    BOV for Mishimoto CAC and pipes

    I have a Mishimoto CAC and hot and cold side pipes on my 2011. One of my turbo mounted BOV's is fried and I want to switch to a single CAC mounted BOV. Does anyone have recommendations for fitment? I assume Tial and Turbosmart are the go-to brands.

    I also have a question about the swap. I understand I can run a vacuum reference to the new BOV, but do i need to do anything with the old boost control solenoids other then cap them off?

    On my 11 I just capped them off when I did that. I got the Turbosmart with the 90 degree adapter. For boost reference I made it easy on myself and got the FR throttle body spacer and added a nipple to it for the reference point.

    Perfect! Did you have any issues from the swap?

    Not really related I don't believe. I think there were issues prior that were not diagnosed properly lol.

    Did you use the FR blockoff plates for the old BOVs?

    Yeah, I looked at that route, but my turbos have 120K miles on them so I will either go to GT's or buy a 2013 set from Tasca when they finally die. So if I need to spend money on BOV's now I might as well get one that will work with the future plans.

    I read in a few places that the 2011/12's had replaceable diaphrams in the BOVs but I havent been able to find any part numbers. I may call the stealership and see if they have a part number. That would seem to be the cheapest fix short term. Of course then I still have to deal with the boost control solenoids and miles of vacuum hose getting old.

    How did you know that the BOV failed? Did you get a code?

    Loss of power, funny fluttering noises after letting off the loud pedal. Then started logging and it isnt holding boost like it did before.
