I recently installed an HKS BOV along with the JMB hard pipe. At first, I had a boost leak because the couplers weren't tightened that well, so I fixed that! Here comes the problem, I didn't hear the boost leak anymore, but I've noticed that the car tends to bogg or wants to die off when going from a low RPM to a high RPM. It feels as though it chokes! This happens only when I am in 3rd at a low RPM going into WOT into 4th(even 4th does it at a low RPM going into a higher RPM). I hope anyone of you all could help me out with this problem. Any suggestions would be appreciated. Thanx in advance! Feel free to ask any questions regarding this matter.

Seeing the affects that a modification can do. Any help on this topic guys would be great :readclose ....:clap:

Around 3500 RPM, once it goes over it starts to bogg.

No check engine light right? Sounds TPS related to me.
On one occasion the check engine light came on. I was at a low RPM in 3rd and I WOT into 4th and the car wanted to shut off. I lead off the pedal and a few seconds later the check ingine light came on. That was the only time it appeared.

The TPS is the sensor hooked up to the TB(on the bottom, the top one is the IAC sensor) have your car on and just wiggle the wire. If the car jumps, then its the TPS:readclose

Ok guys...heres the deal...I have tried everything possible to fix this problem but I can't seem to find out the problem. I had one more question for u all..does it matter how i hooked up the T to the BOV and from the throttle body. I didn't splice into the throttle body hose, I just unhooked where the TB goes goes to the wastegate and T'd it from there. Could be the problem or no? Any help would be appreciated. Thanx!:thumbsup:
