If you guys can do a vid of the before and after the BOV would be awesome I think aftermarket BOV will hold boost better Sent from my iPhone using Tapatalk
I'm might be wrong but i think upgrading the waste gate would improve the boost holding like I said could be wrong

To maintain boost through shift points. trying to keep the turbo spoiled for longer periods of time

I just got mine in and we will be doing an install video very soon. We will also be installing the ATP intercooler at that time.
That would help out alot. Thanks

Are yours electric or pneumatic?
I know my tune controls mine, but it is electric.

Waste gate controls the boost of the turbo

BOV needs to hold under boost and release pressure after throttle is released

A boost controller doubles the capacity of the waste gate

I'm curious to know how the install goes since I have a 2012 as well and have been thinking about getting a set.
I was going to install them but got called into work. Hoping to get it done this weekend.
I will take pictures also

Just installed Bov. One of the easiest mods to do. All it takes is a long ass set of arms. 20140126_172908_resized.jpg 20140126_172920_resized.jpg 20140126_172845_resized.jpg 20140126_172758_resized.jpg
First 2 pics. are of the stock BOV. Last ones are of the new Bov installed. The large hole is your BOV vent line. I put the hose back on and left it to vent to atmosphere. All it is three small allen head bolt 5mm. And then tuning to get a smooth engine idle.
