First off installation was easy took about a hour with the now famous 10mm ratcheting wrench. I've got no boost leak or anything.
The problem is this thing seems really quiet. Not much louder than the factory with out the bov plate. Is it maybe recirculating too? Inside of it was a spring a plastic plug and a rubber diaphram. Was I supposed to remove the rubber or something to get it to vent to the atmosphere?

I have no mods other than the msd coil/wires & ngk colder plugs.

Thanks

if your mopar bov doesnt sound too loud, you either put it on wrong or not boosting enough. mine gets louder with more boost

Which one did you buy? Does it have holes around the outside? If it doesn't it won't vent the atmosphere...

My secret tool was Hemostat's the things that doctors use to hold gauze etc.
Just lower the screw into the hole with them and then use the wrench with the other hand. I guess I expected worse with all that I have heard about installation. Then again after installing the supercharger on my honda I don't think performing open heart surgery would be challenging :lol:

You'd have to be a jackass to install it incorrectly so no I didn't install it incorrectly and I don't boost more than 5 psi when driving around town, don't want to run into someone LOL. But I can hear it it's just not that loud to me.

Hooked up exactly like the stock? Pink line?

(gotta ask the simple first, no offense intended)

The volume is going to determined by how much pressure is being released also

Last thing is to make sure you tightened down that knurled section tightly

Well it's official. I am a jackass. I installed my Mopar BOV on Thursday afternoon the first day of being sick. I have been sick since Thursday morning, but I really wanted to install the BOV. I should have known after it took me like 4 hours to do it that I shouldn't be trying to do it being sick. Well after thinking it didn't seem very loud and reading the above posts I got to thinking. So I went and bought a 10mm ratcheting wrench ( a must have for the Mopar BOV install by the way) and went to work taking the surge valve off. And sure enough I had put the stupid thing on upside down hopefully no damage was done to my car having driven a few miles yesterday and today. Oh by the way it only took about 20 mins to do the install with the 10mm ratcheting wrench. Best 11 bucks I have ever spent LOL. And yes I am a jackass....let the flaming begin......

I do boost more all the time, just pointless to waste the gas from stoplight to stoplight in this shitty town. But when I'm not driving in city streets I boost all the time....

Upside down? you mean the rainblow slot on it is supposed to point a certain way?

Well the flat side of the BOV plate is supposed to point up with the circle opening that is in the middle about the size of a nickel towards the surge valve. I had it upside down. The rainbow slots were lined up but I had the wrong side of the plate up against the gasket.
