can't tell for sure in that pic- is that a BOV or a BPV?

If BOV, it's leaking at idle, essentially a big vac leak. Do you have any means of monitoring your fuel trims or AFR's?

Remove BOV, replace with proper BPV, and good to go. Or get a tuning device and run BOV

agreed with yeams6.

If you run BOV you are spitting out air the system is counting on to run properly. This can be circumvented with the use a tuning device to tell the system the air is not really there.



Why a BOV? Because race car?
