I noticed my BOV is not engaging when I rev the car. I have been told that it is most likely because the vacuum source is not strong enough. I have heard to put the BOV vacuum line the closest to the throttle body, and another person said to T the BOV with tb and brake booster.

T it into a line with the TB.
So I did T it off the line from the TB, making it the first thing to T from it, but still sounds the same. I did a vacuum test on the line and it looks great from where it is. Is it something with the BOV itself? It has a standard fin, but further inside it has a purple dot in it.

Try hooking a vaccum pump up to the nipple and see if the seat lifts. That valve is kinda yucky.

The BOV itself could easily be from the first generation of HKS BOV in the mid-2000's, so it could easily just be sticking or not properly engaging. It might be the best option just to buy the newest generation BOV and make sure I buy genuine since this one came on it when I bought the car. I'll let you know what I find.

Yes, getting a new one is the easiest way. I run Tial valves, never seem to have a problem with them.
