this helps.

    Yes it only happens under acceleration. If I slowly get in throttle there is no noise but medium to heavy throttle it makes the sound. I don't mind the blowoff "pssh" sound when I let off but the other noise is aggravating at even medium acceleration.

    Sounds like hook is correct. The BOV may be opening prematurely and venting air while your on the throttle rather then when you left off
